Honey and Soy Salmon

Honey and Soy Salmon with sesame cauliflower rice and beans

Salmon-and-greens may sound a little like an under-whelming “diet-dish”, but with a little splash of sesame oil in the cauliflower rice and the incredible marinade of honey and soy (which we reduce to a thick syrup while the salmon is cooking), this dish will knock your socks right off!

Serves 2

Calories per serving = 512 kCal 

Macros per serving:

  • FATS – 25.7g
    • of which saturates 4.8g
  • CARBS – 26.5g
    • of which sugars 22.8g
  • PROTEIN – 41g

Ingredients:

110g green beans
400g cauliflower rice, steamed
2 spring onions, sliced
1 tsp sesame oil
1 TB olive oil
2 TB soy sauce
2 TB honey
1 tsp garlic paste
2 fillets salmon, skin-on
1 tsp sesame seeds

Method:

  1. Cook the green beans in salted water for 4 minutes, then remove and set aside to keep warm.
  2. Combine the steamed cauliflower rice with the sliced spring onions and mix in the sesame oil. Set aside to keep warm.
  3. Combine the soy sauce, honey and garlic paste in a little bowl. Add one teaspoon of hot water and mix well. Set aside.
  4. To cook the salmon, heat the olive oil in a clean pan and add the salmon skin-side down. Grill until the skin is crispy, then flip the salmon over. Immediately pour the soy honey mixture into the pan and reduce the heat slightly. Continuously spoon the sauce over the salmon as it continues to cook. The sauce will start to reduce and thicken. By the time the sauce is thick and syrupy, the salmon should be done. Do not allow it to reduce too much, if this happens, simply add a small dash of hot water. If you like your salmon very well done, cook it for longer in the pan before adding the sauce.
  5. Serve the cooked salmon over the cauliflower rice, with the green beans on the side and scatter over the sesame seeds. The dish requires no seasoning.

Grilled Calamari Salad

Grilled squid is a great option for a lean, protein to add to a salad. Prepping and cooking it probably takes quicker than opening and seasoning a can of tuna (and so much more interesting). There is no fancy dressing needed – as with all seafood, you simply need a good quality olive oil, salt and the all-important freshly squeezed lemon. The addition of red peppers adds a lovely roasted dimension to the salad. We suggested to use any salad leaves of your choice, but rocket is a great option and should feature in your salad leaf mix.

Serves 2

Calories per serving = 343 kCal 

Macros per serving:

  • FATS – 24.3g
    • of which saturates 4.2g
  • CARBS – 5.3g
    • of which sugars 2.8g
  • PROTEIN – 24.4g

Ingredients:

4 large squid tubes, defrosted if frozen
2 tsp olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups salad leaves of your choice
½ avocado, peeled and sliced
45g roasted red pepper, thinly sliced (from a jar)
2 TB olive oil, to drizzle
sea salt flakes
lemon wedges

Method:

  1. Lay the defrosted squid on a tray lined with kitchen paper and pat as dry as you can with additional kitchen paper. Slice each squid one in half lengthways (top to bottom), and open it up, patting the inside dry as well. Use a sharp knife to lightly score a criss-cross on the side that was the inner side. You should have 8 pieces.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pan and place the pieces of squid into the hot pan. Fry on both sides until lightly golden, this only takes about 1-2 minutes. You may need to do this in 2 batches, else the pan will become overcrowded and the squid will just simmer and not grill golden.
  3. Remove the cooked squid (which would have curled up) and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. To assemble the salad, simply combine the salad leaves, sliced avocado and thinly sliced roasted red peppers. Add the calamari and drizzle olive oil over the salad. Season with sea salt flakes and serve with lemon wedges which should be generously squeezed over the salad.

Smashed Avocado on Toasted Microwave Egg Bread

A scrumptious and satisfying breakfast where the ‘bread’ can be made ahead of time (and even frozen!) It’s important to mention that the Tupperware dish we used was an 11cm x 11cm lunchbox dish – simply perfect to mimic sandwich size. Try and get as close as you can to this. While these slices freeze perfectly, we don’t advise doubling the recipe if you want more yield – instead make separate batches inside the microwave to ensure thorough cooking. It’s worth it because this is a game-changer for those doing keto!

Serves 2

Calories per serving = 251 kCal

Macros per serving:

  • FATS – 20.6g
    • of which saturates 3.4g
  • CARBS – 3.9g
    • of which sugars 2.8g
  • PROTEIN – 9.5g

Ingredients:

For the ‘bread’
4 TB almond flour
2 TB ground flax seed
1 tsp baking powder
pinch cayenne pepper
¼ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp mustard powder
2 eggs, lightly beaten
salt and freshly ground black pepper

To finish the dish
½ avocado
salt and freshly ground black pepper
¼ lemon
2 slices of Microwave Bread
1 tsp olive oil
1 large tomato, sliced
handful salad cress or washed sprouts

Method:

  1. Combine all the ingredients to make the ‘bread’ in a small bowl. Grease a small microwave-friendly dish (see the head note for tips on size) and spoon the contents in. Cook on high in the microwave for 90 seconds, then remove. Tip the solid mass out onto a chopping board and allow to cool. Once cooled, turn the mass on its side and slice into 3 slices. Set aside.
  2. Roughly crush half the avocado in a bowl using the back of a fork. Season with salt and pepper and squeeze a lemon into the mixture.
  3. To finish the dish, heat the olive oil in a small pan and lightly fry two slices of microwave bread until toasted on both sides. Remove, then lay the slices of tomato on each and top with the avocado mixture. Garnish with the salad cress.

Tropical Fruit Salad with Yogurt and Nuts

Select an exotic mix of fruit and make sure the yogurt is fat-free. Play around with different chopped nuts and dried fruit, and you have the perfect crunchy topping. It’s such a sweet deal, you may not even need the honey drizzled at the end.

Gazpacho

Gazpacho is a chilled soup originating in Spain and an ideal low-calorie summer meal appealing to vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. It is dead-simple to make (with the added advantage that you make it in advance) and its fresh flavours simply cannot be beaten.

Apple, Fennel and Parmesan Salad with Chicken

With BBQ season upon us, it’s likely you may be looking for great, healthy ideas for side dishes. This fresh, crunchy salad has a lovely, subtle liquorice flavour thanks to the fennel, and this pairs well with the sweetness of apples. We have topped it off with shavings of Parmesan, adding the perfect salty bite. We added the option of having this as a light meal / lunch, adding a grilled chicken breast – which is a great idea if there is salad leftover from the BBQ. (Macros for both options are below.)

Serves 5-6 as a side dish

Calories per serving = 189 kCal

Macros per serving:

  • FATS – 13.9g
    • of which saturates 3.8g
  • CARBS – 8.8g
    • of which sugars 8.8g
  • PROTEIN – 5.3g

Ingredients:

juice from ½ lemon
2 Granny Smith apples
2 fennel bulbs
½ stick celery
2 TB apple cider vinegar
4 TB olive oil
salt and pepper
handful rocket leaves
60g Parmesan shavings
½ cup pomegranate seeds

Method:

  1. Squeeze the lemon half into a large mixing bowl. Core the apples and cut into matchstick-thin pieces. Add to the bowl and toss in the lemon juice to avoid discolouring.
  2. Finely slice the fennel, or use a mandolin if you have one and add to the apples. Wash and slice the celery and add to the bowl.
  3. Whisk the apple cider vinegar and the olive together in a small bowl, season with salt and pepper and add to the salad, tossing it well to coat. Add the rocket and tip into a large salad bowl.
  4. Use a small knife to shave off 60g from a block of Parmesan and add to the salad, along with the pomegranate seeds.

………………………………………………………………………..

With added chicken:

If you are having this salad as a light lunch for one person (with addition of chicken), simply divide the recipe above by four. Season 1 deboned, skinless chicken breast with salt and pepper and heat 1 teaspoon oil in a frying pan. Grill the chicken for several minutes on both sides until the chicken has sufficiently cooked through. Slice and add to the salad.

Kale and Banana Smoothie

Smoothies are the bomb! They contain more fibre than a juice, and the addition of fat-free yogurt makes it a satisfying post-workout snack. The banana is a wonderful fruit to use in smoothies as the flavour is strong enough to hide a bitter vegetable like kale.
