Roasted Salmon with Chargrilled Courgettes
Created by Jake’s Kitchen for Phantom Apparel
A great post-workout snack that balances fantastic flavours whilst being quick and easy to prepare. Don't worry if you don't have a grill pan, you can use a normal grill or even a toaster to prepare this easy going fix!
- 2 Salmon Fillets
- 2 Courgettes
- 1 Lemon
- Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper
Starting with your courgettes, peel lengthways into strips. Only peel down to the core, as you can save the core and use it as the base for a vegetable soup or something similar. Preheat a chargrill pan and cook the courgette strips until you can see the grill marks. I find it's best to cook them in batches so that each one is in contact with the pan. Once they're charred, drizzle with olive oil, lemon zest, and salt and pepper.
For the salmon, place on greaseproof paper on a baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to fire up your tastebuds. Roast in a preheated oven for about 5-6 minutes.
"Cooking has been a big part of my life since leaving university almost 17 years ago. I’ve never really seen it as a job, more a passion which I am fortunate enough to earn an income from. Knowing how to cook has also been so useful when it comes to my other passion - exercise.
I’m not obsessive about it but I know that I feel much better after I’ve done some, not just physically but mentally too. And it’s always been easier if I am eating well. I don’t like diets or fasts, but just try to apply a bit of common sense. Nothing is off limits, but I do pay attention to what I’m eating ands its usually easy to tell if something is doing more harm than good. Moderation is the key!
Life can be super busy so for me its all about being able to prepare food which is delicious, uncomplicated, and most importantly quick, but without compromising on health. I’m lucky that my background in food has helped me build up a bit of knowledge which I can use when cooking for myself and my family, and I'm pleased to share it with you through the Phantom Apparel brand."
