Bring your besties together for an end of the summer gathering and this simple, yet elegant, Raspberry Balsamic Glazed Salmon
Food is love
When we invite others to gather around our table and partake in a meal we are offering so much more than just food. Community and conversation shared by a group is deeply nourishing and connects us on a higher level. Think about the last time you communed over a meal with family and friends. Was it about the food or the feelings you got from being there, in the moment, enjoying the company of those around you? Making time and space for shared meals is one of the greatest gifts we can offer. It doesn’t matter if the meal is perfect or if your house is spotless – what matters is that you come together. So put aside the ‘shoulds’ and the other excuses and fill your table with food, family and friends. Because this is truly what they mean when they say “Food is love.”
Our Raspberry Balsamic Glazed Salmon is the perfect meal to serve when friends gather. With less than 10 ingredients you can put a simple yet elegant meal on the table in under 30 minutes. This means you can spend more time being fully present with those around you and less time fussing in the kitchen.
The glaze can be made ahead up to a day in advance then generously spooned over fresh salmon filets. (Curious about choosing the safest salmon? Be sure to read this post.) Just a quick broil in the oven or a few minutes on a hot grill while you dress the salad or prepare you vegetable of choice is all it takes to make this healthy meal come together.
At the risk of belaboring the point, with summer winding down now is the perfect time to bring friends together for a meal and good conversation. Make a call, send a text or walk across the street. Gather the people you love to be around and break bread enjoy this Raspberry Balsamic Glazed Salmon made with the brightest, sweetest and juiciest berries from Driscoll’s.
