So this may not be a great HCG recipe, but I just made it up for dinner tonight and it was sooo good. And it's quite healthy for you, so say the guys from "Eat this, Not that."
Salmon with ginger-soy butter, sauteed mushrooms and onions in a lemon-grape-seed oil sauce with Quinoa.
For the salmon:
Salt and Pepper
For the ginger-soy butter:
2TBS. unsalted butter, softened
1/2TBS fresh-grated ginger
1/2TBS low-sodium soy sauce
1/2TBS chopped chives
juice of one lemon
1pkg Cremini mushrooms, halved
1 onion, diced
Juice of 2 lemons
1. Combine butter, soy sauce, ginger, chives and lemon juice. Cover and set aside.
2. Sprinkle Salmon filets with salt and pepper on both sides.
3. Drizzle about 2TBS olive oil into large skillet and when hot, add onions. Allow to soften and then add the mushrooms, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Sautee for about 2 minutes, then move to the sides of the pan, making a hot spot. Add the salmon filets to the hot spot.
4. Flip filets once to brown both sides and let cook through. Once cooked, drizzle a bit of grape-seed oil over them, and then add a spoonful of the butter mixture.
Cook Quinoa according to package directions and place 2 spoonfuls onto a plate. Top with Salmon filet and serve mushrooms to the side.
Super yummy!! I especially love the mushrooms. And did you know Quinoa is one of the MOST healthy carbs you can eat? It has so much protein and other vitamins and nutrients it is so good for you!! It's actually really good too!! It's a new favorite in my home!
