Quarantine Cooking: Avocado Alfredo with Salmon

Quarantine Cooking: Avocado Alfredo with Salmon

Ingredients for 3 servings

* Optional Substitution Note

  • 1 cup wheat orzo (NOTE:  1 cup yields 2 cups but I only used 1 1/4 cups for the recipe)
  • 1 cup steamed cauliflower rice
  • Alfredo “milk” sauce
    • 1/4 avocado
    • 1 1/4 cups (unsweetened) almond milk
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 2 tablespoons diced onion (or small shallot)
    • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 20oz salmon fillets (separated by 4 salmon fillets ~5oz each)
  • pinch of sea salt and pepper
  • spray olive oil
  • 1 cup grated or shaved parmesan
  • 8 pieces chopped sun-dried tomato (in olive oil)
  • 1 1/2 cups raw spinach


Step 1

Prepare orzo according to instructions given on the package. Once the orzo has finished cooking, fold in steamed cauliflower rice. Set aside.

Step 2

In a blender, add ingredients for the Alfredo milk sauce and blend until smooth. Set aside.

Step 3

Set a nonstick skillet on HIGH heat. Add a pinch of sea salt and pepper to the salmon fillets. Once the skillet is hot, spray with olive oil, then , add the salmon fillets skin-side up. Sear for 3 minutes, then flip to sear for an additional 2 minutes. It’s ok if the salmon is not cooked all the way through. Remove the fillets from the skillet and set aside.

Step 4

Decrease the heat in the skillet to low-medium and add the tomatoes. Cook for 2 minutes until fragrant. Pour in the Alfredo milk and immediately stir.

Step 5

Add the parmesan and quickly (and continuously) stir so the cheese is distributed and does not clump. Reduce the heat if the sauce is bubbling.

Step 6

Add the spinach and stir until it wilts. Once it wilts into the sauce, add the salmon fillets back to the sauce and continue to cook for 6 to 8 minutes, until the salmon is cooked through.

Step 7

Enjoy with your choice of grains, pasta or cauliflower rice. I ate mine with wheat orzo mixed with cauliflower rice.
