1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper (optional)
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice

BLANCHed ZOODLES 


Fill a pot 3/4 of the way full of water. Add a generous pinch of salt (roughly 1 tablespoon) — the rule of thumb is that the water should be salty like the ocean. Bring the water to boil. Add the zoodles to the pot and cook just until their green color deepens, about three minutes. Drain the zoodles.  Serve.

Mini Salmon Croquettes

 

Ingredients


 1 lb Wild-Caught Salmon, skinless
 1 1/2 cups Almond Meal, divided
 1 Egg
 1 T fresh Chives, minced
 2 Garlic cloves, minced
 1 t Lemon zest
 1/2 t Sea Salt


Instructions


Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Lightly grease a pan with olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add salmon and cook for 5 minutes each side or until fully cooked. Shred the salmon using a fork in a mixing bowl.
Add 1 cup of the almond meal, egg, chives, garlic, lemon zest and sea salt. Form the mixture into golf ball-sized croquettes.


 Roll in the remaining 1/2 cup almond meal and place on prepared sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, and serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.

 

 

How to Make Almond Meal


Making homemade almond meal is so easy! It requires just 1 ingredient, 1 blender, and 5 minutes. Simply add raw almonds (with skin on) to a blender and blitz until a fine, powdery flour is achieved. I like to turn the blender on the highest setting for 5-10 seconds, then stop, shake, and hit the sides to see if any clumps have formed. Then blend again until fine and powdery. You’ll know you’ve gone too far if it starts turning to almond butter or clumping up on the sides.  Not only is it simple to make, but homemade almond meal tastes fresher and is usually more cost-effective than buying it at the store.
