Pepper Curry Salmon topped with Sautéed Cabbage and Caramelized Onions and a side of Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Not only is salmon incredibly healthy for you by promoting joints and heart health, improving the brain and memory, and reducing inflammation, but it’s also an easy option for quick dinners. It doesn’t take long to cook at all, which is another reason I love it. I’m all about that “fast food” ~ and I ain’t referring to junk! ~ LOL 🙂

We also know that it’s important to eat at least two servings of seafood a week as part of a balanced diet — because taking fish oil in pill form is not the same as eating the real thing.

Cabbage too is another incredibly healthy food! It is good for the brain and is useful in the treatment of neural disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. The various other nutrients present in cabbage, such as vitamin-E, keep the skin, eyes and hair healthy. The calcium, magnesium, and potassium found in cabbage is very useful for a wide range of healh benefits. Just so many reasons to eat it.

Sweet potatoes…YES! I have mad love for this root vegetable. It can be cooked so many way but since I love French fries so much…why not make a healthier sweet potato {baked} version. They pack a powerful nutritional punch. They have got over 400% of your daily needs for vitamin A in one medium spud, as well as loads of fiber and potassium. They have got more grams of natural sugars than regular potato but more overall nutrients with fewer calories.  🙂 #YUM

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 Alaskan wild caught salmon fillets, skin on or off
  • 1 tbsp. Curry powder
  • 1 small organic red onion or ½ large organic onion (chopped or cut into 1” slices)
  • 2 large organic sweet potatoes (sliced length-wise into approx. 3”long fries)
  • 4 tbsp. Olive oil (additional for cooking)
  • Salt/pepper to taste

 

 INSTRUCTIONS

For the fries:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (or a large oven safe dish) and lightly grease it with olive oil or a coconut non-stick spray.
  3. In a large bowl, toss sweet potatoes with just enough olive oil to coat.
  4. Sprinkle them with some sea salt.
  5. Spread sweet potatoes in single layer on prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake until tender and golden brown, turning occasionally, about 20 minutes.
  7. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

For the salmon:

  1. In a pan, add the oil and salmon fillets (skin side down).
  2. Sprinkle the fillets with salt, pepper and fresh curry powder.
  3. Cook over medium-high heat for approx. 6 minutes.
  4. Flip each fillet and cook an additional 5 minutes, or until fish flakes easily (you can flip another time back to skin side down and cook more if needed).

For the cabbage:

  1. In a pan over medium heat add some olive oil, then the onions and cabbage.
  2. Sauté until the onions start to caramelize stirring regularly; the cabbage will cook alongside the onions.
  3. Add some salt and pepper to taste and serve hot.
