Crackers

  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup pepita seeds (or pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely grated on a Microplane
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt, plus more for sprinkling

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 300ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pepita seeds, and sesame seeds.
  3. Add the water, garlic, and salt. Stir with a spatula until combined. Allow the mixture to sit for a couple of minutes until the chia seeds absorb the water. After the 2-minute rest, when you stir the mixture, you shouldn’t see a pool of water on the bottom of the bowl.
  4. With the spatula (and a hand, if necessary), spread the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet in two small rectangles, about 12×7 inches each and 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle additional salt on top.
  5. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully flip each rectangle with a spatula. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes more, until lightly golden around the edges. Watch closely near the end to make sure they don’t burn. Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes on the pan and then break the rectangles into crackers and let cool completely on the pan. Store in an airtight container or jar on the counter for up to 2 weeks. You can also freeze the crackers in freezer bags for up to 1 month.

Tips:

  • * If the crackers soften while storing (this can happen in humid environments), toast them in the oven on a baking sheet at 300ºF for 5 to 7 minutes. After cooling, this should return them to their former crispness!

PINEAPPLE ORANGE SALMON TERIYAKI

www.lifemadesweeter.com

Ingredients
1 large (1 1/2 – 2 pound) salmon fillet or 4 salmon (4-6 ounce) fillets, skin on
kosher or sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon sesame oil
3-4 orange slices
Sauce
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce (use gluten free tamari or coconut aminos for paleo-friendly version)
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
3 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons of sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup orange juice (about half an orange)
2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch (or can use arrowroot starch)
2/3 cup chopped pineapples (can also use crushed, drain or leave out water if using the juice)
1-2 tablespoons water, as needed to thin out sauce
Garnish
sliced green onions, chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions
Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with a large parchment paper or aluminum foil. Lay salmon on top and season with salt, pepper and sesame oil. Slide orange slices halfway underneath the salmon, as pictured.

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, honey, sesame oil, orange juice, garlic, ginger and cornstarch. Bring to a boil and allow to thicken and bubble. Add pineapple (and water as needed if sauce is too thick) then pour enough sauce to evenly cover salmon (reserving some for drizzling before serving). Fold parchment paper or foil sides up to prevent juices from leaking through (does not have to cover salmon).

Bake in preheated oven for 12-16 minutes, or until the salmon is fully cooked depending on how large your fish is. Turn to broil and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes (folding down parchment paper or foil), or until caramelized and slightly charred.

Cut into sections, discard skin and serve immediately with extra sauce drizzled on top and your favorite sides, garnished with green onions and cilantro.
