I feel like this is less of a recipe than it is a ‘look what I had for lunch!’ There’s also a bit of ‘I did it!’ involved…
I’ve really been working hard to like fish. I AM allergic to most sea food (shellfish, etc), but I don’t seem to have much of a problem with actual fish. My only issue with it was that I grew up very near lake Ontario and when I smell fish I envision the unpleasant scenes of a rocky beach with fish remains. So its all been mental for the most part. I also struggled with the fact that fish dishes seemed to smell and taste like dead fish (what a notion…). ANYWAY, I’m happy to say I’m trying to get over my fish insecurities and have started to include this really healthy food into my diet.
If you have any suggestions as to how I can enjoy different types of fish better I’d really appreciate it! (I’ve only tried salmon at restaurants a few times and then this salad. I did make a face a few times, but I’m working on it!) Or if you know any ‘beginner’ types of fish or ways to prepare it I should know definitely pass that on! And I know that some fish are stronger than others, but I don’t know which ones. If you like fish, please tell me why …. I need motivation! :D
Fresh Salad with Salmon
1/4 can of salmon (about 2 tablespoons)
About 2 cups leafy greens (I used a spring greens mix that had sweet and bitter lettuce)
1/4 avocado, sliced and cubed
About 8 sliced small black olives
Dressing (I use an olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and poppy seed mix that I put together)
Clean the leafy greens in a drainer. Shake off access water. Chop up the avocado and olives. Throw all ingredients into a bowl and add dressing on top. Plug your nose and eat up! (I know, I’m terrible…)
