Surf and Turf Swordfish Steak Muscle Kabobs!

Surf and Turf Muscle Kabobs! Swordfish steak & flank steak with cherry tomatoes and yellow bell peppers, with a spinach & cucumber salad with sesame vinaigrette.

For this swordfish steak recipe, you’ll need just 5 ingredients! Swordfish steak, lean flank steak, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and your choice of greens for salad.

Quick, easy and delicious!

Start by getting one swordfish steak and one lean flank steak. This should be enough fish, but you can also get more if you want to prepare a larger amount of food for the whole family or if you’re expecting guests.

When I prepare a swordfish, I like to add an aromatic taste, so I also use ginger, garlic and cumin. To get started, cut the fish into pieces. You can season to taste, but keep it simple. If you want to follow my recipe, add ginger, garlic, cumin, pepper and red pepper.

Then cut yellow bell pepper into pieces and make the kabobs.

Spray a skillet with coconut oil or olive oil. Place the kabobs and cook them on both sides so that they are equally well cooked.

Make sure the swordfish steak is cooked all the way. Now you’re ready to enjoy a tasty grilled fish meal!

Remove the kabobs from the grill, serve on a plate, and voila you have a delicious meal, rich in protein!

Amaze your friends with this unusual finger food with a specific taste that is pleasing to everyone, especially if they love fish.

I tried this specialty a couple of years ago, and I have made it many times since then because I adore that it is so light and tasty and fits into my diet plan.

Black Beans, Giant Scallops, And Brussels Sprouts Recipe

This delicious meal that features a tasty black bean recipe can be made even easier with the use of an instant pot or slow cooker. You will cut your prep time down if you make the beans beforehand, and they can easily be portioned out and frozen for weekly (or monthly) lunch and dinner plans. With brussel sprouts and tender scallops, this recipe is perfect for those after gym meals where you need to replenish your energy and protein without sacrificing your health goals.

 

Tasty black bean recipes can sometimes be hard to find but look no further. The secret is using pico de gallo, some cumin, and garlic to season it into a delightful mix. You can use dried black beans if you want to make black beans from scratch, but canned beans work too. However, dried beans may be cheaper in the long run if this is something you foresee making large amounts of at a time.

 

For sea scallops, make sure they are dry, firm, and smell like the sea. If they are shiny or wet, they are often old, and if they have a fishy smell, are way past their prime and you should skip. Make sure you don’t overcook the scallops when a quick sear will do. Scallops will shrink and be tough if you cook them for too long.

 

Depending on how you like them, you can steam or roast the brussel sprouts until they are tender and nutty. As a leafy green, brussel sprouts (which look like tiny cabbages) are an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. With these and beans at your side, it is very easy to switch up the scallops with another protein source such as beef, chicken, or fish.

Corn, Black Bean & Pico De Gallo Stuffed Avocado With Shrimp

Fried Green Tomatoes with Bison

Move on over Paula Dean, there’s a new bad boy in town and he’s not pulling any punches when it comes to breaking out the healthy but delicious versions of your favorite southern comfort food. Southern fried green tomatoes are a staple in the lower half of our country, where a crispy crust encases juicy, meaty, and tangy green tomatoes.

 

Often the result of having a late bumper crop of this popular vegetable, if you find that you have a bunch of late-season unripe tomatoes that won’t make it through the first frost, this is the recipe you can wow guests with at your next dinner party. Not only does it reduce food waste, but I’m also very excited to show you all a version that keeps special diets such as keto, paleo, and gluten-free.

 

Before we dive in, here is some advice on making the best fried green tomatoes recipe. Make sure you choose firm green tomatoes since if they’re soft, it more than likely means they have started to go bad. Choose a large shallow bowl so that it’s easy to toss the tomatoes in the breading and make sure you lay them out on some paper towels after you fry them so they stay crispy and don’t become too soggy with grease. With these tips in mind, let’s dive in!

 

Recipe Variations

Instead of bread crumbs or corn meal, Almond flour is a versatile gluten-free and grain-free breading that gives just the right amount of crisp we’re looking for. While you can mix any seasoning of your choice into the flour, in this recipe I used garlic powder, sea salt, cumin, and ground black pepper. Feel free to add smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, onion powder, Cajun or Italian seasonings. Even parmesan cheese would be a welcome addition to the breading. While you can pan fry them until they’re crispy, you can also throw them into the air fryer if you’re trying to watch your calorie intake.

 

If you’re looking for what to serve with fried green tomatoes, they are fantastic as a side dish to cubed steak, kebabs, stew and gumbo, roasted chicken, some sauteed shrimp, or other fish and seafood. In fact, they even do well as a stand-alone entree. If you want something to give it an extra kick, pairing it with a tasty dipping sauce like a spicy remoulade or cool tangy Greek tzatziki could be just the thing you’re looking for. If you have any leftovers, you can make fried green tomato sandwiches too.

Strawberry, Blueberry, Goat Cheese Mache Rosette Salad with Bison

Bison flank, strawberry, blueberry, goat cheese, and mache rosette salad. Delicious, light yet lean & mean – always a winning combo.

Remember lean bison flank is a very good protein to incorporate into your diet. Generally lower in calories & fat than beef and even chicken, high in protein, and packed with omega-3 and iron, making it a great choice! Especially for women.

Season bison with garlic, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Spray the skillet with olive oil and place the bison. Since it is so lean, I used a small amount of spray olive oil so it would not stick. Cook the bison in a skillet for 8 to 10 minutes or until the desired doneness.

For the salad, you’ll need some mache rosettes, strawberries, blueberries, and goat cheese crumble. Assemble the salad in a medium bowl or plate, putting first mache rosettes, cooked bison, and other ingredients. Add a pinch of sea salt and pepper to taste.

This combination of veggies and fruits with creamy goat cheese and any source of proteins is definitely one of the best pairings for a delicious and light spring and summer salad.

I often choose mache rosettes as one of the ingredients in my mixed salads, because of their benefits. One of them is the fact that it contains 30% more iron than spinach. Mache is also called Corn salad, lambs lettuce, and Nut lettuce, and you can find it in almost all bigger markets and whole food markets.

Also, you can adapt this recipe to your tastes, and remove, add or replace some ingredients. Instead of mache rosettes, you can add baby spinach, or you can mix both in this recipe. I believe that with this salad mozzarella cheese would be an excellent choice too. Experiment, try different combinations and find what you like best, but be sure to try this combination first.

And of course, write below in the comments how you liked the salad, and if you changed it, what you recommend us to try.

“Popcorn” & Shrimp Salad

Hey guys, welcome back to the fit men cook kitchen! Today’s recipe is really special, we are making a delicious shrimp salad.

This is a very easy and tasty salad recipe. The hardest thing for you is to determine which type of protein you want to eat. You can add chicken if you’re more chicken salad type, or you can add cooked shrimp.

There’s also a vegan option for you guys. You can easily swap out the chicken or shrimps and substitute in some roasted tempeh, tofu or roasted cauliflower.

I love chicken, but for this recipe I personally prefer shrimps. If you can’t find fresh shrimps in your store, use frozen shrimps, it’s okay. In the case you buy shrimps with shells on them, it’s very easy to remove them. Pull the main part off and remove the tail of the shell.

This shrimp salad recipe is a mix of shrimps, mache rosettes or mixed greens, avocado and popcorn. Great combo full of protein.

You will need 6oz of shrimps. Prepare them in boiling water, in an air fryer or whichever way you like the most.

Use a bowl to mix other ingredients, and toss the shrimps on the top. Garnish with some fresh herbs or how you like the most, and enjoy your meal.

This easy shrimp meal is a great recipe that should be part of every recipe book.

Low-carb Tip: Instead of using croutons on your salad, use air-popped popcorn! It has similar nutritional benefits to brown rice and will actually help you feel full. Two brands to consider using are Skinny Pop and Fit Pop.
