5 minute meal, salad, sauce, and seafood

I like something light and fresh in the evening, and in the summer I try to put together meals that I don’t require a pot or a flame. This one’s really fast, and really fresh.

 

5 minute meal, with salad, sauce, and seafood!

serves two!

 

For the salad:

Start with prewashed salad greens, 2 cups per person. Get them as fresh as you can, I love romaine for this, but any green will work.

 

For the sauce:

This sauce is like a cross between french and ranch dressing, in my opinion. Super fast to make with lots of swaps if you don’t have something on hand. It makes about 1 cup and is almost thick enough for a dip.

1/2 cup cashews, or hemp hearts, or brazil nuts
1/2 cup fresh red ripe tomato
1 small handful fresh basil, or dill, or chives
1 clove garlic
2 T extra virgin olive oil
2 T white balsamic vinegar, or 1 T apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp sea salt

  • blend everything together just enough so it is creamy but not quite smooth

 

For the seafood:

OK – I know grabbing fish out of a can is not the most glamorous way to finish off a meal, but this is a really good quality, tasty, sustainably grown fish in a BPA free can.

5 minute meal - salad, sauce, seafood 350When you have all the ingredients assembled, put a couple of cups of salad greens on a plate, arrange half the herring fillets as artfully as you can, and then scatter spoonfuls of thick dressing across the salad.

 

Done!

 

Unless you want to add some freshly ground pepper and a sprig of fresh dill or fennel, and a wedge of lemon to the plate. Then it might take 6 minutes!
