2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped (or grated)
Freshly grated zest and juice of 1 lime
1/4 tsp sea salt
Splash of soy sauce or tamari
1 bunch (about 1 1/4 lbs) of rainbow carrots, stems trimmed, washed and peeled
Handful fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
 
Directions: Heat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, combine first 6 ingredients. Beat with a fork to mix well. Arrange carrots in a 9×13 baking dish and pour syrup-oil mixture over them.

Chili Lime Salmon

We are always happy to support our native Idaho fisherman and his family as they are in Alaska right now fishing. It is really amazing that this family has kept fishing a family trade for four generations. Watch our Instagram for photos and updates!

Chili Lime Salmon is really simple – perfect for a quick bite.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice (or juice of 2 limes)
  • ¼ fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons organic olive oil ~ Save $2 now on our web site.
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (or 4 crushed garlic cloves) ~ You can find chopped garlic in a jar and whole garlic on our web site year round.
  • 1½ teaspoons red chili flakes (adjust to your preference of spice)
  • 1 teaspoon ground Cumin
  • 1½ teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey (like our honey by Treasure Valley Bees)
  • 4 salmon fillets (wild caught if possible)
  • 3 sweet bell peppers (we like to use different colors when available), deseeded and chopped
  • 1 onion, cut into wedges

Directions

Instructions Preheat oven to grill/broil settings on high heat. Spray a baking sheet tray with cooking oil spray; set aside. Whisk lime juice, parsley, olive oil, water, garlic, chili flakes, cumin, salt and parsley together t combine. Add the honey and whisk again until the honey runs smooth through the rest of the ingredients. Arrange the salmon fillets, peppers and onion in a single layer on the prepared baking tray; and pour over half of the marinade. Toss peppers and onion to coat; and rotate the salmon to coat in the marinade. Broil / grill until the peppers are just beginning to char at the edges (about 10 minutes) and the salmon is cooked to your liking (about 10 minutes). Remove from the oven and serve immediately with lime wedges. (If the peppers are not done to your liking, simply transfer the salmon to a plate and return peppers to the oven until roasted to your liking.
