When you live in the Midwest those first few days of warmer weather and sun usually in March brings a sense of renewal. So giving your food game a fresh start is always a good idea. Throwing some Mino Prime wild caught Atlantic Salmon on the grill is a quick and delicious solution to the winter time rut. We had the opportunity to partner with local Chicago chef, Morgan Berrington @forkmylifechi on a few recipes and she created this flavorful dish using Mino Prime fresh Atlantic Salmon filets and Baby Bok Choy. The flavors are amazing and leave you feeling renewed. Check it out.
