Greetings from Richmond!

I’m in the great state of Virginia for literally 24 hours hanging with my favorite hummus folks. The last time I visited Sabra headquarters was back in 2015. Hard to believe that was two years ago??!

Anyway, it feels good to be back chatting all things hummus and getting introduced to Sabra’s Plants with a Purpose initiative. More details to come, but follow along on InstaStories and Snapchat for behind the scenes!

Okay, today’s recipe is a new favorite. For some reason I am on a big salmon kick right now. Maybe it’s because swimsuit season will be here in two seconds. Dear. Sweet. Baby. Jesus. Truth? I am not ready to be dancing around a pool or beach sporting a two piece. All the cookbook recipe testing got me like WHOA.

Baked Miso-Hoisin Salmon with Crunchy Slaw

So my goal for the next month and a half before we head to Hilton Head over Memorial weekend is to exercise and eat healthy when I can. Because let’s be real, I am never going to say no to a plate of nachos and a glass of red wine. That would be a criminal. Random question, do you think I should get a fitbit? I wondering if that would help calm my LB shredding nerves.

Alright, back to the salmon. This Baked Miso-Hoisin Salmon with Crunchy Slaw is ridiculously easy which is why it’s become a new favorite. Mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl, brush the salmon with the sauce, and then bake. Top with crunchy slaw if you are feeling sassy. I eat the salmon as is or it goes great on top of salads….you know what? This would be great for lettuce wrap nights!

Yaaaaaaaas.  Add that to the list as well as tacos.

Shoot. I might need two Fitbits.
