Salmon Cakes and Coconut Cream Sauce

Salmon Cake in a Coconut Cream Sauce

Salmon Cake in a Coconut Cream Sauce

I am always a week ahead of the game in terms of figuring out what to eat. First, I head to the freezer to see what I have to work with and Salmon is on the menu. Not to mention that I also have about 6 cans of coconut milk. The thought of putting a Basil Coconut Cream sauce on top is very exciting and mouth watering. I had a basic idea of how to make a salmon cake, but I wanted to see if I could add something to it so that it’s interesting. I came across this Cajun Salmon recipe that I used and it was extremely tasty. I served the salmon cake over a bed of steamed broccoli and spaghetti zucchini. This is one healthy, satisfying meal!

Spaghetti Squash with Red Sauce

Week 7 of Paleo Eating!

It looks like I have fallen behind on my weekly post.  I am in the process of changing my blog to include a few more things such as videos, articles and more pictures so stay tuned.

Eating Paleo is still getting easier by the week.  Sometimes I dream of one of my fancy grill cheese sandwiches or my baked whole wheat spaghetti and basil meatballs.  Actually I could still make this!  If I say it out loud it is possible.  I was focusing on how crunchy the spaghetti gets when it is baked.  Time to snap out of it.

Spaghetti Squash with Red Sauce:

Ingredients (Organic when possible)

  • 1 medium Spaghetti Squash
  • 2 Turkey Chorizo Sausages, remove the casing
  • 1 medium zucchini, rough chop
  • 1 Green Pepper, or another color, rough chop
  • 1 Yellow Onion, rough chop
  • 1 28oz can of Diced Tomatoes + 1 14oz, no salt
  • 1 small Fennel Bulb, rough chop
  • 2 Garlic Clover, minced
  • Optional: Sea Salt and Red Pepper
  • 4 tablespoons of Olive Oil

There are two ways, that I know of, to prepare spaghetti squash.  First, cut the squash lengthwise.  I typically use a glass loaf dish and fill 1/2 the dish with water and place the cut side down in the water.  Put it in the microwave for about 5 to 6 minutes, until the squash is soft.  Scrap the seeds out and scrap the squash into a dish.  The second way is to make slits in the squash all over and place in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  Remove it from the oven and let it cool.  You will need to slice lengthwise as well and scrap the seeds out and the spaghetti into a dish and set aside.
