Hey guys! 👍🏼
I’m sorry to point out the fact that it’s a pretty dull and wet day out there today – I’m sure you’re all squinting behind the shutters with anticipation, so there, bad news done and dusted. 😝
On the other hand, however, this means that it could be a weekend for you to finally take a go at that meal prep you’ve been meaning to get around to again and again. 😊 I know I already have a few meal prep posts up on the blog, but as long as ideas and foodie creativity flows, there will never be an end to the amount of them that I, or any other food blogger, can do. 😃
This post keeps it simple – but the end product is no less delicious than the high standard I know ye deserve. 😉 With the above in mind, and the realisation that my post lack in support for the pescatarian diet, I’ve come up with the simple and amazing smoked salmon stir fry! It really only takes a few minutes and you’ll be intrigued by how a few simple steps can lead to something so tasty. Oh, and healthy…think of all the fibre, protein and Omega-3’s. 😏
- A fresh, prepackaged stir-dry which is widely available throughout supermarkets. Otherwise, you can make your own by throwing whatever veggies you like. Suggestions
– Baby sweetcorn
– Unsteamed broccoli florets
– Red, green or yellow bell peppers
– Spring onion
– Water chestnuts
– Red or white (stronger taste)
– Slices carrots
– Crushed garlic cloves (approx. 2, don’t overdo it 😉 )
– Spinach (sounds unusual, but it’s always a great addition)
- Uncooked smoked salmon slices which are pretty much available everywhere. If you have a selection, try to go for an option with the least amount of sugar and salt preservatives)
- Dark soy sauce
- Rapeseed oil
- Buckwheat noodles
- Handful of Walnuts
- Potatoes, approx. 3 medium (depends how much you like homemade chips)
- Cayenne pepper
- Salt, pepper
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Peel the potatoes and chop them up into nice chunky chip sizes. Add a dollop of rapeseed oil to the bottom of two cooking trays, disperse using some kitchen paper and add the chips. Drizzle some rapeseed oil (good source of Omega-3, vitamin E and high in monounsaturated fats) on top of them, followed by a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. Cook for approx. 35 mins or until they’re all golden brown on the outside and fully cooked on the inside.
- Barely cover the top surface of the buckwheat noodles in a medium-sized saucepan with some boiling water and cook them off for approx. 20 mins or whatever your particular brand recommends. When ready, strain off any excess water and leave aside for now.
- Add a little rapeseed oil to a large cooking pan over medium heat. When the oil becomes hot and runny, add in your stir-fry selection. Place a lid on top of the pan to allow the veggies to cook through more quickly ; take it off frequently to stir. After approx. 5 mins, add a drizzle of both soy sauce and more rapeseed oil. Chop up the smoked salmon slices and tumble them into the veggies.
- Stir around, place lid on the pan for 2 ins and repeat until all veggies are tender and the salmon has all become a light pink colour.
- Into Tupperware containers, (I filled up 2 large ones) add the noodles, homemade chips, top with the salmon stir fry, some wall nuts and add on another drizzle of soy sauce. Salt and pepper to taste.
