Simple Salmon with PB Sauce & Cauli Rice

Not a sponsored post but the recipe will be featured in the Daily Mail in the UK at some point…or so I’m told!

Simple and perfectly cooked salmon, no funny “white stuff” on the surface aka albumin, served with a delicious speedy peanut butter sauce atop a mighty bed of completely hassle free cauliflower rice. When I don’t feel like making a mess or know I’ll have to make dinner in a hurry I reach for a pack of Cauli Rice!

Yes cauliflower rice is easy to make but blitzing raw cauliflower in the food processor is sometimes more hassle than it’s worth and I’d never be able to replicate the consistency of the Cauli Rice. Finely diced pieces of cauliflower, partially cooked so that all it needs is 2 and 1/2 minutes in the microwave and you’re good to go.

I have been known to eat it straight from the packet which is a delicious way to get in your veggies on the move! I find it so much easier to find protein on the move, but veggies are a whole different kettle of fish. Raw veg just isn’t appealing, especially as we enter into the colder months. The Cauli Rice is a perfect half way house!

Believe it or not I’m actually yet to try the other flavours. I like to stick with plain and simple ingredients giving me the option to spruce them up whichever way I please depending on my mood. I also love using the Cauli Rice as a base for my n’oatmeal bowl….new variation on the way next week ! It’s soft yet provides a bit of structure and substance without an overpowering taste.

Now that I’ve introduced white rice back in to my diet of a high carb day I wasn’t sure if I’d end up eating less has been a dietary staple for quite some time! Slightly less perhaps, or at least until I discovered Cauli Rice! I just wish it was a little cheaper but more often than not I find some reason to treat myself to the hassle free luxury item. I justify the price with the time, and potential stress saving having it in my possession can create!

This meal comes together in a jiffy. You don’t have to brine the salmon but I love the final finish, no icky white bits on the surface and I think brining it lends itself to a nicer texture. It could be in my mind?!? I think it helps it to stay soft and supple.

The sauce is my new go to with just about everything. Made with either peanut flour or peanut butter, both work equally as well. If using peanut butter use Meridian Foods all natural unsalted smooth, and for peanut flour I use Sukrin!

What’s your favourite meal to whip up in a hurry? Do you have any go to time saving staples?

  9. The majority of repair providers might also visit home on the manager and endeavor to measure the impaired or breaking down item then and there, not having taking the idea away. Quite a few products can be set immediately through a little alter on the fuel or perhaps a pose of the insert, while some could need a long time to renovate and will eventually has to be delivered to the actual repair facility. I can agree, most repair facilities utter a judgment the exact repair quickly which enable it to revisit an item when its willing to preserve the particular owner effort. Auto repairs and this can be undertaken on the spot carry less than one or two hours a long time and the user will use this product once the repairman states that so. Repairmen might also pinpoint your own home thing will be repaired or may prefer to changed.
