When I was diagnosed with #MCTD and Lupus and I using the #AIP protocol diet to find out what was causing my flare-ups. I quickly learned that it was very restrictive. This made it hard to find things to eat. I began to do some research and found some recipes that I will share with my readers! The first one is delicious and nutritious.
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 pound salmon
1 head broccoli, chopped
1/2 tablespoon avocado oil
sea salt, to taste
1 cup cauliflower rice, cooked
1 small avocado, sliced
1 cup red cabbage, shredded
1/2 cup carrots, shredded
2 stalks green onion, sliced
Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together.
Place the salmon in a baking dish and pour 1/4 cup of the sauce over it, then marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and grease a baking sheet with avocado oil or line it with parchment paper.
Toss the broccoli with oil and salt and place on one half of the baking sheet. Place the salmon on the other side, skin side down, and bake 15-20 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily when scratched with a fork and the broccoli is tender.
Meanwhile, make the cauliflower rice if you haven't already. Reheat it if it has gotten cold.
Divide the rice, salmon, avocado, cabbage, carrots, and green onions equally between two bowls. Serve garnished with parsley.
