CSL tried Dom Organics, offering a growing variety of organically certified seafood products such as: Atlantic salmon, smoked salmon, and frozen salmon portions. The organic seafood is raised using all-natural, sustainable practices, in harmony with the environment.

Whip up this meal in minutes. Take premade pizza dough and roll flat. brush with olive oil and place in a hot oven. Remove and top with smoked salmon, fresh chives, and capers and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. We loved the taste of the, silky and mildly smoked salmon against the soft dough and sharp capers.

boil the quinoa and set aside. Season shrimp with salt and pepper and sautee in a pan. Add shrimp and quinoa to a salad of lettuce leaves, strawberry, feta, carrots and candied pecans. Serve with a tangy raspberry vinaigrette. We like the contrast of the sweet shrimp and zingy dressing.
