The preparation is very simple and straightforward. No more than 10-15 minutes needed to prepare and 20 minutes in the oven. It’s an aesthetically pleasing, healthy recipe that’s low glycemic, good for weight loss, or replenishing nutrients after working out. Salmon is one of the most nutrient dense foods in the world. It’s also great for people with diabetes or heart disease. Best of all, it tastes great.

Purple potatoes are used in this recipe for many health benefits over typical potatoes. Not only is the glycemic index lower than white potatoes, but they’re richer in antioxidants and other health benefits. A lower glycemic index means less insulin and glucose spikes after a meal. Doing this may help to prevent several different health disorders over time. Plus, the purple color looks amazing with the pink color of salmon.

Anthocyanins are the pigments in purple potatoes and several other foods. These colorful pigments are showing very promising research for lung health, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cognitive health, and even cancer. Consuming a variety of foods rich in these pigments on a regular basis may help lower the risk of some of the most common diseases in the world according to many studies.

Preparation

  • Peel potato and cut into thin slices.
  • Mix in 1/2tsp. olive or coconut oil, add salt, Cajun seasoning or any other blend of spices.
  • Mix 1 tsp vinaigrette, 1/2tsp. olive or coconut oil, 2 tsp parmesan cheese, and a dash of salt to the asparagus.
  • Rub in 1/2 tsp olive oil, Cajun seasoning(or any other seasoning blend), and 1 tsp. of balsamic vinaigrette to salmon.

Cooking

Heat oven to 375 and begin by cooking the potatoes for 10-12 minutes. Take out pan and flip the potatoes, while adding in the asparagus and salmon for the final 10-11 minutes. When finished, squeeze half a lime, a pinch of sale and pepper, and ½ tsp of butter on the salmon. Adding butter at the end of cooking gives superior taste and  health benefits over cooking with it. Enjoy!
