I posted a picture of this super simple, healthy recipe over on Instagram and lots of you asked to see a healthy recipes series on the blog and hey presto, your wish is my command. This has been my failsafe lunch this past week, it’s extremely versatile, you can use any Veg that you like, put pretty much anything on the salmon (within reason) and if you are on the go you can make it the night before and eat it cold, winner!
:YOU WILL NEED:
+ 1TBSP Sesame Oil
+ Veg of Choice Spiralized or Thinly Sliced
+ Fillet of Salmon
+ Salt & Pepper
+ Sesame Seeds (Optional)
1. Wash your vegetables and start cutting them into long thin strips, I use a vegetable peeler or you can spiralize them if you prefer. Toss together in a large bowl and sprinkle with Salt & Pepper, I also used chilli flakes on mine to add a bit of heat.
2. Line a grill pan with foil and place your Salmon in the middle, at this point you can drizzle some oil over, add the juice of a lemon,S&P or any herbage that you wish, the choice is yours. Pop under the grill and cook for around 5minutes depending on the size of the fillet, stick a knife in to check it’s done all the way through, fish doesn’t take long to cook so make sure it doesn’t burn!!
Pop 1TSBP of Sesame Oil into a Wok or Large frying pan and heat until it smokes, add your Vegetables and toss, you want them Al Dente and not soggy so make sure you only fry them for a few minutes so they retain their crunch and don’t forget to sprinkle over your sesame seeds at this point.
4.Turn out into a pre-heated bowl and once the Salmon is cooked place on top. Garnish with your preferred herb.
TADA.. There you have it, A quick stir fry which tastes incredible and is guilt free.
If you taking it to work or school the next day let it all cool down fully, place in a Tupperware box and pop it in the fridge overnight.
