Yummy Salad

As part of PowerCakes #PowerMealAWeek, I’m sharing my version of a Palm Beach Salad that is too legit to quit.

Palm Beach salads are skillfully layered with avocado, shrimp, crab meat topped off with eggs. My version, as you’ll see, isn’t as skillful but it’s still very delicious.

I’m sure the pros in the kitchen use some sort of sauce/dressing that helps keep the layers of yumminess intact but I didn’t worry about whipping up anything like that for this salad. That cuts back on the calories too. Winking smile

I threw everything together based on memory and it was meant to make one serving but I was surprisingly filled up quickly. I had plenty leftover.

These are your ingredients:
* About 10 shrimp
* Crab meat
* 1/4-1/3 cups tomato and avocado
* 1 diced up hard boiled egg

I cooked the shrimp with a seafood seasoning and a bit of butter. I heated the crab meat through the same way, sans the seasoning.

I prepared the tomatoes, avocado and egg in the meantime.

After the shrimp and crab meat are done, cut them up into smaller pieces. Then start layering! Layer your plate with a bed of spinach, then avocado, crab meat, tomatoes, shrimp and top it off with the egg!

Now you have this masterpiece:

Give this salad a try–unless you’re allergic to seafood, please don’t give it a try in that case. Red heart

PowerMeal A Week Round 2

This week has flown by! It’s been a crazy week for sure so I haven’t gotten a chance to post anything since last week’s PowerMeal A Week. I promised myself I’d stay up to date with these PowerMeal posts, though, so here’s this one.

It’s my preparation of flounder, and it’s a super easy meal to prepare!

To cook the frozen flounder, I used seafood seasoning and coconut oil.

You rub down the fish with coconut oil and sprinkle the seafood seasoning on it. Grill or cook on the stove top for about 10-15 minutes or until the fish is thoroughly cooked. The cuts of flounder I had were a little thicker so it took a while longer to cook fully through.

After the fish is done cooking serve it on a plate of spinach leaves and squirt some lemon juice on it for an extra kick of flavor.

I served the flounder with a side of corn but you can use any vegetable for a side! Asparagus would be delish with some fish. Oh hey, that rhymed. Open-mouthed smile

Enjoy!
