OK so this recipe is the easiest recipe in the world. I purchased everything for it at Trader Joe’s. And when I say everything, I mean the three main ingredients it takes to make it to your plate. Get to it, and make this Sesame Salmon with Zoodles.
I started with the salmon. I cut a larger filet in two. I seasoned it with salt and pepper then seared it in a little bit of olive oil, skin side up.
Then, I cooked it for approximately 4 minutes then turned it skin side down and cooked for an additional 3 to 4 minutes. I removed it from the pan, sprinkled it with fresh lemon juice and sesame seeds then I let it rest.
While the salmon was cooking, I washed the zucchini and cut the ends off. I placed the zucchini in my spiralizer and got myself some zoodles.
I placed the zoodles in a large saute pan with a touch of olive oil and cooked them for 4-5 minutes. These babies cook super fast. Turn the heat off, then add the Carrot Ginger Miso Dressing and toss everything together until the zoodles are evenly coated.
Use a deep dish or bowl to plate this meal as the zoodles release quite a bit of water and so does the dressing.
This is a beautiful, clean, healthy and super quick dinner. I hope you enjoy it.
