Broiled Bocconcini di Pura Capra Wrapped in Speck
Bocconcini di pura capra are soft little pillows of bloom-rind goat’s milk cheese made in Piedmont, Italy, at the Caseificio Alta Langa. They are delicate, gooey, and creamy with a rich but not overly goaty flavor. They are perfect picnic cheeses as they are, but if I am near an open flame or broiler/grill when I have them, I cannot resist wrapping them in a piece of prosciutto, pancetta, or speck and giving them a quick blast of heat. The word bocconcini literally translates to “little mouthfuls,” and while the makers of the cheese were no doubt referring to the diminutive size of these little cheeses, this recipe always has me greedily trying to get the whole thing in my mouth at once. The perfect combination and simple preparation makes me smile every time. Bocconcini di pura capra is becoming more and more widely available at cheese shops and better quality grocers, though Marcellin or even Andante Dairy’s Accapella are also good options. Speck is a gently smoked ham from the Tyrol on the Italian-Austrian border. In addition to a delicate smoky flavor, traditional speck has the perfume of juniper berries, which are used in the speck-curing process.

salmon
There is nothing I love more than a simply broiled salmon topped with a slightly sweet, slightly salty glaze. While I typically glaze my fillets with maple syrup and a bit of soy sauce, fresh strawberries cooked down with a bit of strawberry jam makes for a delicious topping that can be made in mere minutes. Serve with a side salad or, as I did, with sautéed zucchini ribbons tossed in pesto. Click here to see 9 Ways to Enjoy Summer Strawberries.

I've never been one to detox. The idea of a juice cleanse gives me chills, salads are a bore, and I'm downright offended when I see meal replacement shakes masquerading as actual sustenance. If anything, I'd rather just scale down to something simple after an indulgent meal: soup, a hunk of crusty bread, a slab of cheese, and two or three tangerines. This meal epitomizes my moderation-and-not-deprivation mantra. Light and flaky white fish (I used cod, though you could use tilapia, halibut, catfish, or anything else, really) is married with the best of the waning season's flavors: the viscous kiss of maple, the licorice perfume of fennel, the savory, garlic-bitten chard. It's a delicious post-holiday meal that just so happens to be nutritionally sound. No matter how much you indulge in the end of the year's holiday treats, it's important to remember that even after that extra helping of gravy-doused turkey or buttery mashed potatoes, starvation is not the answer. With flavorful and wholesome cooking, you can eat still complete meals without worrying about the dreaded unbuttoning of the pants. Click here to see Simple Ingredients Made Spectacular.

Broiled Salmon
The thyme used in this quick, easy and healthy recipe was clipped from a small pot of thyme resting on the window ledge of The Daily Meal office. It adds a bright, almost lemony flavor to the fish that's enhanced by the lemon juice and zest in the recipe. I used wild sockeye salmon which has a firm, deep-red flesh, but you can use any other variety as well (just try to avoid Atlantic Salmon because it is overfished). I purposely didn't use any oil in this recipe, since salmon is such a fatty fish and you don't really need an extra fat when cooking it. Enjoy! Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Salmon 8 Ways
