Having been in the beauty industry for two decades, I have always been surrounded by people that are trying to look and maintain their beauty. My clients and I talk about various types of foods, from raw and vegetarian, to protein and Gluten-Free diets. Eating well and physical estetics have always gone hand in hand.

• 2 Salmon Steaks
• 1/4 cup Tamari sauce (GFree)
• 1/4 cup water
• 1/2 tsp rice vinegar
• 1/2 tsp sesame oil (gfree)
• 2 cloves crushed garlic
• 1 tbsp sugar
• 1 tsp ground or fresh ginger
Combine all ingredients except garlic and ginger in a sauce pan, bring to a boil, then reduce for approx 10 min. once youve reduced it, add ginger and garlic. Let cool, pour 3/4 of sauce over salmon, (if you have the time to marinate for an hour, it will taste amazing… if not, its ok, let it sit for a few, go set the table..open your wine and have a few sips…
Put your salmon in the broiler on the top rack, cook on each side for approx 4-6 minutes, turn and baste with the remaining marinade, cook a few more minutes, then serve your salmon atop a bed of white or brown rice. Use the remaing 1/4 sauce remaining in sauce pan to garnish each salmon streak and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
