Herb Roasted Salmon with Steamed Cabbage & Peas for #SundaySupper

Feb 17, 2013 by

We’ve been having so much for with our #SundaySupper  posts. We have delighted in so many wonderful themes since the start of the year. Some of which were indulgent and totally enjoyable. We are thinking about our waistline this week. This is the “Skinny” edition of #SundaySupper! Our wonderful host is Sunithi from Sue’s Nutrition Buzz. Sue is a Registered Dietician and knows all about good, healthy food! You may remember I made a salad that Sunithi made from a past #SundaySupper event to celebrate the first #SundaySupper anniversary. As always, I’m excited to see the line up. Perhaps feasting the recipes with my eyes will make my waistline appear smaller. We’ll see. :-)

For today’s recipe, I didn’t use a book or online source. I drew inspiration from a breakfast dish my Dad used to make for me. Some Saturday mornings, he would make saltfish and cabbage with boiled dumplings and green banana. Totally delicious, satisfying and good for you. But since I’m doing a skinny dish, I decided to go easy on the carbs ~ for today. As for the salmon, I just used some simple ingredients and made a quick marinade. I’ve learned that salmon doesn’t need a lot of ingredients to make it taste good. A few herbs did the trick.

I absolutely adore salmon. Roasting it is so easy and wonderful. I like mine well done with just a little crispiness at the edges. Salmon is one of the best sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acids – a perfect brain food! It is also an excellent source of protein. Salmon has a wonderful flavour that is quite distinct. It can be prepared in so many ways. I’ve steamed it in parchment, baked it, pan seared it and of course, I’ve roasted it too.

When it comes to cabbage, I will admit that I do not have it enough. It is awesome if you are trying to lose or maintain weight. Its low in calories plus it is packed with nutrients! I used a whole head of cabbage for this dish, which I realized afterwards that I didn’t need that much. Half will do. I made the appropriate adjustments in the recipe.

I’ve always loved peas. It wasn’t my intention to add the peas but I bought a few bags of organic frozen peas on sale recently, so I figured I should use it up! If I have to buy preserved vegetables, I prefer the frozen kind. Green peas are rich in vitamins and aid in the metabolism of fats, carbs and protein. I think it’s a great tasting veggie and pairs wonderfully with the cabbage.
