I used to go to Fast & Furious on Lovers Lane in Dallas all the time when I worked in that area and missed it so much! I found this recipe in my Practical Paleo cookbook, switched it up a bit, and it almost gave me the same joy as one of those bowls! haha.
Salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids as well as B vitamins, potassium, selenium, and anti-oxidants.
Instead of rice, I used shredded cauliflower - which is much lower in calories and easier to digest! Cauliflower is also a great source of vitamin C & K and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Did you know that avocados have even more potassium than in bananas? They are also loaded with healthy monounsaturated fatty acids that help with inflammation and healthy cholesterol levels. They are a great source of fiber as well.
2 (6-ounce) wild salmon fillets
2 cups organic arugula
1 head organic cauliflower
2-4 tbsp coconut aminos
1 organic avocado, sliced
1/2 organic mango, sliced (optional)
1 tbsp avocado oil
Spice blend for the salmon fillets:
1/2 tbsp ground oregano
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp onion powder
1 tsp dried ground rosemary
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/3 tsp black pepper
First, make the cauliflower rice. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
Roughly chop up the head of cauliflower and then dice it up in a food processor until it becomes a "rice-like" consistency. Spread out on a lined baking sheet, pour the avocado oil over the top and bake for 14 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool.
Pat down the salmon fillets with paper towels and season with the spice blend above.
Turn on the oven to the broil setting.
Heat up a skillet on high heat and place the salmon skin side down and sear for 2 minutes.
Then, place the salmon under the broiler for about 4 minutes, until the salmon is opaque. If using a cast iron skillet, you can transfer it straight into the oven!
Put the cauliflower rice and arugula on a plate and set the salmon on top.
Garnish with the avocado and mango slices (if using). Pour the coconut aminos over it all and enjoy!
