This simple dinner is not only delicious and super easy to make, it's also full of omega 3 healthy fats which is required for brain health and memory function, as well as preventing degenerate diseases such as Alzheimer's. Healthy fats are also required for lowering bad cholesterol levels and increasing good cholesterol for heart health.
Replacing starchy carbs with complex carbohydrates in the form of vegetables increases fibre in the diet as well as eliminating gluten. Chili flakes are great for boosting metabolism.
Method: Use a peeler to peel zucchini into long strips lengthways to create ‘spaghetti’. Put in a bowl and set aside with some sea salt.
For the pesto, place everything (except salmon) in a blender and blend until creamy. Meanwhile in a fry pan fry up some garlic and coconut oil and cook the salmon fillet for a few minutes each side until cooked through. Mix the sauce, zucchini & salmon together. Serve with goats cheese fetta on top.
These recipes come from my Grandmother who is the love and inspiration of my life and hands down, the best cook in the whole world. Some recipes I've tweaked to make into a healthier version, others I've left for you to enjoy as a treat.
