No meat or fish in your fridge? Running low on time? What to do?!
We suggest stopping on your way home at your local supermarket for the next best thing. When you run out of all the local, grassfed, raised right meats and fish, or when you are on your way home to a hungry family and you have no time to cook, the next best alternative is usually found in the prepared foods section of Whole Foods or Wegmans.
We found these great salmon burgers at Whole Foods that have only a few ingredients: salmon, spinach, pine nuts and feta cheese. Unlike crabcakes, these babies are free of fillers, breadcrumbs, or any other necessary ingredients.
We cooked them on the stove, flipping after a few minutes and serving right away.
Also on the stove, we steamed some strips of eggplant and florets of broccoli. We didn’t even bother to use the steamer – we just cooked them in a shallow pan with some water and a lid, until they were soft. Then, we drained the water, added a little olive oil, and sprinkled on some Italian spices ( thyme, oregano, garlic powder, black pepper) and cooked for an additional 3 minutes.
We ate the salmon and the side dish with a half of an avocado, which melted onto the salmon burgers really nicely.
Not bad, for a quick meal from the store!Posted in Recipes | Tagged Fish, Oil, Vegetables | Leave a comment
