This epic gut-friendly recipe is sure to impress anyone you make it for. It’s packed with rich buttery flavor from the salmon, the creamy hemp seeds and delicious fresh thyme. Here, we’ve paired it with a fresh salad made from raw fennel and radicchio. These naturally bitter veggies are the perfect accompaniment to cut through the richness of the other elements. In current eating trends, bitter veggies are becoming less and less prominent. People are becoming accustomed to the mild and sweet taste of highly cultivated common supermarket produce, but these bitter veggies are amazing for your health! The liver loves them and they are packed with a variety of vitamins and minerals that may not be in many conventional fruits and vegetables.
