Salty-Sweet Miso-Glazed Salmon and Soba Bowls

I haven’t been spending as much time in the kitchen as I would like to, because when you start renovating and there is still stuff to do outside, your mind wanders, but I have been trying to perfect this amazing salmon recipe, and my oh my, it’s a winner. 

Salty-Sweet Miso-Glazed Salmon and Soba Bowls

Last year for Christmas my best friend gifted me this amazing encouragement calendar (you can find the 2019 version here). Each day, you tear off a page and see your new day motto. It has been spot on on so many occassions and I bet we can all relate to these messages of positivity, forgiveness, self-care and self-love.

Here I am world, open to everything you have to offer. 

I keep in mind that the road to freedom is through the doorway of forgiveness. 

I love myself exactly as I am. I no longer wait to be perfect in order to love myself. 

Gifts of kindness, love and appreciation are the greatest gifts we can give. I now share my good with others.

It’s been great, and I have been sharing many of these messages with my close friends to encourage them in their day-to-day goings on.

It’s slow-cooked in the oven resulting in a melt-in-your mouth fish with a beautiful salty-sweet crust from the maple miso. Amazing!

Restaurant quality food at home. Give it a go.
