Salmon With Spiralized Zucchini Recipe

Every nutritionist and healthy eating expert I know or follow on social media all agree that the best way to make sure we eat well is to prepare our own meals. But, if you’re like me, you can come up with plenty of excuses to avoid the kitchen.


What can I say, it’s not my favorite hobby!  But lately and because I know these nutritionists are right, I’ve been making an effort. Using a blender, woks, learning about new herbs and spices, and finding easy-to-cook recipes that don’t take much time (20 minutes or less) are all helping to increase my confidence in the kitchen.


Quick and Healthy Recipes

Quick and healthy recipes use healthy ingredients and take cooking shortcuts like adding fresh ingredients to pre-made meals, doing food prep, and spiralizing vegetables. As a new approach to cooking, quick and healthy recipes are helping me stick to my commitment to make more of my meals.


This salmon and zucchini noodle recipe is one of the new go-to dishes that I like to make. It’s quick and easy to prepare and so delicious.


Salmon with Spiralized Zucchini

Healthy? Yup! And with prep and cook time totaling 20 minutes, this recipe fits the Quick and Healthy criteria for cooks who don't like to cook.

  • 1-2 salmon fillets
  • 2 zucchini spiralized
  • 3 tbsp butter or coconut cream
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic (or 1 tbsp pre-minced garlic)
  • 1/2 tbsp juice of lemon
  • 1/2 packet of green curry marinade
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce of your choice (we used Sriracha)
  1. Thoroughly season salmon fillets on all sides with salt and pepper

  2. Heat butter in a large skillet and add the salmon to the skillet, skin side first. Cook for 2-4 minutes on each side – depending on thickness.

  3. Add 1/2 or a whole packet of Green Indian Curry marinade to the mix and cook for another 4 minutes.

  4. Remove from stove and in a bowl or plate containing the spiralized zucchini noodles, pour the sauce over the raw noodles and allow the heat from the mixture to “cook” the zucchini noodles for about a minute.

  5. Eat and enjoy!


Note: Zucchini tends to render some water when cooking, so you can sprinkle salt after spiralizing and allow to sit for a couple of minutes to drain off excess water.
