Project Description

Good afternoon folks! Have I got a treat for you! :-)

Salmon&Flowers

This week I have really been focusing on what I am eating… Far to many “naughty” treats have been creeping into my diet since moving to the US, and I think I’ve packed on a couple of pounds.

In order to get back on track, alongside fat burning hill sprints on my morning run, I’ve made sure that what I am putting into my body is nutritionally balanced, and isn’t what I consider to be a “paleo” junk food.

Salmon&Salsa2

My paleo and mango salsa dish tastes amazing, and literally takes around 15 minutes to make. There’s not loads of washing up and doesn’t it look pretty.

I was lucky enough to pick up some gorgeous edible flowers at a farmers market at the weekend, but no worries if you can’t get hold of any, this dish works perfectly without!

This salmon dish is Whole 30 approved; the sweetness from the mango in the salsa totally quashed my sweet cravings. No dark chocolate treat for me last night! 😉

To serve 2

You will need:-

  • 2 Fillets of salmon, seasoned
  • 3 Large radish, diced
  • 1/4 of red onion, diced
  • 1/2 avocado, diced
  • 1 handful of leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 mango, diced
  • Edible flowers for garnish

Directions

  1. Heat up a pan, add a splash of olive oil and raise to a medium heat.
  2. Season your salmon and add to the pan, fry for 7 minutes on each side, turning regularly. If your salmon is thick, fry the sides too.
  3. Meanwhile, dice your ingredients, and add to a bowl. Give a good stir. Add a splash of olive oil. It should now be ready to serve.
  4. Once your salmon is cooked through, simply top the salsa onto the salmon.
  5. Garnish with edible flowers.
  6. Now serve.

How easy was that!! :-) Tastes great. Looks impressive, and is packed full of nutritious goodness. Heck you could even serve this dish at a dinner party.
