Salmon stir fry that is good for your skin!

I am going to be on ABC’s View from the Bay to discuss “Nutrition from the Inside Out–Eating well for your Skin”. For the show I came up with this simple stir fry recipe that is jam packed with foods that will make your skin glow!

Salmon is an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids that can decrease inflammation, redness and irritation. Carrots have Vitamin A which is good for clearing up breakouts and acts as an antioxidant, bell peppers have Vitamin C, another antioxidant and can assist in collagen production and spinach is a great source of folate which can help repair DNA production allowing cells to renew.

Here you go!

Take two, 4oz wild salmon steaks and sprinkle over 1 tsp of garlic powder, 1 tsp of onion powder, 1 tsp lemon pepper, 1 tsp of oregano. Then spray olive oil lightly over the fish and place in broiler. Broil for 6 minutes on each side.

With a sauté pan, heat 1 tsp of olive oil. First add 1 cup of chopped carrots with 1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar. When carrots start to soften add 1 cup of bell peppers. When both are cooked to taste add 2 cups of fresh spinach for only a short. Let the steam from the pan cook the spinach and remove pan from the heat quickly to prevent the spinach from wilting.

Cut fish into smaller pieces, add to vegetables and enjoy!
