I’m convinced that if you have good spices and a few staple items like onions, garlic, peppers and cheese, you can turn any veggie and protein into something spectacular! Last night’s dinner didn’t fall short. This fairly healthy, quick and low carb dinner was a sure crowd pleaser and it only took me about 30 minutes to prepare. Below is what I did. Keep in mind, I cook like a little old southern grandma… a pinch of this, a pinch of that, so my measurements are not exact. Definitely season to taste and use my recipe for inspiration!
3-4 Pieces of salmon
2T Mayo (add a dash of your favorite spice. I used tequila lime.)
½ cup mozzarella cheese
A few dashes of your favorite spices (I used seasoned salt, Old Bay, garlic powder and tequila lime seasoning)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray baking dish with cooking oil. Season salmon with spices; Mix cheese into seasoned mayo; spread over the top of the salmon and bake for 15 minutes.
2 large zucchini (or 4 small zucchinis)
Smoked turkey sausage
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 yellow onion
1T minced garlic
1/2 jar of Alfredo sauce
Tequila lime seasoning (or lemon pepper, if you have it)
Using a vegetable pasta maker (I have the Veggetti), cut the zucchini into noodles and set aside. In a large pan heat olive oil and then saute sausage for several minutes on medium heat. Once sausage has browned a bit, add zucchini, peppers and onions and cook until tender. *Add seasonings, garlic and Alfredo sauce. Simmer on low for about 5 minutes.
*If your zucchini produces a lot of water in the pan, pour it off before adding the final ingredients (seasonings, garlic and sauce).
