Earlier this year, Madonna, the ageless iconic superstar, announced to the world that she was embarking on a ‘salmon retox’ program to “knock 12 years off of her appearance.”
While it might be ambitious to think we can knock more than a decade off of our looks, think again. If anything can do it, it is the anti-inflammatory diet, nutritional supplements rich in antioxidants and skin care topicals. This is because inflammation is responsible for many of the internal and external signs of aging.
Madonna’s truly inspiring history of determination and commitment will go a long way in helping her achieve her goals.
Try this delicious recipe this weekend!
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets,
4 tablespoons white sesame seeds
2 tablespoons olive oil
fresh cilantro, sushi ginger, low sodium soy sauce
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Season salmon with salt and pepper.
Combine sesame seeds in shallow baking dish. Brush salmon fillets lightly with oil and dredge the flesh side (not skin side) in the seeds. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the salmon seed-side down in the pan just until it is light golden – do not burn the seeds or they will be bitter. Lightly brown skin side as well.
Transfer fillets, sesame seeds up, in the baking dish and place the salmon in the oven. Roast for 7 to 8 minutes. Serve the roast salmon immediately with sushi ginger and low sodium soy sauce.
