Too Hot to Cook Recipe

Here is a recipe that won’t heat up the kitchen, is healthy and satisfying and perfect for those hot summer days with an index heat of 110!

This is taken from The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen, by Rebecca Katz with Mat Edelson.  Wild salmon is higher in omega-3”s and is has good cancer-fighting benefits.  You can find good wild salmon in the can these days.  I personally buy Costco’s Kirkland Signature Trident Seafood Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon.

This recipe is easy to prepare, has a few key ingredients but you can add your own favorites and you have a delicious dish that’s rich in protein.  Serve it in a pita, wrap it in a tortilla or pile it on top of a salad.  YUM!
