If you’ve been studying my weblog for awhile, you recognize I’m a vast fan of cauliflower rice. As evidenced through the Pineapple Fried Cauli Rice HERE, the Cauli Rice Tabouleh I made HERE, and the Cauli Rice Paella I made HERE. See what I’m saying? Now it’s time to convey within the salmon.
While I’ve at all times grated or processed my very own cauli rice, I decided to provide Whole Foods Market’s pre grated rice a shot this week and pair it up with a few Coho Salmon I picked up for his or her One Day Sale. I can basically discuss for myself whilst I say I at all times make a large number processing it myself.
I’m leaning toward the reality that’s simply due to the very fact I’m a hot mess within the kitchen, but regardless it at all times will get everywhere. So it was refreshing to simply be capable to open the package deal deal and have recent (not frozen) cauli rice prepared for me. And yes, I nonetheless made a large number with it, but no longer almost as massive of one!
I needed to created anything easy yet nonetheless flavorful and delicious to pair with the salmon so I went the regular route of recent herbs and lemon. Because helloooo, all of us recognize recent salmon, herbs and lemon are BFFS. And now, you’ll find a way to upload cauli rice into their circle of friends. In reality I assume all of them have matching friendship bracelets now.
And for all you Whole30 fanatics, I’m pleased to assert this factor is absolutely compliant for you!
