Poached Salmon with Zucchini ‘Noodles’

Years ago I purchased a small hand-held vegetable spiral
cutter. After using it a couple of times, I decided it was more trouble than it
was worth, so into the back of the cupboard it went. Eventually, it was
donated.
My new OXO Spiralizer
All of a sudden, ‘spiralizing’ vegetables has become the
RAGE! Recipes for spiralized you-name-it, are popping up all over social media,
in blogs, cookbooks, and so on. Heck, even our local Italian restaurant offers
spiralized zucchini in place of spaghetti! The last time we dined there, I substituted the spahghetti with the zucchini ‘noodles’ with my meal and enjoyed it immensely.

I thought long-and-hard about ordering another spiralizer,
and decided, why not. One click on Amazon, and 2 days later my tabletop gadget
arrived. This time, I got a spiffy model (hey, I deserve it!). It adheres to my
counter top beautifully, cranks easily, and produces a mountain of curly, verrrrry long strands of goodness.

Poached Salmon with Zucchini ‘Noodles’
When it came time to prepare dinner the other night I didn’t have a
particular recipe in mind, but here’s what I made – poached salmon with a side
of sautéed zucchini ‘noodles’.

I made spirals out of 2 medium-sized zucchini and quickly
sautéed them in a large-enough skillet with just a splash of olive oil and a dash of salt and pepper. For added flavor, I sprinkled on a bit of Parmesan cheese.


The skinless salmon filet was seasoned with salt and pepper
and poached in white wine with a squeeze of lemon juice. Dried dill was
sprinkled on top just before serving. In no time, we had a quick, satisfying, and
delicious meal!

What’s next with the spiralizer? I’ll be experimenting with sweet potatoes!
