Salmon, Pepper & Courgette Stir Fry

Itโ€™s 2019 and Iโ€™m on another healthy eating kick! ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ This time I really do feel that I can make it part of my lifestyle. I am (for the most part) already dairy and gluten free so now just trying to cut back on the booze and make more healthy choices! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

That being said I was trying to think of different ways to cook the standard meat and veg in my diet and I came up with this recipe for Salmon (one of my favourite fish to eat).

This recipe is a mash up of a few ones I have tried in the past but I hadnโ€™t tried any with salmon in them so thought Iโ€™d give it a go and Iโ€™m very happy with how they turned out! I substituted courgette for onions to make it FODMAP friendly and itโ€™s yum (even if I do say so myself! ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Ingredients

Serves: 4

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons runny honey
  • 1 tablespoon chopped ginger (I use the frozen pre-chopped kind)
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 2 salmon fillets cut into pieces
  • 2 courgettes cut into pieces
  • 2 red/yellow peppers cut into pieces

Directions:

In a large bowl whisk together the coconut oil, honey, ginger and black pepper. Reserved a small amount of the mixture for the end.

Put the oil mixture in a hot skillet and add the salmon cubes. Cook for 3-4 minutes then add the courgette pieces. Cook for 2-3 minutes and then add your pepper pieces.

Mix all together and cook for 5 min or until the peppers start to soften and the salmon is cooked through. You will see quite a bit of liquid in the pan at this stage. Drain the liquid and then flash fry for 1-2 minutes with the remaining mixture (that you put aside earlier) and serve.
