Mesquite Wild Caught Salmon Salad, it's what's for lunch!
Looking for a quick and relatively easy lunch to keep on track? Try this: go to your supermarket and buy some flash frozen (FF), frozen at sea (FAS) fish. I got some wild caught Alaskan Salmon (I've read that the omegas make it, if flash frozen at sea). Toss it into a pan with a little bit of grapeseed or coconut oil and season to your liking, I used a mesquite seasoning here just to mix it up a bit. Cook for aboub 3-5 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the piece you buy and the way you like your fish. While the fish is cooking throw a handful of mixed greens into a bowl, top with your favorite oil and some seasoning (think garlic, basil, cumin, whatever you like), some seeds (I used pumpkin seeds), crushed walnuts (i use just a touch), a sprinkling of ground flaxseed and sliced cucumber. Toss the salad. When the fish is done cooking place on top of salad. Now, I made this kind of boring and colorless: you could certainly jazz this up a bit by adding sliced tomatoes, fruit of some type, etc, but I wanted to keep it simple.
