And supreme indeed it is
What a delightful dish, a total all rounder! It’s filling, nutritious, creamy, fresh, tasty and even a little cheesy.
What is it? Well it’s pretty much just salmon fillets cooked with leeks, courgettes and asparagus in a creamy, but low fat, bachamel sauce. I could of easily eaten this on its own but I did add some couscous. It really was beautiful in taste, the soft salmon against the slightly sweet sauce was a heavenly melt in the mouth affair.
It’s also a very easy dish to make, pretty much a one pot deal, in the oven, 25 minutes, bish, bosh, done!

Tonight’s dinner called for high protein (Minday night boot camp) with great taste (Just because Monday needs help to be good!) and so this tasty trout dish was on the menu.
Not only is it healthy and tasty but from start to finish it takes 25 minutes to prep and cook.
- Mix 20g butter with 1 crushed garlic cloves, 2 chopped shallots, 1 small bunch of chopped parsley and 1 tsp of Dijon mustard.
- Score the skin of 2 trouts and rub the buttery mixture in
- Peel 2 bulbs of chicory and lay on two individual baking sheets, place the fish on top of the chicory and fold the parchment into a parcel. Cook the fish parcel for 15-20 minutes in the fm oven at 180
- Meanwhile boil some broccoli florets
- Fry 2 slices of streaky bacon in 5g butter. When nearly done, add 20g pistachio nuts
- If desired, cook 100g couscous and season with salt, pepper and ginger
- When it’s all cooked, serve and enjoy
If you are not overly familiar with Trout it’s a really delicate fish with a very light and fresh taste. It’s easy to over flavour but this dish offers a beautiful mix of bitter chicory, fresh fish and creamy nuts.
Ummm ummmm ummm this sweet salmon with sticky coconut rice and fresh greens tasted soo good that I lost my ability to speak!
Easy, nutritional, healthy and quick…a fantastic post work out meal!
Simply make a marinade of:
- 1tbsp runny honey, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil
- 1tbsp grated fresh ginger
- 1 chopped garlic clove
And marinade the salmon for an hour if possible.
Boil 75g per person of basmati rice, when cooked add salt, pepper and 100ml coconut milk and cook for another 5 minutes.
Whilst the rice is cooking boil some broccoli and green beans for just 2-3 minutes, keep them fresh!
Also grill the salmon for 4 minutes each side. Then serve!
A really light but supremely flavoured dish, the garlic and ginger really zing on your tongue and the creamy rice just takes off the edge. As i said…..nom!
5 mile run with Gray done and so it’s only fair I treat myself to a delicious smoothie!
Fear not, I will not spoil my hard work, this drink is Protien packed despite tasting like a dessert.
Vanilla whey, options chocolate powder, peanut butter, banana, almond milk, fat free yoghurt
This has been my dinner for the last two nights, it has very honestly been the result of a cupboard raid based on my lack of shopping!
It’s a typical chili dip with homemade tortillas but I lacked mince
and so opted for Tuna. Why not right?
Why not indeed. It was utterly delicious and presented a big punch of Protien!
Next time you do a chili, try the tuna!!!!
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, eggs are underrated!
Whenever I am actually home for breakfast I’ll poach an egg, toast some bread and there you have it, a quick, healthy, tasty breakfast!
Hurrah to the chicken!
Today: plain and humble
Yesterday: added spice!
Last Wednesday: ketchup!
This was the starter I made for my Christmas Day lunch. It’s a salmon mouse in a smoked salmon parcel with caviar, advacado, horse radish cream and beetroot. It’s a really simple dish with a powerful taste.
The mouse was made with Creme Fraiche, smoked salmon, capers, anchovies and lemon juice. It’s simply all whizzed together and placed in ramekins lined with smoked. This is then left in the fridge to cool.
It’s a perfect starter, not to heavy and perfectly fresh.
Tonights dinner is quite simply about health. Still tasty? Of course, but it’s focus was to provide me with a nutritious protein filled plate of which I could both enjoy and benefit from.
- Cooked smoked salmon
- Baked cherry tomatoes
- Cottage cheese
- Chili beetroot
- Sweet chili sauce
A delicious guilt free dish!
Often my post consist of healthy recipes but this is a lean, mean, protein punch post!

- 1 banana or half an avocado
- 4 tbsp of low fat yoghurt
- Almond milk to crest desired consistency
- A blast of crushed ice (helps to thicken)
My variation include adding frozen berries / peanut butter / flavored yoghurt / coffee
