  • 1-1.5 # fresh salmon fillets or steaks
  • 1 T. each of fresh chopped parsley, rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon capers
  • 1 peeled garlic clove, sliced

Place salmon in a skillet and cover with water.  Add herbs, capers, and garlic.  Bring water to a boil, turn down heat to simmer, and cook until salmon flakes easily with a fork in the thickest spot (usually ~ 10 minutes per inch of thickness).  Save the poaching liquid for the Fish Stew (may freeze).  Sometimes our cats get a very special treat by having the cooled liquid put on their dry food!

1.5 # of fresh fish serves 4 people.


In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
