Salmon is not a typical breakfast protein in America, but in other parts of the world fish is common for the first meal of the day. This recipe has a nice amount of sweet and heat and we think it is perfect for a healthy way to start the morning. Serve Chile Maple Crusted Salmon with our Sweet Potato Bacon Latkes and Homemade Applesauce for an impressive yet affordable brunch.
Product Highlight: Rancho Gordo New Mexican Red Chile Powder
Rancho Gordo is an amazing company based out of Napa. Steve Sando, the founder of Rancho Gordo travels throughout Mexico and Central America searching for unique and rare legumes and herbs. He has teamed up with Xoxoc and buys beans directly from farmers in Mexico that grow Heirloom varieties. (Heirloom varieties are open pollunated and never hi-brid!) This partnership allows everyone to thrive. The farmers crop is pre-sold and customers now have access to many completely obscure and wonderful beans and spices that would be almost impossible to try otherwise.
