Sooo not Mundane

Ah, Monday is over. Today was full of work but its good to be caught up, for now. My husband says its national procrastination week so he gets some slack. I think thats such a load of crapola! I hate procrastinating, it just makes me anxious. James on the other hand, is Mr. Procrastination so I guess it evens out. haha!
Well, time to fix up some grub. We usually grab a bite at whole foods after church on Sunday so on Monday I am refreshed in the kitchen. Plus we actually have groceries!

Raspberry Wasabi Salmon with Wakame noodles.
Sauce:
1-2 tbsp raspberry Jam
1tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp oil (olive or coconut)
2-3 tsp wasabi powder
1-2 tbsp water
black pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then pour over salmon with extra oil and a vinegar.
Throw in some veggies (like cauliflower) and bake at 425F for 20-25 minutes depending on how thick your salmon fillets are.


Noodles:


Cook as directed then drain, throw back in pot and add some tahini butter and greens to saute.


Voila. A Salmon Noodle Success! The noodles are mostly made from wakame (seaweed vegetable) and brown rice and therefore gluten free!



So, how do you like your Mondays? Ease on into it or play catch up right away?
Cheers,
LC

I get them at our local grocery store actually. They have pumpkin and sweet potatoe ones too! SO yum! I think they are at whole foods though or you might check another natural grocery store.

Looks delish! I'm intrigued by those noodles as well. What are the nutrition stats like (although I'm assuming pretty good, haha)? Thanks!

Lindsay Cotter said...

Julia, Those noodles have very similar stats to Quiona. Thats why I liked them. Higher protein and fiber than most grains. Gotta love that!
