post-marathon munchies

If I never see another carb again, I will be a happy woman. Three days of constant eating before the run today left me grumpy and full. This evening I have finally cooked a carbohydrate free healthy supper. The last of the lovely spring greens and some salmon, oriental style.

Sesame salmon - no real need for a lot of explanation. Greased baking tray, salmon fillets, brush with honey, salt, pepper, cover with sesame seeds and a little sprinkle of chilli flakes. Bake in the oven at around 200 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.

oriental greens

1 head spring greens
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 inch grated fresh ginger
soy sauce
50 ml vegetable stock (I just make up half a cup full with a little Marigold bouillon)
tbsp sesame oil
salt and pepper

Warm the sesame oil in a wok, and fry the garlic and ginger for a few minutes.

Add the greens and a good slash of soy sauce, coat well before adding the stock, mix up again, then cover.

Steam for about five minutes.

There you have it. Fresh clean flavours ... and not a twirl of pasta in sight.
