I have another Diabetic Friendly Dish to pass along, Salmon With Cilantro-Lime Salsa. This dish is made using Salmon Fillets, Salt, Pepper, Spices, Olive Oil, Cilantro-Lime Salsa, Garlic Clove, Cherry Tomatoes and more! The Dish 214 calories and 3 net carbs per serving. And you can find this recipe at the Diabetes Self Management website where you can find a huge selection of Diabetic Friendly Recipes, Diabetes News, Diabetes Management Tips, and more!

Salmon With Cilantro-Lime Salsa
If you crave a hot, delicious, low-carb lunch, her Salmon With Cilantro Lime Salsa is for you.

Ingredients
Preparation time: 10 to 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10 to 15 minute.

Salmon
6-8 ounces skin-on salmon (2 fillets)
1/4 teaspoon each kosher salt and pepper (mixed together)
1/2 teaspoon each chili powder, garlic powder and paprika (mixed together)
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Cilantro-Lime Salsa
1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon of lime juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic clove
1/4 cup of quartered cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon of diced red onion
1/2 tablespoon of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions
Yield: 2 servings
Serving size: 1 fillet

1. Combine first six ingredients for Cilantro-Lime Salsa in a bowl. Add salt and pepper mixture to taste. Set aside or place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

2. Pat the salmon skin dry with a paper towel. This step is necessary for a nice, crispy skin. Season the skin with half of your salt and pepper mix.

3. Season the flesh side of the salmon with the salt and pepper mix and the chili powder, garlic powder and paprika mix.

4. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

5. Once the oil is shimmering, place the salmon skin-side down; hold down for 10 to 15 seconds until it relaxes and lies flat.

6. Cook for about 5 minutes over medium-high heat before flipping over. If you feel resistance as you try to flip the salmon, let it cook a couple of minutes longer. Tip: You should be able to slide the spatula relatively easily under the fish when getting ready to flip it.

7. Turn down the heat, flip to the flesh side and let it cook over medium heat for about 3 to 5 minutes, until golden brown. Depending on the thickness of the salmon, you may want to cook it a little longer or less.

8. The fish should be opaque (pink) when done. Test for doneness by slightly cutting open the thickest part of the salmon. If it flakes, you’re done!

9. Serve the salmon topped with the Cilantro-Lime Salsa and your choice of side.

Today’s Menu: Tri-Tip Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

To start this morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Very windy with rain showers in the morning. 51degrees and cloudy for the afternoon. Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Later I wiped down the entire house with Clorox Disinfectant Wipes and sprayed Lysol Spray. The house is clean! Not much else going on today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Tri-Tip Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

Mom had been wanting to try Omaha Steaks for some time and I finally broke down and purchased a few types for us. I purchased a Fully Cooked Pot Roast, Omaha Steaks Burgers, and Fully Cooked Tri-Tip Sandwich Steaks. We are having the Fully Cooked Tri-Tip Sandwich Steaks for Dinner tonight for the second time. And Yes, I’m having Beef again!

They come frozen, 6 – 4 oz. Steaks per box. So I got 2 of the Tri-Tips and sat them in the fridge overnight to thaw. They come Seasoned and fully cooked, nice size Tri-Tips. So all I have to is heat them up, and ready to serve! I grabbed a Cast Iron Skillet added a little of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated the Skillet on medium heat. With the Skillet heated I added the Steaks. Cooked the Steaks until they heated up, flipping them once.

As the Steaks were cooking I heated up some Mushrooms, for a topping for the Steaks. I heated those up in a small Skillet. So I’ll be serving them on a Kroger 100% Whole Wheat Hoagie Roll. I love these Hoagie Buns, they are always so fresh! Topped the Steaks with some of the Sauteed Mushrooms. These Steaks are so good! Excellent Seasoning, Tender, and just flat out Delicious! I’m glad Mom wanted to try them, great choice Mom! These are the most Tender Beef Steaks I have ever had, makes me want Beef a bit more!

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.
