Cauliflower "Rice"

  1. Cut cauliflower into florets and place in food processor bowl; pulse until finely chopped (resembling rice). Transfer to medium bowl.
  2. Drain and rinse hominy, then place in same food processor bowl; pulse until finely chopped and stir into cauliflower.
  3. Preheat large sauté pan on medium 2–3 minutes. Place cauliflower mixture in pan and coat with spray; cook and stir 3–4 minutes or until tender. Remove pan from heat; stir in cheese and chives. Serve.

Spiced Salmon with Mango Salsa

  1. Preheat grill (or grill pan). Peel mango and cut into 1/4-inch cubes (1 cup). Chop onion (2 tablespoons) and cilantro. Squeeze limes for juice (1 1/2 tablespoons). Combine mangos, onions, cilantro, lime juice, agave, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  2. Combine all spices and remaining salt. Cut salmon into 4 equal pieces. Coat both sides of salmon with spray and spice mixture (wash hands). Place salmon on grill (or in grill pan); grill 3–4 minutes on each side and until flesh is opaque and flakes easily. Serve mango salsa over fish.
  3. Note: To bake, preheat oven to 400°F and bake salmon 8–10 minutes until flesh is opaque and flakes easily. Always check fish for bones and cook to an internal temperature of 145°F.

Apron's advice

Complete your meal with fresh salad blend and sugar-free pudding for dessert.

Choose fresh sockeye salmon during late summer months. During other times of the year, you can use fresh coho or frozen sockeye salmon.
