This weeks Craving Ellie in My Belly is fishy…. I don’t do fishy…. Okay, that’s me exaggerating just a little bit. I eat absolutely no sea food and very little fish, I’m simply not the biggest fan. I do eat some salmon or tuna every now and then, ’cause I know it’s real healthy and good for you.
Pam of Lobster and Fishsticks
chose Salmon with Sweet & Spicy Rub and boy am I happy she did: this was an amazing dish, I will eat salmon more often now!! I loved the way the sugar and the chilipowder worked together, yum!!! Defintely another dish that I will make again! So thanks Pam for picking this one!
I decided not to make the lentil dish the salmon is normally served with, but served it with green asparagus and mashed potatoes. Instead of cooking the asparagus I went for a wonderful stirfry with red pepper, shallots and garlic. A perfect combo!! The salmon is 7 WW Points per serving, the stirfry is only 0,5 WW Points, believe it or not!
to find out what my fellow Ellie-istas thought of the sweet and spicy salmon.
The recipe for the salmon can be found over at Pam’s, here’s my recipe for the stirfry:
Asparagus stirfry (2 servings)
500 grams asparagus
1 tbsp olive oil
1 red pepper
1 clove of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Cut of the end of the asparagus, wash them and slice them into threes. Heat the olive oil in a pan at medium heat and add the asparagus. Dice the red pepper and shallots and add them to the asparagus, cook untill the red pepper and shallots are soft. Squeeze the garlic clove above the pan and cook for a bit more, add some salt and pepper to taste.
