Honey Beer Glazed Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa

Honey Beer Glazed Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa

I need this, it’s rather necessary. Since I spend my life contractually obligated to drink beer and eat foods like this and this, I need recipes like this Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa. For the sake of my liver and my skinny jeans, it’s important. But I can also act like a spoiled child when it comes to food and really need something that tastes fun and indulgent.

So I make these recipes that I get really excited about and hope that I don’t notice that it’s also rather healthy, much in the same way you smuggle cauliflower into your toddler’s mashed potatoes and hope they don’t notice. I do this with myself, I’m really good it. I don’t even notice that I’ve made a healthy meal because I got so excited to make it in the first place.

I know, it’s ridiculous. But I have to do what I can before my liver figures out how to call the cops on me for widespread abuse.
