Green Coconut Salmon & Cauliflower Rice from Zenbelly
After a long night of fielding comments on Facebook from folks passionately defending their stance on (and support of) gluten-free junk-food, I’m worn out. I think my favorite comment was that I supported a “nanny-state” because I felt there was too much gluten-free junk food. I’m not quite sure how that works. As most folks who follow Celiac Handbook know, I promote naturally gluten-free options for people with celiac disease or those who choose to follow a gluten-free diet for optimal health. I’m not one to say you can’t have your junk food — if you want to eat junk food, that’s your right and you should do whatever you want to do.
Moving on, here’s a recipe from a new favorite, Zenbelly. It’s yet another good example of using cauliflower in place of rice and would make a perfect dinner that I’d be willing to bet anyone would like (unless of course you don’t like fish). This is my idea of both a healthy dinner as well as a delicious dinner.
This salmon just might be the quickest dinner you make this week. The wonderful thing about it, other than being delicious, is that it doesn’t taste like you made it in under 30 minutes. This works with just about any kind of salmon, as long it’s it’s wild. Coho has a lower fat content, which balances the richness of the coconut milk nicely. Serve with cauliflower rice, and chances are this dish will make it into the weekly rotation…”
