During the holidays, certain foods remain a tradition within some families. However, I find the holidays to be a wonderful time to explore new recipes. Next to the traditional Thanksgiving dishes, I prepared a new one: Brussels Sprouts with Crispy Pancetta—which turned out to be a healthy hit! The only modification I made to the original recipe is not adding oil, as there is plenty of flavorful fat from the pancetta!
This recipe is courtesy of Candice Kumai, whom I had the pleasure of meeting a few months ago. I was given a copy of Candice’s cookbook and have been trying out recipes ever since. Two weeks ago, I tried the Kale and Fennel Caesar Salad, which was refreshing and hearty at the same time. With a lucky streak in the kitchen, I decided to try another one of Candice’s simple and delicious recipes. Salmon? —Yes, please!

Quinoa with Sautéed Mushrooms and Kale
Chopped salmon may not be a traditional dish but it’s perfect for make-ahead meals! It can be a delicious meal served over grains like brown rice, rice pilaf or quinoa. Cool it down and you can toss it on a bed of greens. For a refreshing summer salad, skip the soy sauce and hot sauce–season with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice.
