Poached Salmon Infused With Green Tea

close-up-cooking-dinner-46239Looking for a healthy and delicious meal this holiday season, why not change it up by making a delicious Salmon poached in Teasia Green Tea. Not only is this recipe simple to make, but it’s even easier to eat.

Ingredients:
10 cups water
2 limes, halved
6 tablespoons honey, divided
4-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
4 to 6 Teasia Green Tea K-cups (prepare per instructions on package)
4 (6-ounce) boneless skinless salmon filets

Instructions:

  1. Put the water into a straight sided skillet or pot with a lid. Add 2 of the lime halves (squeezing the juice into the water before adding), 5 tablespoons of the honey, the ginger, salt and the peppercorns and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes to infuse the water with flavors. Remove and reserve ½ cup of this poaching liquid. Remove the pot from the heat and add the Teasia Green Tea. Carefully slide the salmon into the water. Cover and poach until the fish are just cooked through and firm to the touch, about 6 to 7 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small pot over low heat, simmer the reserve ½ cup of liquid along with the juice and zest of the remaining lime half, and remaining 1 tablespoon of honey. Cook until the liquid is reduced by 2/3 and thickened, 7 to 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the fish with a slotted spoon and arrange on a serving plate. Drizzle a little bit of the sauce over each piece of salmon before serving.

PRO TIP: Try this recipe with our Teasia Black Tea!

Chocolate Bundt Cake Recipe

brownie-cake-chocolate-45202The holidays are here! Start it off right with a Bundt Cake made with your favorite Teasia Coffee flavor. By the end of this holiday season your whole family will want the recipe.  A fun and favorable recipe that all your family members will surely enjoy, don’t take our word make it yourself today.

Ingredients:
Vegetable oil spray
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup canola oil
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup of Uganda Bugisu (brewed)
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 tablespoon corn syrup
1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. To make the cake: Place the cup of brewed Uganda Bugisu coffee, butter, and cocoa in a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl. Heat, stirring, until the butter melts. Remove from the heat, and whisk until smooth. Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes.
  3. While the chocolate is cooling, put the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour into a mixing bowl, whisking to combine.
  4. Pour the cooled chocolate mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and mix until thoroughly combined. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl, and mix again to incorporate any residue.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla, eggs, and heavy cream. Mix into the chocolate batter, stirring until thoroughly combined.
  6. Thoroughly grease a 10- to 12-cup Bundt pan, preferably non-stick. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake the cake for 50 to 55 minutes, until a long toothpick or skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Note: a pan with a dark interior will bake the cake more quickly; start checking at about 40 minutes.
  7. Remove the cake from the oven, wait 5 minutes, and turn the pan over onto a cooling rack. After 5 more minutes, lift the pan off the cake. Let the cake cool completely before icing.
  8. To make the icing: Combine the chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl, or in a saucepan set over medium heat. Heat until the cream starts to bubble around the edges.
  9. Remove from the heat, and stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Spoon the icing over the top of the cake, letting it drip down the sides.
  10. Store any leftover cake at room temperature, well wrapped, for several days. Freeze for longer storage.

PRO TIP:  To intensify the chocolate flavor of this cake and cut down on the sweetness level, try a stronger brew of Teasia Coffee .

STRONG:  Teasia Rwanda Coffee

SWEET: Teasia Tanzania Peaberry Coffee
