Seared Salmon with Dill

Hey guys! Its day 3 of eating healthy for me and I finished off my day with a nice piece of salmon. I don’t typically enjoy cooked fish (but I can eat sooooo much sashimi) so I like to jazz it up with mild and sharp flavours. 400 Calories

Ingredients:
Salmon (75g atlantic fillet)
1/2 cup of cooked quinoa
Spinach
Rye Cracker
1 Extra Large Egg

For the Dill Sauce:
Dill, Lemon juice, Horseradish and 1/2 tbp of butter.

Directions:

In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients for the dill sauce until it boils slightly then turn off the heat.

Sear the Salmon on each side on medium heat until it reaches the temperature you prefer (I like mine medium rare), set aside.

Poach Egg.

Place a small amount of the dill sauce ontop of the quinoa, then place the salmon ontop of that. Layer a desired amount of remaining sauce over the top of the salmon.

Place other components however you wish (sometimes I enjoy the egg directly ontop of the salmon).

Enjoy!

the after date Breakfast

the after date Breakfast

You know that moment where the person next to you expects breakfast? And here you are thinking to yourself — I guess I can slap together some scrambled eggs and cheese and make an omelette — then all of a sudden, you’re alone?

Well here is the solution! (This is also delicious if you are alone anyways)

Here is a simple, sexy way to wake up.

There are 6 ingredients to this 350 calorie breakfast.

Ingredients:
2 Eggs (per serving)
Baker’s bread (or you can use WonderBread but that’s not very sexy)
Baby Spinach (I just buy the salad, its great for multiple types of meals)
Herbs (dill, basil, oregano — you can use whatever you like)
REAL bacon bits (you can get this at a local butcher, or you can buy it from a grocer — make sure its not the artificial crap)

Fruit (figs are sexy — but oranges are just as sweet)

———————-

Directions:

1. In a non stick pan, fry the eggs together with a tiny bit of oil to prevent sticking. You can use a 250ml non stick sauce pan to make it easier (I bought mine at Walmart for $5) . While the eggs are cooking, sprinkle your herbs on top of the eggs.

2. While eggs are cooking, toast bread. I like to use a Toaster, I’m fancy.

3. Find a Clean plate and set the toast in the middle, lay the spinach on top of the toast and drizzle a tiny bit of salad dressing of your choice on the leaves.

4. Place fried eggs ontop of the spinach

5. Place bacon bits on top of the eggs

6. Slice fruit and place it around the toast as seen in the picture.

7. If you have Balsamic glaze (about $5 from the grocer for a bottle that will last you awhile) drizzle it on top of the fruit and around the plate in a circular fashion.

8. Be sexy.

And there you have it! the Sexy breakfast of Champions (and third dates)
