To make spaghetti style noodles you need a Julienne peeler. We bought a Zyliss brand—partly because it was on sale; partly because it rated highly on the ‘ease of use’ scale, and partly because our Zyliss knives are awesome! You don’t need to peel the zucchini. If you leave the peel on you’ll get more fibre in your diet and the noodles are crunchier.
If you want flatter, ribbon style noodles (similar to fettucine) you will need a Mandoline peeler/slicer—need we say we have a Zyliss.
What you need (serves 2)
2 medium zucchini
2 medium carrots
3 – 4 shallots
Coconut oil (for stir frying)
2 x salmon fillets*
Salt & ground pepper
Chinese Five Spice
What you do
Pre-heat oven to 220 degrees Celsius
Wash and slice the zucchini and carrots following the instructions on your Julienne peeler
Finely chop the shallots
Place the salmon fillets on a foil lined baking tray and place in the oven for 15 minutes
While the salmon is cooking heat two flat teaspoons of coconut oil in your frypan or wok and when the oil starts smoking add a teaspoon of soy sauce, the spices, a pinch of salt and some ground pepper, and finally the zoodles and shallots. Toss quickly in the hot oil, and keep tossing until cooked—about 6 – 8 minutes max.
Plate the zoodles and add the salmon. Sprinkle with black pepper and serve immediately.
Yum! What’s your favourite veggie recipe?
*We use fresh Tasmanian salmon from the fish market, as oppose to boxed/frozen from the supermarket freezer.
