Featured in Foodie Mag ‘Velocurean’

We’ve been featured in foodie magazine Velocurean!

Just last month, writer Randy Bramblett and photographer Sherry Heck composed a beautiful recipe using our Hot, Sweet & Passionate set (Olio Diavolo, Passionfruit Vinegar & Lime Olive Oil). The dish: Salmon Over Arugula with Mango and Walnut Wild Rice. It looks amazing! Fresh, bold, and simple--our fave things in a meal.

We’re just thrilled to have been featured in such a delightful recipe, and we are stoked to try it out. Goodness knows we can never get enough of the Hot, Sweet & Passionate set—we’re always looking for more ways to use it!

Many thanks to Velocurean for such a thoughtful piece.

Grill Salmon filets on high heat (brush grill with olive oil). Cook until bright red starts to turn slightly pink – DO NOT overcook.

Toss arugula in olive oil and salt/pepper. Make a bed on plate and place salmon filet on top.
Serve rice on the side.

Makes: 4 servings (for portion controlled plates)
