Apple Wood Smoked Salmon and Greens

Apple Wood Smoked Salmon and GreensAfter reading Grain Brain last year we changed our diet and eat somewhat “Paleo” now to keep simple carbs at bay. Being mostly vegan can make this a challenge, but since we do eat fish on occasion I guess you could say we’re Paleo-Veg-Aquarian.

Wild caught salmon is high in protein and has many health benefits including immune boosting properties and Omega-3 fatty acids that help with brain function, so we try to eat salmon a few times a week.

Kirk made this Apple Wood Smoked Salmon & Greens for dinner the other night, which was fantabulous. The Apple Wood Smoked Sea Salt, made with Yakama Apple Wood, makes any dish taste better. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
