Salmon Recipes: South Beach Recipes of the Week

I love reading about good food as much as I love cooking it, and I'm always interested when I find recipes on my favorite blogs that are perfect for my low-glycemic way of eating. I started South Beach Recipes of the Week as a way to share those finds with other South Beach Diet fans or anyone who's limiting sugar, white flour, and starchy foods in their diet. It was my friend Alanna who had the idea to feature these recipes in categories, so this week we're focusing on salmon, one of the world's healthiest foods, and so many ways to prepare it.

Since it's National Barbecue Month, we're starting out with a wonderful looking grilled salmon recipe from Meathenge. Biggles actually cooked this Mesquite Grilled Wild Salmon with Crushed White Sarawak Pepper a couple of years ago, but when I searched for grilled salmon this is the photo that spoke to me.

Another great way to cook salmon is on a cedar plank inside your barbecue grill, a method a couple in my neighborhood rave about it. I haven't tried it yet, but Ruth at Once Upon a Feast shows us how it's done, and her Cedar Planked Salmon looks just delicious.

I discovered 100% whole wheat Panko bread crumbs at my local Wild Oats store, and they would be perfect to make this Panko-Crusted Salmon from Elise at Simply Recipes. Honey is considered a "very limited" food for the South Beach diet, so I might replace the honey mustard with Dijon mustard and a touch of Splenda, or use the lowest-sugar type of honey mustard you can find.

Fiber at 28 Cooks calls herself a Vegequarian, which means she's mostly a vegetarian but she eats fish. I love tamarind, and this recipe for Tamarind Glazed Salmon sounds like an inspired combination to me.

Finally, a great sounding recipe that I'd love to have for dinner anytime is this Spicy Salmon with Mango Salsa from Blue Kitchen. If you're a South Beach Dieter, you'll need to save this for phase two or three because of the fruit, but I love the sound of the salmon and mango salsa together.

I'm a big fan of grilling salmon on a bed of lemons, it adds some nice flavour and prevents the salmon from sticking to the grill or falling apart.
