I have a recipe for APPLE-BALSAMIC SALMON to pass along. To make this recipe you’ll be needing Salmon Fillets, Sea Salt, Apple Jelly, Balsamic Vinegar, Granny Smith Apples, Gala Apples, Leeks, and Course Ground Black Pepper. So you can find this Diabetic Friendly recipe and more all at the Diabetic Gourmet Magazine website. You can also sign up to receive wonderful recipes, engaging articles, helpful and healthful tips, critically important news and more. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2021! https://diabeticgourmet.com/

APPLE-BALSAMIC SALMON

Ingredients

4 (4-ounce) skinless salmon fillets, 3/4 to 1 inch thick
1/4 to 1 teaspoon fine sea salt (normal table salt can be used)
1/4 cup apple jelly
2 teaspoons aged balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup julienne-cut, unpeeled, Granny Smith or other green apple (1/4 x 1-1/2-inch-long slivers)
3/4 cup julienne-cut, unpeeled Gala or other reddish apple (1/4 x 1-1/2-inch-long slivers)
1/3 cup very thin sliced and quartered leek (white and light green portion only)
Course-ground black pepper

Directions

1 – Preheat oven to 450 F. Fold each piece of paper crosswise in half. Cut 4 half-heart shapes 7 inches longer and 4 inches wider than the fillets (the fold edges will be the centers of the hearts). Open each paper or foil heart; set aside.
2 – Lightly sprinkle salmon with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place each fillet near the center on one side of each heart.
3 – Heat apple jelly over low heat or in a microwave oven just until melted. Remove from heat; stir in balsamic vinegar. Spoon mixture evenly over fillets. Toss together apples and leek. Place mixture evenly on top of fillets.
4 – Fold opposite side of each heart up and over the fish and apple mixture. Starting at top of heart, fold edges to seal open sides by making small tight folds. Twist tip of hearts to close packets. Place packets on baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 12 minutes until fish flakes easily. (Carefully open packets to check doneness.)
5 – To serve, cut packets open by slashing a large X on the top of each, then fold back paper. Transfer packets to dinner plates and serve with rice. Or, if desired, remove fish with apples from packets and place slightly on top of rice; spoon over juices. Season to taste with additional salt and the pepper.
NOTES:
This recipe makes enough balsamic-apple juice for serving over brown rice.

I have another Diabetic Friendly Dish to pass along, Salmon With Cilantro-Lime Salsa. This dish is made using Salmon Fillets, Salt, Pepper, Spices, Olive Oil, Cilantro-Lime Salsa, Garlic Clove, Cherry Tomatoes and more! The Dish 214 calories and 3 net carbs per serving.

Salmon With Cilantro-Lime Salsa
If you crave a hot, delicious, low-carb lunch, her Salmon With Cilantro Lime Salsa is for you.

Ingredients
Preparation time: 10 to 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10 to 15 minute.

Salmon
6-8 ounces skin-on salmon (2 fillets)
1/4 teaspoon each kosher salt and pepper (mixed together)
1/2 teaspoon each chili powder, garlic powder and paprika (mixed together)
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Cilantro-Lime Salsa
1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon of lime juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic clove
1/4 cup of quartered cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon of diced red onion
1/2 tablespoon of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions
Yield: 2 servings
Serving size: 1 fillet

1. Combine first six ingredients for Cilantro-Lime Salsa in a bowl. Add salt and pepper mixture to taste. Set aside or place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

2. Pat the salmon skin dry with a paper towel. This step is necessary for a nice, crispy skin. Season the skin with half of your salt and pepper mix.

3. Season the flesh side of the salmon with the salt and pepper mix and the chili powder, garlic powder and paprika mix.

4. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

5. Once the oil is shimmering, place the salmon skin-side down; hold down for 10 to 15 seconds until it relaxes and lies flat.

6. Cook for about 5 minutes over medium-high heat before flipping over. If you feel resistance as you try to flip the salmon, let it cook a couple of minutes longer. Tip: You should be able to slide the spatula relatively easily under the fish when getting ready to flip it.

7. Turn down the heat, flip to the flesh side and let it cook over medium heat for about 3 to 5 minutes, until golden brown. Depending on the thickness of the salmon, you may want to cook it a little longer or less.

8. The fish should be opaque (pink) when done. Test for doneness by slightly cutting open the thickest part of the salmon. If it flakes, you’re done!

9. Serve the salmon topped with the Cilantro-Lime Salsa and your choice of side.
