There’s nothing more fun then being creative with food and eating healthy at the same time. I had bought frozen salmon burgers to just keep in the freezer for a quick, easy meal. An easy way to eat a salmon burger is to eat it like a regular hamburger, but since I like to get creative, I experimented a little.
You can either buy the frozen salmon burgers or you can make your own. I haven’t attempted that yet but plan on it. I’m not that crazy about the frozen ones , could be the brand though. Ok on to creating. (serving based on 1 person)
Now the veggies can be switched if you don’t like something you can replace it with something else or just leave it out.
1 salmon burger
sliced onion ( use as much or little as you like)
half a red pepper sliced in long thin pieces
half a yellow pepper sliced in long thin pieces
about a ¼ cup of broccoli
grated parmesan cheese
In a small pan cook the salmon burger. After it’s cooked take off the heat and sprinkle some shredded mozzarella cheese on top. Then cover the pan for a few minutes so the cheese melts on top of it.
In another pan heat some olive oil on medium heat. Put in sliced onions, peppers and broccoli and sauté. Pour a little more olive oil on so it doesn’ tseem dry. I add a little bit of salt for flavor, you can use no salt or any other seasoning to your liking. Keep mixing the veggies so they don’t burn, and cook for about 5 to 8 minutes. I like the veggies a little crunchy with the salmon burger so I don’t cook them too long. Spread veggies on a plate, put a little more olive oil over them and then sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top. Place the salmon burger on top of the veggies and dig in !
You get your protein with the salmon burger, your carbohydrates with your veggies, protein and fat with the cheeses and more healthy fat with the olive oil. It’s a well rounded meal; satisfying, healthy and delicious.
What better way to change your style of eating to a more healthy way then to be creative, enjoy experimenting. Smile your way into a better eating style for yourself.
