This is what I like to call ‘date night’ food.
It’s been a long week. You’ve eaten a lot of salad. You want to treat yo’selves, WITHOUT saying ‘sod it’ to the old diet.
We’ve got you.
What you need is something that tastes super indulgent, with a little bit of macro-wizardry going on.
Smooth, creamy, zingy sauce coating a delicious, meaty hunk of salmon.
A dinner to make you forget you’re on a diet.
The perfect date night. Brownie points: infinity.
Salmon with Creamy Lemon & Caper Sauce
- 250 g salmon fillets (125g each)
- 300 ml chicken stock (low sodium)
- 50 ml white wine
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 40 g lightest cream cheese
- 3 Tbsp capers, drained
- 1 tsp cornflour
- ground black pepper
Season your salmon generously with pepper and lemon juice, and a dash of salt (the capers are salty, so not too much here). Fry in a sauce pan along with some low-calorie cooking spray until cooked through. Transfer to foil to keep warm.
Deglaze the same pan using the stock, white wine and lemon juice.
Add the cream cheese and whisk until no lumps remain.
Whisk in the cornflour, add the capers and reduce the heat to low.
Simmer until thickened to your liking, around 3-4 minutes.
Season with plenty of pepper, before adding the meat back to the pan and coating with the sauce.
