Salmon & Cremini Mushroom Skewers With Green Velvet Sauce

November 26, 2018

Author: Lily Mazzarella
I like the idea of kabobs—but don't usually find them very satisfying: some items are undercooked (usually the onions and peppers of traditional kabobs), while others are charred to crisp. I realized there was a simple solution for this: keep "like with like" on the skewer, and cook each item to its own specification. A triangle of red onion between each piece of salmon and mushroom imparts a savory goodness while acting as a spacer, allowing for more even grilling. Make sure the onion is smaller than your other grillable pieces so that they get good contact with the grill!

The sauce in this recipe is OUTRAGEOUSLY delicious and packed with anti-inflammatory goodness: detoxifying cilantro + anti-inflammatory garlic, ginger and turmeric. It also takes 5 minutes to make and stores beautifully. Who says cleanse food has to be boring?

Note: this recipe is lightly adapted from Barbara Kafka's brilliant book, The Intolerant Gourmet. I highly recommend it!!

Helps with sleep

I've been taking this in the evening before bed for about 6 months and it definitely helps me go to sleep more quickly, and also sleep more soundly through the night.
Digestible and effective.

The best B Vitamin I've tried

I'm very happy with this vitamin. Easily digestible, and I can feel the difference in energy levels when I'm taking this regularly.

I love this

I take this most mornings for both a mood and energy boost. I also take it if I’m feeling sluggish and want to enhance mental clarity. I highly recommend this blend.

Gift Card

Received the gift certificate for my birthday from my daughter-in-law. I Had shopped in Farmacopia one year ago. Wanted to shop again. Due to Covid it’s hard to do. Searching for products online was easy. Purchasing items online was easy. Calling the store to make sure my order was ready was easy. Picking up my purchase at the store was easy. I will shop Farmacopia again. Looking forward to trying all the products I purchased.

Definitely helps

I’m not celiac but I am lactose & gluten intolerant. I avoid eating gluten always but sometimes I’m tempted by cheese. I recently ate some goat feta and I had no problems. I didn’t over unduly. Usually any amount of dairy causes me stomach pains and so much bloating. I don’t make a habit of taking this in a regular basis but it’s also come in very handy when I’ve gone out to eat or over to a friends (pre covid) and cheese has bean sprinkled on top and it’s always hard to remove it all.
