Great healthy recipe for salmon lovers!

There are so many reasons to eat fish especially because of it's high in omega 3 oils, which have been shown to keep our bodies healthier and more energized. Pacific salmon just happens to be one of the food sources that we get to enjoy here in the Pacific Northwest more than in any other area. So this hub is dedicated to the recipe using salmon, which is one of our favorites and easy to cook. Then I have added some interesting facts about salmon and it's health benefits.

The side dish today which compliments the salmon nicely is yummy chinese vegetable rice and for dessert we feature a lovely banana and lime cake.

Do try these recipes, I know you and your family will love them. Bon apetite'.

Banana and lime cake

There's always room for dessert when you have a healthy meal like this one, but of course that is personal choice. So if you are up for it try this cool recipe it's only 360 calories and 2.8 grams of fat content per serving.

Ingredients:

  • 10-1/2 oz all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 6 oz light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp lime rind, grated
  • 1 medium egg beaten
  • 1 medium banana, mashed with 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 2/3 cup low-fat unsweetened yogurt
  • 4 oz golden raisins

Topping:

  • 4 oz confectioner's sugar
  • 1-2 tsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp lime rind finely grated
  • 6 - 7 sliced bananas for garnishing each piece of cake
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and line a deep 7-inch round cake pan with baking parchment. Sift the four, salt and baking powder into a mixing bowl and stir in the sugar and lime rind until well combined.
  2. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and ad the egg, banana, yogurt, and golden raisins. Mix until thoroughly incorporated.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the pan and smooth the surface. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until firm to the touch or if you insert a toothpick it comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
  4. To make the topping, sift the sugar into a small bowl and mix with the lime juice to form a soft, but not too runny frosting. Stir in the lime rind. Drizzle the frosting over the cake letting it run down the sides.
  5. Decorate with banana chips and lime rind. Let stand for 15 minutes so that the frosting sets.

Variations: Replace the lime rind and juice with orange, and the raisins with walnuts for a complete different tasting cake - enjoy!
