Aside from my living arrangement, I just do not really enjoy cooking because it takes far too much of my time. Can I cook? Sure but I would rather not and when I do, I prefer things that are simple. I found this recipe on my FatSecret App and it is actually a simple no brainer that doesn’t take a lot of time or attention. It is low in carbs, high in protein and gives you a good dose of omega 3’s. I would suggest using a lettuce cup aka two big pieces of lettuce head, raddicio if you like something somewhat bitter but uber healthy or you can use a big stalk of your favourite greens for the bun. You can of course just eat this on its own with a knife and fork and side of veggies too but it is kind of nice to eat it like a burger 🙂 Add some pickles (if you’re not watching your sodium intake :p, tomatoes for the lycopene which is actually better absorbed with the fat from the salmon, some hot sauce and BAM delish. If you cook the salmon just right it gets a little crunch to it and if you are anything like me who craves crunchy at times, this is a nice treat. Enjoy!
