Boom! 15-minute #Salmon Stuffed Bell Peppers by the high-flying, calisthenics guru @d_stinto! This meal is easy and packs a #protein & nutrient punch, perfect for #postworkout or #dinner. Salmon has “good” fat (Omega-3) to keep you #anabolic and building muscle. It’s loaded with vitamins for muscle strength and heart health, lowering bad cholesterol. Cottage cheese is low in fat and has #casein protein which is slow digesting, helping control appetite and feed your body longer. Love this recipe!
Ingredients: 2 bell peppers, 1 onion, 2 garlic cloves, 2 large champignons, 1 tomato, smoked salmon, fresh basil and about 150g (3/4 cup) low fat cottage cheese. (Macro nutrients and calories will vary depending on how much smoked salmon is used - 6oz salmon is about 200 calories with ~35g protein, 0g carbs, 7g fat)
STEPS: (1) preheat oven to 350F (175C). (2) Dice onion, garlic, mushrooms and sautée them for 3 min at medium heat. (3) Add basil and diced tomato to mixture and add own sodium-FREE seasoning. (4) Mix cottage cheese with the sautéed ingredients. (5) Roll ingredients in salmon like a sushi roll. Continue to layer and roll until you have 2 large, thick rolls. (6) Cut tops off bell peppers and remove insides. (7) Stuff bell peppers with salmon and place in non-stick dish in the oven for 15 minutes. Boom!
