Hello FODMAPers & Friends,
Today’s recipe is a very easy and delicious seared salmon recipe featuring Case de Sante’s BBQ rub. The sweet and savory blend of spices from Case de Sante’s BBQ rub compliments the salmon beautifully. Add a splash of fresh lemon over the seared salmon and you are ready to enjoy a mouth full of delicious flavors that you and your belly will love.
I have been really enjoying seared salmon lately. Full of protein and healthy omega 3 fats, salmon is a nutritional powerhouse. If you enjoy seafood, try to consume two meals from the sea per week for the host of nutritional benefits it provides for brain, heart health and really…your entire body!

If you are interested in trying rice cakes, here is a quick synopsis of how I make them! I just make up a batch of jasmine rice (about 2 cups, cooked) and let it cool. I add 2 egg whites to the rice when its cooled. Then, lightly oil a 1/2 cup custard cup or ramekin and add rice pressing it firmly into cup with the backside of a spoon. I add 2 teaspoons of toasted sesame oil to large skillet over medium heat. I use a butter knife around the edge of the cup to loosen the rice mixture and then add it to the skillet and sprinkle the top of the rice cake with black sesame seeds. Repeat the process, making the rest of the rice cakes. Cook until both sides are nicely seared. You can get creative here and add thinly sliced scallions (green part, only), grated carrots, or complimentary herbs etc. to the rice prior to shaping into the ‘cake’ shape. We like the simplicity of the rice, toasted sesame oil and sesame seeds.
