Lemony Poached Salmon & Zucchini Spaghetti


This dish is crazy quick, but to make it you are going to need a vegetable mill to make the zucchini spaghetti, I am posting a story on one possible option so if you don’t have one keep a look out to get some ideas.


Lemony Poached Salmon & Zucchini Spaghetti
Serves 1

–  1 Fresh Salmon fillet
–  100mls fish stock (of light veg)
–  knob butter (generous is good)
–  40mls cream
–  1 tbsp lemon juice
–  1 egg yolk
–  fresh parsley, a few sprigs will do


While you are milling your zucchini, put a pan on the stove.  Add the stock, butter and parsley and bring to a boil, now drop the heat to low and add your salmon fillet.  Put the lid on and poach for about 4 minutes.  Remove the salmon and set aside, keeping warm.  Bring the poaching liquor up to a boil and reduce, remove the parsley, and add the lemon juice.  Once there is only about a third of the poaching liquid left, remove the pan from the heat and add the milled zucchini and the egg and cream mixture.  Stir gently, as you would a carbonara, now add the flaked salmon back into the dish, place over a low heat for 60-seconds and serve straight away.


If you are on a diet and are finding low carb meals challenging add a generous sprinkle of raw pine nuts the pinoleic acid has been shown to lead to a sense of satiety – feeling full, and they will add a delicious crunch to the dish.
