Salmon Fillet With Sweet Potato & Cucumber

You ever had the feeling that you paid too much for an item after you bought it? That’s exactly the way I felt after buying some salmon filet at WholeFoods last week.  I usually get my salmon somewhere else but they are too small, I wanted thicker salmons so I settled for WholeFoods Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon fillet for $11.99 (12 oz).  They had better taste good, and boy! I do not regret the $11.99.

Fish is a healthy protein that you should eat at least 3 times a week.  The best ones to have are

  • salmon
  • mahi mahi
  • tilapia
  • flounder
  • catfish

SimpleChef will help you incorporate fish the clean eating style.  For this recipe you need

  • 4 salmon fillet
  • 2 medium sweet potato baked and diced with skin
  • 2 medium English cucumber
  • 1 tsp of white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp stevia
  • a mandolin slicer.  I’ve had the Oxo good grip one for 5 years now and swear by it.
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • salt and pepper
  • other seasoning of choice for the fillet
  • non-stick pan

Step 1: Sprinkle the salmon fillet with salt, pepper, other seasoning and let it seat for a few minutes.

Step 2: remove some of the cucumber skin and slice them into ribbon style.  Sprinkle salt and pepper over it and let it seat for a few minutes.  Spray cooking spray on your pan and heat it over medium toss in the cucumber and let it saute for 2 minutes.  Add the vinegar and salt and toss for another minute and set it aside.

Step 3: Spray some more cooking spray – 5 quick spray is 1 serving – and let it heat over medium.  Cook the salmon for 5 minutes on each side.

The entire meal should yield 4 servings divided equally and

Voila le poisson succulent!
