Sweet Wild Salmon with Red Onions and #SuddenlyGrainSalad #PlatefullCoOp #spons

Lately I have been on a HUGE Salmon kick. It's one of the best meats for your skin. I try not to have it more than 3 times a week, because of the Mercury worry, but I do love my Salmon fix! The following is a dish that is repeated a lot over here. My favorite is to mix sweet and savory, so this time I combined Blue Agave Nectar, Braggs Omega 3's, Garlic and red onions.

Thanks to General Mills and Plateful Co Op for sponsoring this discussion.

I decided to pair the Sweet Wild salmon with a very tasty herb filled, Tuscan Suddenly Grain Salad. This particular flavor consists of brown rice, quinoa, wheat berries, almonds and a tomato Parmesan herbed dressing. I loved the combination of the cheesy tomatoes with the light sweetness of the salmon.

 I am really loving these new mixes that I have tried. The prep time isn't very long and the incorporation of quinoa and brown rice is a nice change for Betty Crocker. It comes in a convenient bag that you cook in boiling water. Then drain the bag and add the sauce mix prepared ahead of time. Once done, I chilled it and served it with the Warm Salmon. The contrast in temperature was really appealing when mixed together.

One bag of Suddenly grain serves at least 4 people and they have several flavors that are on the sweet or spicy side.
