This recipe is wonderful with fresh microgreens, but if you don’t grow them or can’t find them, arugula offers a wonderful flavor. The tangy, lightly spicy coconut sauce is perfectly complemented by the spicy, nutty taste of arugula. If salmon isn’t the best option in your seafood department, trout would make an excellent alternative.
- 8 oz. skinless, boneless salmon fillets
- 1 (13.5 oz.) can reduced fat coconut milk
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed
- 3 in. piece of ginger, crushed
- Zest of 1 lemon
- 1 shallot, minced
- 4 cups micro greens or baby arugula
- 1 chili pepper, thinly sliced (optional)
- Combine the coconut milk, wine, garlic, ginger, lemon zest and shallots in a medium frying pan. Bring to a simmer. Turn off the heat and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
- Add salmon and bring back to a simmer over medium heat. Cover and cook for 5-10 minutes, until fish is opaque through.
- Carefully remove the fish from the cooking liquid and set aside. Strain the liquid into a bowl to remove the flavoring ingredients and return liquid to pan.
- Bring liquid to a boil and continue cooking until it reduces to desired thickness (10-12 minutes). Stir periodically to prevent scorching.
- To serve: Place room temperature salmon over greens and top with cream and optional chili peppers.

It’s back to school season. That means it’s time to stock up on new gear, so your students are prepared to start the school year in style. Don’t forget about school lunch as you create your shopping lists. Whether your family has decided between school lunch or lunch from home, there will likely be a field trip where your child could use these lunch supplies. Parents have a lot of cool new products to choose from to ensure that their child’s lunch is not only nutritious and safe, but also looks appetizing at lunch time. For this month’s Nutritious Nudge, I created a list of lunch supplies and considerations to help parents with their back to school shopping.
