Maple Rosemary Salmon Skewers with Rutabaga Celery Root Mash

Print

I am always trying new ways to jazz up salmon since I eat it at least once a week. In fact, for those of us who are MTHFR positive, it is recommended we eat one pound of omega-rich fatty fish a week. Here’s a fun twist on your already delicious and nutritious salmon. Be sure to accompany it with this rutabaga celery mash!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This entree has everything you need for a varied diet full of healthy fats, fiber, and protein. Pairing a meat such as fish with vegetables is a great way to make sure you are getting enough essential nutrients. This recipe has it all--fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, iron, calcium and B vitamins (just to name a few).

When making this dish, go easy on the salt. Celery root is naturally high in sodium compared to other fruits and vegetables, and the soy sauce on the salmon skewers may be all you need to get that salty flavor you might be craving!

An individual who is positive for a mutation in the MTHFR gene may have elevated homocysteine levels. One way to help lower homocysteine levels is by increasing your intake of foods rich in folate, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 (such as salmon).
