Conti's and a Baked Salmon Recipe

Salmon is my favorite food. I've always liked it because it tastes exquisite and is easy to cook as well. An easy recipe is to marinate it in Kikkoman soy sauce and pan-fry in butter. Presto, Ihave an instant meal.

Of course,  if you want dine out, the baked salmon of Conti's coffeeshop is quite popular. A bit of a luxury at P295.... it's a slice of the fish with vegetable sidings and a cup of their tasty paella rice. See photo above.

Recently, I decided to splurge and bought a big chunk of frozen salmon at the supermarket. I wanted  to try out a recipe I found online , using mayonnaise and parmesan cheese. Here's the result:

Here's how to make this Parmesan-baked Salmon:

1. Perheat oven to 400F.

2. Mix 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 2 tbsps. parmesan cheese and 1/8 tsp. ground pepper. Set aside.

3. Take out your salmon fillet and pour the right amount of lemon juice on it. Spread the cheese-mayonnaise mixture on top. Then sprinkle with crushed Ritz crackers, just enough to cover the surface of the fish.

4.Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until fish is done.

If you've ever had a week when you feel depressed, anxious, agitated, angry or one where others commented on your bad mood, then you know that even now our moods fall prey to outside — or inside — influences. Fortunately, we can control one of the biggest culprits: the food we eat.

Scientific research over the last several decades has led to the revolutionary discovery of opiate-like chemicals in the body that associate with opiate specific receptors in the brain and spinal cord, the neurotransmitters- which include dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. Hormones manufactured by your brain. At the neurochemical and physiological level, neurotransmitters are extremely important, since they carry impulses between nerve cells.

Serotonin is a chemical that helps maintain a "happy feeling," and seems to help keep our moods under control by helping with sleep, calming anxiety, and relieving depression.

Low Serotonin levels are believed to be the reason for many cases of mild to moderate depression which can lead to symptoms like anxiety, apathy, fear, feelings of worthlessness, insomnia and fatigue.

Dopamine, which makes people more talkative and excitable. It affects brain processes that control movement, emotional response, and ability to experience pleasure and pain.

Today, nutritional scientists are finding that certain foods are fixes for less-than perfect moods. Use their knowledge to kill two birds with one legume: Eat well while designing the mood you want.

Van Gogh is Bipolar only serves all natural and authentic happy-hormone-producing foods
Van Gogh FOOD helps you stimulate the production of deficient neurotransmitters- dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine in your brain.
In layman’s term- Van Gogh FOOD triggers the release of happy hormones in your body.
