5 cloves garlic
1/4 cup chopped fresh rosemary
5 sprigs fresh rosemary

Take your hand and slide it between the skin and the meat on the breast, as well as loosening the 'pockets' between the leg and wing joints. Scoop some of the rosemary butter mixture onto your fingers and begin to stuff into the 'pockets' on the breast, leg, wings, etc. (Save approximately 1/4 of the rosemary butter mixture and rub on the inside of the chicken.)
Season the cavity of the chicken with the salt, pepper and paprika. Add the quartered lemon, rosemary sprigs and sliced garlic to the chicken cavity. Bind the legs with culinary twine and tuck the wings into the leg joints to secure.
Place the chicken breast up onto the roasting rack and into the oven. Roast for approximately 50 minutes, or until the juices run clear. Remove the 'stuffing', carve and serve.

Simple Salmon Pasta Salad

Post  admin on 2008-05-29, 17:06



Today's Simple Salmon Pasta Salad tastes great made with our flash-frozen fillet portions, or with our canned Wild Redô Sockeye Salmon, which makes it even easier.



This light seasonal recipe couldn't be simpler or more healthful.



From a reductionist perspective - which is inherently presumptious given the state of nutrition science, but can help us plan a rounded, healthful diet - every ingredient in it offers beneficial nutrients and food factors.



Wild Salmon is a superior source of omega-3s, protein, and vitamin D (calcium, too, if you use our Traditional Wild Red canned Sockeye).
Wild Salmon, colorful vegetables, and spices all feature ample amounts of potent antioxidants.
Vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals, and fibers, plus a variety of anti-cancer phytochemicals.
Pasta, which too often gets a bad rap, provides protein and brain-fueling carbs. And, if it is rinsed and chilled immediately after cooking, substantial amounts of its carbs convert to resistant starch, which stabilizes blood sugar.

Simple Salmon Pasta Salad

Makes 4 servings



1/2 lb rotini pasta

One (6 oz) wild Salmon portion (Sockeye, King, or Silver) OR one can (7.5 oz) Wild Redô Sockeye Salmon (traditional, skinless-boneless, or no-salt-added)

1/4 cup ripe olives, sliced

1/8 large red, orange, or yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced

2 green onions, chopped

1 cup celery, thinly sliced

1 cup carrots, thinly sliced

2-4 tablesthingys organic extra virgin olive oil

2 tablesthingys red wine vinegar

1/4 teasthingy crushed organic oregano leaves

1/4 teasthingy sea salt (or to taste)

1/8 teasthingy organic black pepper or organic Lemon Pepper Seasoning



Broil or pan-cook thawed Salmon portion for 7-8 minutes. Or, scoop Salmon from can.
Break cooked or canned Salmon into 1-inch chunks.
Cook the pasta al dente, according to the instructions on the box, rinse with cool water, then set, covered, in the refrigerator to chill.
In large bowl, mix the pasta, Salmon, olives, bell pepper, carrots, celery and onion.
In a smaller bowl, combine the vinegar, oil, oregano, salt and pepper; mix well, then pour this dressing over the Salmon mixture, tossing gently.
Serve immediately (or cover, chill and serve later).

Orange Basil Shrimp Skewers

Orange Basil Shrimp Skewers
By Micah and Dina Bradley

Description
Grilled or baked shrimp skewers marinated and basted with an orange basil sauce.

Ingredients
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
3 TBSP papaya juice or pineapple juice
2 tsp cornstarch
1 bunch basil chopped
1 pound applewood smoked bacon

Directions
Preheat oven to 350F. Arrange bacon in a single layer on sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for 5 minutes, set aside. In a medium sauce pan combine the orange juice concentrate, chopped basil, and the juice. Place the shrimp in a shallow baking dish and pour 1/2 of the orange juice mixture over the shrimp. Cover and put in the refrigerator to marinate, turning occasionally. Heat the other half of the orange juice mixture over low heat. Stir the cornstarch into a small amount of water to dissolve; add to orange juice mixture. Cook until thickened and keep warm until ready to serve. If the sauce thickens too much, add a little juice to thin to desired consistency. Wrap the shrimp with bacon (reserve the marinade) and put them onto skewers. Grill for 3-4 minutes on each side on medium heat until shrimp are pink, basting with the reserved marinade. Serve with the orange basil sauce. This dish can also be baked, just place skewers on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and cook at 350F for 4-5 minutes until shrimp are pink, turning once and baste with the reserved marinade.
