Smoked Salmon Salad Wraps

10-minute #snack meal: cucumber, smoked salmon, avocado & bell pepper salad wraps. Ridiculously easy meal to prep and for a quick energy pick-up! Boom.

This is one of my favorite treat meals. It is easy to make, and you can customize the recipe by adding other raw vegetables to your liking or in season. You can even replace salmon with turkey in case you are not a big fan of seafood.

All you need for this really simple recipe is 4 ingredients. Smoked salmon, cucumber, bell pepper and avocado. Remember, salmon is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, the “good” fat that your body needs to function and exercise.

Start by cutting half of the cucumber into thin slices with a mandolin. Then slice veggies into thin strips and build bite-sized wraps. Use cucumber as a base, add smoked salmon and veggies, and roll it up.

Fresh and crunchy salmon salad is perfect for a spring lunch or quick low carb dinner.

I’m thrilled at how good this smoked salmon salad recipe ​is! It’s simple, healthy and done in less than 10 minutes. Besides, salmon is one of the most nutritious foods. Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are considered essential, so you must get them from your diet because your body cannot create them. Salmon is also full of high-quality protein, another essential nutrient.

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.

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

Eating healthy does not mean you do not get to eat delicious meals. With this stuffed avocado recipe, you can enjoy a healthy meal that is packed with flavor. Avocado recipes are so versatile, you can customize them however you want with so many different ingredients. Shrimp stuffed avocados are a fresh, new, and easy to make alternative to the regular boring shrimp salad.

When it comes to this avocado stuffed recipe, you are going to need the following ingredients: ½ of a large Hass avocado, ¼ cup of organic no sodium black beans, ¼ cup of steamed corn, 2 tablespoons of pico de gallo, lime, cilantro, sea salt and pepper and some shrimp.

First things first, you need to cut your avocado in half and remove the pit. Now, remove the majority of the meat, about ¾, to create a big enough hole to fill. Get a big enough bowl and add the contents that you scooped out of your avocado. Make sure to dice the contents before you add them.

For the next step, add the black beans, corn, and pico de gallo to the bowl. Season the mix with a pinch of sea salt, pepper, cilantro and lime.

Now is the time to put the mixture back into the avocado. This stuffed avocado will definitely blow your mind with how tasty it is. With this, you can either serve shrimp on the side or you can add them to the mix and create an even tastier shrimp stuffed avocado recipe.

This shrimp stuffed recipe is a great dinner option and a good way to get those carbs in. Also, it is quite easy to prepare, taking no time from start to finish. You will most certainly fall in love with this easy shrimp stuffed avocados and with a really good reason.

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.

The first thing you’ll need is arugula. It has a slightly bitter taste and is also known as Italian cress and salad rocket. It’s a great vegetable because it’s packed with so many nutrients and antioxidants. This will surely add a kick to your meal.

 

Next, you will need some edible flowers. Some popular ones are hibiscus, lilacs, carnations, and roses. Every flower has its own unique flavor, so choose something that satisfies you and your partner’s palette. Besides this, keep in mind that not all flowers are edible and some are actually poisonous. Do enough research and source them properly, so you know which ones are safe to eat and won’t end up making anyone sick.

 

Then, you will need strawberries. These juicy little red fruits are packed with sweetness and vitamins, making it a nice ingredient to complement the rest of the dish. You can also add it to other recipes, like for a spinach or avocado salad.

 

The next ingredient is sliced almonds. These are to add a bit of crunch and serve as healthy toppings for the dish.

 

Last but certainly not least, you will need some goat cheese. Its creaminess and tanginess are sure to amplify the flavor of the other ingredients.

 

Serving

 

Top off the salad with your choice of vinaigrette, mix everything, and enjoy!

 

The flowers will be a pleasant and flavorful surprise to your partner. You can even do this to celebrate other holidays like Mother’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, or Thanksgiving. If you liked this recipe, let us know so we can make other Valentine’s day salad recipes for you to try out.

Grilled Chicken & Watermelon Salad

Today we’re going to make a great and refreshing summer salad with grilled chicken and watermelon. What I love about the watermelon salad recipe is that it’s a great challenge for all.

So, I’m gonna show you how to make your fruit salad not so boring. You are gonna trick yourself seriously into eating more vegetables and fruits than you normally would.

For the chicken recipe, it’s gonna be really simple, quick and easy, particularly helpful if you are at the place where you don’t have a grill or it’s not grilling season just yet.

You can cook chicken into a skillet. First, spray the skillet with olive oil or coconut oil. Then season the chicken breasts with 1tsp Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, Mrs. Dash. Cook them until it gets a golden brown color on each side.

I love sweet and savory combinations, so for this watermelon salad with feta or goat cheese, we will also use blueberries and spinach.

Now, take the watermelon and cut it in half. Chopp the inside of one half into cubes and pull them out to a bowl. Remove the seeds.

Cut the goat cheese into little pieces, and mix in a bowl with watermelon cubes, baby spinach, blueberries and daisy seeds.

If you ever tried any watermelon feta salad you already know the power of this refreshing combo in a hot summer. And the best thing about this salad is that it contains a lot of protein and has only 318 calories.
