#healthycooking: Zuchinni noodles with pistacchio pesto and pan seared salmon


It was the “clean the fridge out” kinda day and I wanted to make something really light as I have a fitness evaluation today. I grabbed the latest issue of the “Clean Eating” magazine and ran into this recipe. It took less than 10 minutes to make and I am definitely saving it as a staple. Delicious, clean and light – YUM!


INGREDIENTS (serves 2):

1/4 cup shelled unsalted pistachio

1/2 cup basil plus more for garnish

1 lemon

1 zucchini, sliced with a spiral slicer or shaved with a mandolin

1 carrot, juliened

2 bulbs of garlic

1/2 avocado

1/2 tsp olive oil

salt, pepper

2 salmon filets

10 cherry tomatoes, halved

2 cups of fresh greens ( I used baby kale mix)



Heat up a non stick pan and sear the salmon. Squeeze juice of half of a lemon on top of the fillet, sprinkle with salt and pepper and place on a plate.

In the meantime, in a food processor whizz the pistachio, salt, pepper, juice of half of a lemon, garlic, 1/2 cup of basil, avocado, oil and 2 tsp water. Combine well.

Mix the greens, carrot, tomatoes and the zucchini in a bowl, top with the pesto and give it a good stir to coat the veggies.

Garnish with extra basil and serve.
