Recipe: Detoxifying Asian-Style Salmon Stir-Fry

by JJ Virgin on January 26, 2019

It’s one of those nights when you’re home late, you need dinner in a hurry, and you’re starting to think about take-out.

Stop! In less time than it will take for your order to arrive, you can have this delicious stir fry finished.

It includes savory salmon (We love Vital Choice’s Salmon – check them out HERE!), with plenty of healthy omega-3 fats, plus a mix of crisp-tender veggies that are just as full of flavor. You can serve your stir fry with shirataki noodles for added fiber, if you like.

The end result is a scrumptious, gluten-free meal that’s both nourishing and filling. (And unlike that takeout you were considering, there won’t be any exhaustion, bloating, or guilt later!)
