Taking the time to eat together is more than just a good idea. It is a great idea!!
So why do we wait for huge holidays to enjoy meals as a family? Finding time to eat together is more than just eating, it is actually healthy!
Studies show families that enjoy meals together have a significant impact on children.
They are less likely to do drugs and drink, have suicidal thoughts and eating disorders.
Sitting down and enjoying a meal together leads to better grades, learning new things and knowing what fork to use.
First we are going to create a Happy Hemp Dill sauce to marinate the salmon. In a blender combine 1 clove garlic, 4 sprigs of dill, 1 TBSP of olive oil, 4 TBSP of Happy Hemp, S and P to taste… Blend.
Pour the sauce of the salmon fillets, cover and put in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Tonight I am going to compliment the salmon with new potatoes and roasted brussels sprouts all served family style.
Potatoes: First clean the potatoes and place into a pot of water. Place on high heat. When water comes to a boil turn down to a low-medium flame. Cook for approx 20 min or until tender. Drain the potatoes and place back in the pot. Add to the potatoes fresh dill and drizzle olive oil. Right before serving turn on low eat and give a couple quick tosses.
Brussel Sprouts: preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove the outer layer of leaves off each sprout and cut in half. Place halves on a cookie sheet. lightly salt and drizzle with olive oil. Place in heated oven for approx 30 min.
Salmon: Add salmon into the heated 350 degree oven. Cook for 1o min. Take out and spoon sauce from sides on to the top of the fillet and place back in oven. Cook for another 10 min. Prepare a plate of lemon wedges to be served on the side.
Take out a large platter and place salmon, sprouts and potatoes.
Enjoy a warm meal over great conversation with the people you love!
