When East meets West, great things can happen.
Take actor David Carradine, and the ancient art of Kung Fu workout videos. East met West and something magical happened.
Case in point: Asian Salmon.
This dish is as delicious as it is nutritious. You marinade the salmon all day long in a mixture of fresh ginger, garlic, green onions, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar and oil. I replaced brown sugar with a sugar-free sweetener to make the recipe low carb. The result is a flaky and succulent fish with a nice punch of Asian flavoring. It’s so good. It’s enough to make you break out some Tai Chi moves. (video below)
Perhaps the “waiting for fish” pose?
