SIMPLE SALMON SKILLET
We went camping last weekend up around Leadville, Colorado. As I was meal-planning before the trip, I knew that I wanted something super healthy and easy on the docket (which is always my goal!).
I flipped through a magazine and saw a recipe for an Asian-inspired salmon dish. It looked soooo yummy, but I wanted to put my own spin on it and make it one skillet. One skillet meals are perfect for cooking outdoors, as you can pack less, and clean less. Win win!
so, read on for our creation of a simple salmon skillet recipe...
Salmon filets, seasoned with salt & pepper
Caulifower rice (we used a pre-packaged, frozen bag, which is a great shirt-cut for camping. Bonus- since it's frozen, it'll stay cold longer in your cooler)
Annie's Organic Sesame Asian dressing
We prepped by slicing the cucumber
Cook the salmon first. Drizzle some olive oil in the skillet, season to taste, and coat with some of the Annie's dressing. Cook each side for a few minutes each. Remove from heat and set aside
Saute some of the spinach with the leftover juices/oil in the pan. We didn't cook all of it, as we reserved some of the spinach to put as a base salad layer. Remove from heat.
Add a bit more olive oil, and saute the cauli rice. We like ours just a tad crispy, so we cooked it well done.
Combine all ingredients on a plate and garnish with the sliced cucumber. Drizzle on more of the Annie's dressing.
Eat up! Preferably by a nice campfire.
This meal was sooo good, you guys! Easy, fast and oh so delicious.
Now, we did think of a few additions for next time. I think that throwing in some toasted almonds and shredded carrots would make it even better.
