The veggies were PACKED with flavor!!!!
SALMON W/AVOCADO SALSA
They say now that we should eat salmon once a week to benefit from it. And, as we know avocados are good for us too!!!! I like to pan sautee my salmon in a little olive oil on high heat to sear both sides, then finish in oven.
Make some Guacamole but leave the avocados really chunky.
Place a mound of mesclun lettuce that has been tossed with some balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil. Place salmon on top of that and then spoon some guacamole on top of salmon. Great meal/salad combination.
TUNA W/BLACK BEAN COULIS TOPPED WITH SALSA
Grill tuna your favorite way - I like mine medium rare.
Cook some black beans with all those good black bean flavorings i.e., a couple dried chili peppers, some carrots, shallots, cilantro, cumin, lots of lime juice...
Make some salsa - tomatoes, fresh cilantro, red or spring onion, lime juice, jalapeno, salt and pepper.
Mix some low fat or no fat sour cream with some buttermilk to thin and add lots of minced then smooshed garlic. Put this in a squeeze bottle.
1. Puree some of the black beans and ladle on bottom of plate to completely cover bottom.
2. Place tuna in middle of plate.
3. Mound some fresh salsa on tuna so it cascades down the side.
4. Take squeeze bottle and scribble sour cream mixture on top.
See how you like these!! I'm listening to Diana Krall right now, deciding what it is telling me to cook!!!!!! - me thinks a picnic with finger foods in front of the fireplace!
