Yolky Salmon Delight

There are a few movies that I love and enjoy thoroughly, but received horrible reviews. First is Country Strong. I really cannot stand Gwyneth Paltrow for a number of reasons, but one important factor is because she claims she is really good friends with Beyonce. Let’s be serious. Beyonce and Gwyneth? Definitely not on the same level. (I am so jealous.) But for some reason, I love Country Strong. It’s my go-to movie on a rainy day.

Then there is Spanglish. I have seen it numerous of times. I don’t know what it is about that movie, but I love it. In that movie, Adam Sandler plays a chef. In one of the scenes, he makes himself a great sandwich where he adds an egg, which was perfectly over easy. Every time I watch that scene, I crave a sandwich that includes an over easy egg, but I never had the balls to try it or make it. (And I don’t like sandwiches.)

I have been cleansing for over a week, and I am limited to what I can eat. When I am not eating, but juicing, I plan for my meal as if I haven’t eaten in months (even though it is for two days). My next recipe was so delicious that I am wishing I had it right now.

Ingredients you’ll need;

  • Low sodium turkey bacon
  • Quinoa
  • 2 tsp of rosemary
  • Seal salt (to taste)
  • 1 cup of diced onions
  • 1 cup of diced green peppers
  • Salmon burger (I like to get it from the fish market instead frozen)
  • 1/4 cup of diced tomatoes
  • 3 Tbsp of parsley
  • 3 Tbsp of basil
  • Olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp Low fat butter
  • 1 Tbsp of diced garlic (or to taste)
  • Red pepper flakes (to taste; not necessary)
  • 1 egg

Let’s begin;

Step 1: Pop your turkey bacon into the oven. Be sure not to cook them through. (They will be added into the quinoa later).

Marinade the salmon burger and set it aside. photo 1(8) photo 3(7) photo 4(7)Step 5: Take out the bacon.  It should be almost cooked through but not completely.  Start tearing the bacon into pieces. Be careful, it’s hot! photo 5(7)photo 1(9)Step 6: The quinoa should be cooked and the water should have evaporated.  Take the it off the heat and set the quinoa aside. photo 2(9)Step 7: In a small pan, add the salmon. Over a low-medium heat, cook the salmon.  Cover.

Saute that and make sure you are constantly tossing it around. Lastly, add the green peppers. Again, toss it around and make sure the bacon is thoroughly cooked. photo 5(8) photo 1(10) photo 4(9) photo 1(11) photo 2(11)Step 9: Here’s the fun part! Add the quinoa. Stir it in. Toss it around for a few minutes and set it aside. photo 3(10) photo 4(10)Step 10: Check on the salmon. Make sure it is cooked. We don’t want to get salmonella!

On aside:: I have really been into MØ. She’s a Danish, and is super fab. But more importantly, she did a great cover of Spice Girls’ Say You’ll Be There. I am obsessed.
