Salmon and Roasted Cauliflower

Dinner is served!

Salmon…it's what's for dinner! My best friend, and fellow Holistic Nutritionist, puts it simply: "

Eating fatty fish (such as salmon or sardines) 2-3 times per week is the best way to boost your Omega 3’s. Omega 3’s are a special type of anti-inflammatory fat, that most people are deficient in.

Did you know that you can only get Omega 3’s from the diet? Unlike other nutrients that our body can make, we need dietary sources of Omega 3’s. 

You might have heard of Omega 3 or fish oil supplements to get this nutrient, but the best source is going to be your food." (Find her amazing salmon burger recipe here!).

This recipe of mine is simple. 

Gather:

  • 2 small heads or 1 large head cauliflower
  • 1.5Tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
  • Turmeric, garlic powder, pink himalayan salt,  
  • Large filet *wild salmon 
  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • Whole avocado
  • 2 lemons
  • Nutritional yeast, tahini, organic dijon mustard, coconut aminos or organic low sodium tamari

Do this:

  • Rinse and chop cauliflower into bite-sized florets
  • Melt coconut oil over low heat
  • Toss florets in oil and spices until evenly coated
  • Spread out on a  baking sheet and roast at 350 until tender and crispy

 

  • Bake salmon at 350 for 15 minutes or until cooked through

 

  • Rinse and chop romaine lettuce
  • Mix 1Tbsp nutritional yeast, 1Tbsp tahini, 1Tbsp coconut aminos or tamari, spices and 2Tbsp water together (or enough water to make the dressing pourable)
  • Dice avocado and toss it with lettuce in the dressing
  • Serve salmon atop the salad and serve the warm, roasted cauliflower on the side

 

  • ENJOY (the most important step ;) )
