Salmon and Spaghetti Squash

Salmon Deliciousness

Well hello there! Today I’m back with a super delicious recipe that is just to die for – at least I thought so anyways. Salmon and spaghetti squash! This is perfect for those of us who come back late from the gym or work and are in a bind to get a quick nutritious meal in (thanks Steph for teaching me how to cook the squash in the microwave!). The entire meal takes around 30 minutes. I hope you guys enjoy it.

Salmon

  • Hawaiian Sea Salt
  • Dill Weed
  • Parsley Flakes
  • Fresh Ground Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar

Sauce

  • 1 cup tomato paste
  • 4 tbsp organic diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • Splash of:
    • Red wine
    • Balsamic vinegar
    • Olive oil
  • Minced garlic to taste

Spaghetti

  • 1 Spaghetti Squash

1. Turn the broiler on HI.

2. Sprinkle the dry ingredients on both sides of the salmon. Then coat the salmon on both sides with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

3. Place the salmon in the broiler and flip over to the other side every 8 minutes. Do this 3 or 4 times (or until the salmon is cooked – you know it is cooked when it stop looking slimy).

4. Puncture holes in the spaghetti squash with a knife or a fork (just like you would a baked potato) and place in the microwave for 15 minutes. **Be careful when you take the squash out of the microwave, make sure to not grab it with bare hands.** When the squash is ready it will feel soft.

5. In a small pan mix together all the sauce ingredients over low-medium heat. Stir periodically until the sauce starts bubbling then turn the heat all the way down.

6. When cooked, slice the squash in half and remove all the guts and seed in the center (darker looking part in the center..).

6. After de-gutting the squash use a spoon to ‘peel’ out the insides of the squash. The squash should come out easily and resemble strings or spaghetti noodles.

7. Pour the sauce over the noodles and serve with the broiled salmon.

That’s it – easy enough right? As always, if you have any questions feel free to ask. Please continue to check the blog and follow it. Tell your friends about it and get them to follow it too. Last week’s Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes seemed to make a lot of people happy over the weekend; I hope this does the same for you.  Good night!
