What's your take, is fish brain food? Some say yes and some say no. But many researches have found that the high content of Omega-3 fatty acids in Salmons is good for the brain. It helps the brain works better and improves memory besides protecting the nervous system from the deteriorating effects of aging. Talking about the benefits of fish in our diet reminds me of the famous quote from Bruce the shark in Finding Nemo, he said "Fish are friends, not food"... err i have to say sorry but i am stuck with what Mum drummed into my head :)
So, Salmon aka brain food was on the menu for lunch the other day and i wanted to try out a new way of making it. Well, not totally new as i intended to bake it like always, probably just a new glaze/sauce. I was wondering if there were any recipes out there for something orangey, a quick search found me landing on plenty!
