Coconut & Macadamia Crusted Salmon

by Gilad

 

This delightful and oh-so-delicious dish is brimming with nutrients to heal and seal your gut. Salmon is high in omega-3 fatty acids to fight inflammation. Like all seafood, salmon also supplies zinc, which tends to be less well absorbed in people with digestive issues.


INGREDIENTS   serves 2

  • ½ cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 egg
  • 2 salmon fillets, bones removed
  • 1 lemon
  • Green salad leaves, to serve
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
 

DIRECTIONS 

  1. Preheat oven to 360°F (180°C)
  2. Combine macadamia nuts, coconut and a little salt and pepper in a food processor to form a rustic crumbing mixture.
  3. Beat egg in a small shallow bowl.
  4. Dip salmon fillets in egg mixture before coating thoroughly with the crumbing mixture.
  5. Transfer crumbed fillets onto a lined or greased baking tray. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until salmon is cooked to your preferred level of 'doneness'.
  6. Serve salmon with a side of green salad leaves, drizzle of olive oil and wedge of lemon.

Cauliflower Rice Recipe

by Gilad

Healthy Sides: Cilantro and Lime Cauliflower Rice 
 
 
If you haven't been fully converted to cauliflower rice yet, you need to try our Cilantro & Lime Cauliflower Rice! 

INGREDIENTS
  • ½ head of small cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic cloves
  • 1 scallions, diced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 fresh lime
  • Handful fresh chopped cilantro
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. For the cauliflower rice, roughly chop cauliflower into florets, then place cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is small and has the texture of rice or couscous.  Don't over process or it will get mushy. 
  2. In a pan over medium heat, add olive oil, scallions and garlic and sauté about 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft. 
  3. Add the cauliflower "rice" to the pan and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and place in a medium bowl and toss with fresh cilantro and lime juice.
