It's summer, and that means the barbecues are open for business. I love the fact I can cook outside and don't have to turn on the stove and make the kitchen hotter than it is!
Maybe its time to liven things up with a few new recipes. Your coaches at Get Fit have pitched in to provide you with a cookbook filled with recipes to create oodles of different meals on the grill. Eating food good for you doesn't have to mean boring, and one of my favorite grill recipes is Salmon with Mango Salsa. (I wanted to give you this recipe just in case you couldn't get to the workshop. - find it below)
We love cooking on the grill, and we want you to love it too! Here's what we are going to do.
On Saturday, July 28th starting at 4:00pm and going until we finish grilling up some grub to eat, we'll talk food and nutrition centered around the grill.
Here is how it works, Coach Nancy will spend some time talking, answering questions, and sharing tips and tricks to use while grilling. Meanwhile Coach Dean will work his magic and grill us great grub to eat. You'll have to sign up quick as we don't have room for everyone at the picnic table. 🙂

Saturday, July 28th
4-6pm. or so
Let us know you'll be there. In the meantime grill up some Salmon and top it with mango salsa. You too will declare this as a favorite- guaranteed.
Salmon With Mango Salsa
1 mango peeled, pitted, and diced
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons lime juice (about one lime)
salt and pepper to taste
6 skin on salmon fillets (about 2 pounds)
Stir together the mango, cilantro, rep pepper, oil, and lime juice. Heat a grill to medium high. ( If you can hold your hand 3 inches above grill grates for 4-5 seconds its medium. If you can’t hold it there that long you’ve got medium high or high heat. Be careful when testing heat of grill this way.) Season salmon with salt and pepper and lightly brush with olive oil. Grill skin side down for 4-6 minutes. Turn them over and grill for another 4-6 minutes. Remove from grill and spoon salsa over top. Serves 4
(To make this prep time go faster, I've been known to buy fresh mango salsa pre made. I squeeze a bit of lime juice, add a bit of cilantro, and a few red pepper flakes to the premade salsa.)
