Salmon With Garlicky Zucchini Noodles

Ingredients:

  • 4 salmon pieces (32oz.)
  • 5 medium zucchini (about 5 cups)
  • 1 lemon, zested and sliced into wheels
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp red pepper chili flakes
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • Flaky sea salt, for garnish
  • Lemon zest, for garnish
  • Zero-calorie nonstick cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Season salmon with salt and pepper; set aside.
  2. Trim one end of each zucchini and insert into a spiralizer. Turn to create noodles. If noodles are very long, cut them to approximately 7”.
  3. Place noodles in a colander and remove excess moisture from zucchini. Pat dry with paper towels and set aside.
  4. Spray a large oven-proof skillet with zero-calorie nonstick cooking spray. Sear salmon on each side for 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and let rest.
  5. In the same skillet, add lemon slices and sauté quickly to deglaze the pan. Add garlic, chili, and noodles. Stir fry for 3-5 minutes until garlic is cooked and noodles are al dente.
  6. Serve salmon on bed of noodles and garnish with parsley, flaky salt, and pinch of lemon zest.
