Salmon Parcels with Cauliflower Mash,

I actually cannot believe I already have over 100 facebook fans already! The Paleo Community is brill! It has made me even more determined to be a better!

Had a bit of an indulgent weekend again (drink wise) so I have to stay in and be more settled the next few weeks. Its great not to feel bloated after a weekend of socialising. I even discouraged my fiance from going to the chippy after the pub. There's determination for you! And hangover breakfast was leftover Paleo pizza - yum but without the guilt!

I did have a little cheat yesterday in my Mum's house for dinner. I had a small amount of potatoes with dinner and apple pie. Oops. Must do better.

Anyway, here is my Salmon receipe - a firm favourite in our house from pre-Paleo days which didnt require much adaptation - so that is good news!

Ingredients per person

For Salmon:
1 x Salmon Fillet
Splash of white wine (and a slug for the chef!)
1/2 teaspoon of dried dill
1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley
1/2 spring onion
Knob of butter
1 x slice lemon
Pepper and sea salt

Create a "parcel" out of foil and place the salmon fillet in.
Add wine, onion, dill, parsley, butter, salt, pepper, and lemon in with the salmon and seal up the parcel to allow steaming. The wine and butter create a sauce which is lovely with the mash. It also stays unbelievably moist and juicy.

Place in an oven at 200C for about 15- 20 minutes or until fish is cooked through.

Mashed Cauliflower
1/2 head of cauliflower
1 tsp of garlic powder
Sea salt & pepper
Knob of butter

Steam the cauliflower for approx 10 -12 minutes until tender
Mash in a bowl with a potato masher and add butter, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix well.

Serve alongside the salmon with steamed, buttered broccoli and carrot sticks.

Enjoy :)
