Coris Creations - Salmon Burger Atop Veggies
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 ╝ 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 sautÚ. Pour a little more olive oil on so it doesn't seem 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.
