Many of the residents of Wilmington, Delaware are keeping to their New Year healthy eating resolutions by eating Salmon. Salmon is a great protein source and a superb source of heart-healthy omega 3 fatty acids. The environmentally best is canned salmon or wild salmon from Alaska, although wild salmon from Washington, Oregon and California is also environmentally ok.

2 portions fresh salmon grilled (or baked) on a cedar baking plank

Raspberry Sauce
3/4 cup Raspberry infused Mead
2 clove's finely minced fresh garlic
pinch of salt
pinch of cayenne pepper
1 1/2 cups fining chopped ribbons of spinach
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Teaspoon flour
Optional Pinch of pepper flake

Reduce Raspberry Mead over high-heat, stirring constantly. Once reduced by half add garlic, salt and cayenne. Add spinach, stirring gently until combined. Reduce to low heat. In a separate pan melt butter and slowly add flour, whisking constantly to prevent any lumps. Over medium heat gently combine 2 mixtures adding additional Raspberry Mead, if needed, to reach desired consistency. For additional spice add a pinch of pepper flake.

Plate salmon. Scatter half of spinach over each portion and top with remaining sauce.
