Zesty Salmon Vegetable Salsa
I usually have a busy Monday. Since I took this year off to finish the novel I have been writing I only work a couple of days a week, Monday being one of them. It is late when I get home and at the moment it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere so it is cold. I usually need to make a meal in a hurry before I reach for the energy laden junk food.
I am about to give you one of the quickest meals you will ever make. The best part is that it is also one of the most amazing in flavour and also very healthy. It is so simple I won’t even give you a traditional recipe.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED – Sweet Potato or Pumpkin, a mixture of green vegetables (my usual – Broccoli, Zucchini, Peas), chunky fillet of smoked Salmon – not sliced (I usually use about a 90gram piece for 1 person), Lime, Salt and Pepper, Coconut Oil and fresh basil to garnish.
KITCHEN UTENSILS – 1 saucepan and lid, strainer , Citrus squeezer
FIRSTLY – Fill a saucepan and boil some water. While you are waiting for the water to boil, peel and slice the sweet potato and /or pumpkin into cubes. Carefully drop them into the water. Continue chopping any other vegetables you are using in to bite size pieces (not too small). Turn off the hot plate immediately (leaving the saucepan on the hotplate) and drop the rest of the vegetables into the still simmering water. Squeeze the lime into a small jug.
The veggies only need a couple of minutes sitting in the water and can now be drained. Once they are drained drop them into a bowl then crumble the salmon through the vegetables. Add the Salt, Pepper, Lime Juice, Coconut Oil and Basil. All you need to do then is turn it all through a couple of times and serve.
Voila, this is amazing and takes under 10 minutes to make, Enjoy !
