mean green super soupTOPTIP : Don’t spend too long chopping/prepping, its going in a blender at the end anyway 🙂
If you’d like to add a little kick, then 1 tsp of cayenne pepper goes really well in this dish, but does mean it wouldn’t be nightshade free

Shrimp and Basil Pesto Flat-bread Pizza

Shrimp and Basil Pesto Flat-bread Pizza

We’ve been on the look out for gluten free, dairy free, tomato free etc etc pizza. Where ever we have gone, nothing has quite hit the mark. I don’t really like most gluten free crusts, as they are often heavy and leave me feeling not too great afterwards.To be able to make something at home, that we could control the ingredients, AND tastes good has been a quest for some time.In this dish, we found it… We can’t tell you how happy we were to make it, try it and LOVE it. The toppings are only limited by your imagination.

Wholegrain Mustard Crusted Salmon Salad

Wholegrain Mustard Crusted Salmon Salad

Love salads during the summer, this one is great for lunch or dinner, and at just under 500 calories, works for our fast day meals too.Salmon has got that meaty feel and so full of flavor, making it a really satisfying and filling meal. Not to mention quick, healthy, fresh, and amazingly balanced. Take a look a the breakdown chart!!Its worth noting Salmon is an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin D, and selenium. Also a good source of niacin, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, phosphorus, and vitamin B6… need more reasons ? Avacados contain more potassium then bananas, are loaded with fiber and high in antioxidants like lutein which is important for eye health.

Servings 1 person
Calories 491 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • 4 oz Sockeye Salmon Fillets (Skin Removed)
  • 1 tbsp Wholegrain mustard
  • 2 tsp Coconut Aminos Garlic sauce

For the Salad

  • 2 cups Romaine lettuce sliced/shredded
  • 1 oz Carrot shredded
  • 1 1/2 oz Red Onion sliced
  • 2 tbsp Honey Mustard Vinaigrette <- click for the link to our recipe
  • 2.5 oz Avocado sliced or diced, (1/2 an avocado)
  • Salt & ground black pepper to taste

Instructions
 

Preparing & Cooking the the Salmon

  • Marinade the salmon fillet in the garlic sauce for 15-30 minutes
  • Remove the filet from the marinade, and using the back of a spoon or a knife, spread the mustard evenly across the top of the filet only
  • With the broiler on High, place the salmon on a baking sheet and cook mustard side up for approx 6-8 minutes, or until done to your liking

Preparing the salad

  • Whilst the salmon is cooking…..
  • In a large bowl, combine all the salad ingredients and mix to ensure the vinaigrette has coated everything well
  • Note: if you dice the avocado, add it in this step, or, if you would prefer (as in the picture) leave it out, slice it and place it on top of the salad when serving
  • Plate up the salad, and place the cooked salmon on top, serve immediately

Notes

We can’t eat nightshades, so you won’t see tomato in our salads, however, if you can, the small cherry tomatoes, halved add a wonderful color and look to this salad.
You could replace salmon with chicken, the mustard works great with that too.
