Hey girlies! Welcome to #MondayBunday, the day of the week that we dedicate completely to our booties here at the blog!
Today I’m gonna share my favorite recipe: skinny gluten-free pasta with salmon. It’s an absolute hit around here!
My Boy loves it (and doesn’t even know it’s skinny!), the girls dig it, my parents went crazy with it and it’s all-around one of my favorite recipes because it’s easy and healthy and delicious.
I came up with this recipe after I moved in with my boyfriend. He LOVES pasta but I just don’t know how to make any good sauces. And since I wanted to surprise him one night without breaking my diet, I put my creativity to work. By chance I had a nice filet of salmon in the fridge that day and some fresh mozzarella that had to be used soon. “I’ll throw it all in!” I thought.
What came out was a delicious, healthy and light dish that contains all the macros I need for a good meal: carbs, protein and good fats. Here it goes! 👇
1 pack of gluten-free fusilli
1 salmon filet
6 ounces fresh mozzarella
2 Italian tomatoes
½ chopped onion
1 bunch arugula
½ jar capers
Extra-virgin Olive Oil
Pink Himalayan salt
Grease a baking pan with coconut oil and place the salmon fillet. Squeeze the lime over the fish and add salt and pepper to taste. Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil and bake on high for 20min. After 20 minutes, remove the foil and bake another 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut the tomatoes and mozzarella in cubes, the arugula in thick ribbons, and the onion in fine pieces. Boil water and add the pasta according to the instructions on the package. When the fusilli is al dente, drain and return to the pot. Add the mozzarella, tomatoes, arugula and onions (to taste). Add a generous amount of olive oil and mix well. Cut the salmon in pieces and throw that in as well, and finish with the capers and salt to taste. Serve with parmesan and voilà!
This pasta is delicious when eaten right away or cold the next day!
