Wild Salmon Collard Wraps – Dinner Tonight!

Here is a another great recipe from Kia Sanford!

Wild Salmon Collard Wraps

Serves 2

  • 8-10 ounces wild salmon, cut into 6 even strips (roughly 1/2 thick and 4 inches long)
  • 3 large collard greens
  • 2 nori sheets (each sheet cut into 8 rectangles)
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced
  • 1 small fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  • 1 large chunk of ginger, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1⁄8 cup brown rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 1.5 tablespoons wheat free tamari
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • cilantro leaves for garnish
  • sunflower sprouts for garnish

    To make the Marinade:

    Whisk together the sesame oil, rice vinegar, mustard, and tamari. Stir in minced garlic and ginger. Place the sliced salmon into a bowl and add enough marinade to cover the fish. Marinate for 20-30 minutes

    To Make the Collard Wraps:

    Remove the stalk from the collards to give you 2 separate leaf pieces. Lay them onto your work surface, dark/shiny side down. Place 1-2 nori sheets on the middle of the collard leaf. Place 1 salmon strip onto the nori. Top with some carrots, fennel, cilantro leaves, and sprouts. Drizzle some of the marinade over everything. Roll the collards up (like a sushi roll)

    To Cook:

    Place salmon rolls onto a steamer dish. Steam for approximately 5-6 minutes. Serve alone or with brown rice and lime wedges

Releasing Toxins

Detoxification and the New Year go hand in hand, and there are less enjoyable ways than a hands-on session to help release the accumulated toxins and metabolic wastes that accumulate through the year. Massage offers a great cleansing addition to a detox program by assisting in the movement of both the blood and the lymph.

The lymphatic system, along without circulatory system plays a vital role in helping to cleanse our bodies. Gentle stroking and rhythmic rocking techniques assist in the bodies’ passive flow of lymph fluids helping to speed the reduction of lactic acids, uric acids, nitrogenous wastes and free radicals out of the body, allowing for your cleanse to be deeper and more thorough.

By increasing the circulation deep to the joints, in and around the lymph nodes and to the furthest extremities of the body as wastes are carried out, so too are beneficial nutrients carried in. Remember to hit the broth, and plenty of good brown rice before the session and be prepared to replenish after! Spring is coming…
