Seared Salmon Oatmeal Bowl

Healthy savoury oatmeal bowl with seared salmon. Make the oats extra creamy and delicious by adding a few tablespoons of all-natural cashew butter!

Hello peeps! How has your weekend been? Mine was fantastic, got some work done, spent a lovely night with my girlfriends on Saturday and smashed an awesome workout this morning.

Sorry I have been a bit MIA recently and haven’t posted new recipes for a while, but being in Shanghai for a few weeks, between my crazy work schedule, meeting up with friends and well, allocating some time to sleep and eat, I haven’t had much free time.

However, the other day I got around and made a super simple post-workout meal for myself. Just my beloved high-fibre oatmeal served with a filet of seared salmon. This time, however, I changed a bit my standard oat recipe making it extra creamy by adding a few tablespoons of Relicious all natural cashew butter.

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 50 g rolled oats
  • 50 g wheat bran
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp all natural cashew butter
  • 2 fillets of wild salmon (200 g each)
  • Himalayan salt and ground black pepper
  • Mixed sprouts
  • Water as needed

In a saucepan place the oats, wheat bran, ground flax and chia seeds.

Cover with water, bring to a simmer and cook on low for about 15 min, or until nice and creamy

Stir in a few tablespoons of cashew butter until everything is nice and combined.

Heat up a skillet, add the salmon fillets, season with salt and pepper and cook for 3 min, flip on the other side and cook for 2-3 more minutes.

Divide the oatmeal between 2 plates, add one salmon fillet per serving and decorate with some mixed sprouts.

Serve it up and enjoy!

Love
