It’s getting to be that time of year again, time to be a little more cautious of what I eat due to bikini season being right around the corner. This Salmon with Mustard and Brown Sugar Glaze is perfect for a light meal option. Currently I am enjoying the sunny days and cool nights here in the Houston area, but those won’t last long. Nope, soon it will be blazing hot. And not just hot, but humid. So it’s during this time I like to lighten up my eating. I usually do that with some fish. Specifically salmon, wild sockeye salmon is my favorite. Be sure to shop for sales on wild sockeye salmon, since it can sometimes be a little pricey. I can usually find wild sockeye salmon on sale at Sprouts for $9.99 a pound or at Costco in the frozen foods isle for even less.
Do you normally change up your eating habits with the seasons? What are your favorite meals for summer time? Let me know in the comments below.
