Salmon and Ginger Beer

Ginger: it's not just a redhead. 

I've known for a long time that it helps reduce nausea (hence, ginger ale when you're sick) but ginger has a number of other health benefits as well:

1. Ginger reduces gas.

2. Ginger whets the appetite.

3. Ginger is anti-inflammatory. 

Apparently, ginger and fish are BFF's since Woman's Day has published more than several recipes that include salmon and ginger and if you're a sushi fan like me, you're aware that raw fish is served with thin slices of ginger to cleanse your palette between servings and aids in the digestion of raw fish.

If you can get through this clip without being thoroughly annoyed by the narrator's voice, then be my guest. 

Broiled Salmon with Gingery Cucumber Salad

This is a fairly easy recipe that doesn't take a lot of time. 

If you want to get fancy, you can try ginger beer with the meal. I have never tried it but I heard a rumor you can buy Jamaican ginger beer at Kroger. Ginger beer is non-alcoholic.
