Salmon and Rice
Makes 8 servings
Salmon is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce triglycerides. This recipe can be made with fresh or canned salmon. I prefer to use canned; it lasts a long time. When you buy fresh fish, you need to cook it immediately. Refrigerate the leftovers of this disk for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 1 month.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup canned chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped zucchini
1/2 cup chopped green beans
1/2 cup peas
2 x 9 ounce cans salmon in oil
1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
3 tablespoons plain wheat germ
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, or VA tablespoons parsley flakes
1/2 cup fish stock
1. In a saucepan over
medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the tomatoes, zucchini, green beans,
and saute until fork-tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
2. Add the salmon,
rice, wheat germ, parsley, and fish stock. Stir well and saute for 5 more
minutes. Let cool and
Dr. Kevin Says
Salmon and trout must be cooked well to avoid salmon poisoning, a parasitic
condition transmitted from snails, which can make dogs very sick. Never serve
freshly caught Pacific Coast fish to your pet without cooking it thoroughly.
Dogs should not eat raw fish.
