so I got another joke for y’all today
what do you call a fish with no eyes
whatup guys and welcome back to the fit men cook kitchen and listen I know a
lot of y’all are still on your
summertime fine grind trying to shed a
few extra water weight pounds for the
beach or for that event you coming up
you know before care I got you covered
today we are making a very tasty grilled
salmon with a low-carb salsa accompanied
by a coconut cauliflower rice yes you
heard me correctly it is a mouthful and
also it is packed with tons of flavor
let’s get started oh all right so the
first thing we’re gonna do is make our
low-carb salsa this is a low carb recipe
but it’s also very keto friendly now the
only fruit we are gonna use though we’re
gonna use the juice from this ruby red
grapefruit to help to flavor the salsa
we’re also gonna be using some colorful
bell peppers they’ve got great flavor
but not a lot of heat to them and
instead of tomatoes we’re going to be
using a cucumber a little bit of lime
juice some lime zest and some heat with
some jalapenos
chop everything up dice it up pretty
finely here’s my preferred way to chop
up a bell pepper top of it the bottom of
it slice it down the middle and then
roll your knife around the inside this
part comes out very easily and then all
you have to do is slice it into really
fine pieces and they’re much more
uniform this way this is the hardest
part of the entire recipe is chopping up
everything but it’s also the most
therapeutic I find you can do half a
cucumber or you can do the whole
cucumber it’s up to you now I like to go
over mine one more time and just do a
nice rough chop and then for the
jalapeno you can just slice it down in
the middle and the most important thing
is that after you chop up your jalapenos
or anything spicy go and wash your hands
yellow told me hundreds of times as I’m
doing the videos I’ll go and do this I
put in my eye or something enough the
video like this because my eyes burning
as far as the avocado you can actually
cut this fresh on the day that you’re
going to eat your meal you don’t have to
add it to it right now
because it will Brown a little bit so I
like just to cut this up fresh and add
it to my meal so we’re gonna put this
one aside for right now but this is
ready to go
let’s put this into a bowl and mix
everything together under these
beautiful colors chopped open our ruby
red grapefruit and if you don’t like
grapefruit you can also use lime I just
impartial to Texas with red grapefruit
you can add a little bit of sourness
with some lime as well and this is a
pretty Hardy salsa so I’m just gonna add
just maybe a tablespoon of olive oil
some sea salt I got it dad in that time
it caught it it caught the forearm mmm
and some pepper
fold everything together you can smell a
lot of the pepper from the bell peppers
now one of the final ingredients you can
add to your salsa is some fresh cilantro
and I would just pull off the leaves
we’re just gonna do a rough chop of
these and fold this into the salsa we’re
gonna cover this up and set this aside
in the fridge for the next part of the
recipe we’re gonna be making some
coconut cauliflower rice now you can
actually buy a whole head of cauliflower
put that into a food processor and
create your own rice but now a lot of
grocery stores Kroger is where I shop
they actually have their own cauliflower
rice and cauliflower pearls so you could
actually buy it frozen you could buy it
fresh this is the fresh version of it
and it’s just a great time-saver for in
the kitchen especially whenever you’re
doing meal prep remember the most
important thing is you don’t want to
monopolize your entire day here in the
kitchen trying to do stuff I’m gonna
spray the skillet with a little bit of
olive oil I’m gonna add in some onion I
love that sound and I’m gonna add in
some garlic and I’m going to give this a
quick stir I’m actually not going to
cook this down by itself I’m actually
gonna add in the rice and the pearls
right now I’m gonna dump the pearls
right on in there and what I want to do
is create a little bit of steam we’re
gonna create some steam by adding in a
little bit of lime and also just a
little bit of water this is about three
ounces of water once I mix everything
together I’m gonna fold in all of the
onion and the garlic pop the top on this
and let this steam for a few minutes all
right so this has been steaming for
about three minutes I think it’s ready
because it’s slightly translucent it’s
not as vibrantly white as it was before
so now we’re gonna add two things we’re
gonna add some lime zest and we’re also
gonna add the coconut milk and we’re
gonna bring this to a light simmer and
just allow the coconut milk to evaporate
I wish you’re here to smell this because
I smell straight-up coconut now and then
some beautiful cilantro to hold
everything together five more minutes of
just simmering on its own then you
should be done with this part of the
recipe and you can move on to the salmon
or you can cook the salmon concurrently
alright guys so the last part of the
recipe is just the salmon we’re gonna
keep it really simple here you can jazz
this up if you want to I like to just
put some sea salt and learn a little bit
of pepper we don’t want to over cook the
salmon at all so what we’re gonna be
doing is just searing it on both sides
I’m gonna lightly spray the pan with
some olive oil just gonna add our
fillets in here we’re gonna do them in a
nice diagonal fashion sear this on both
sides for about three to five minutes
and you know what’s ready to flip
whenever you see the discoloration so
you see it beginning to cook so now
we’re just going to flip this over and
we want to get us a nice sear on this
side as well yeah
so now we’re gonna bring it all together
and add in our coconut rice look how
beautiful that is adding a piece of our
cook salmon yeah top it off with our low
carb very tasty salsa that is the
grapefruit juice yeah this is our salmon
and coconut cauliflower rice milk prep
with a low carb salsa tell me that you
would not eat that every day of the week
favorite part of this is always the
taste test we got so many flavors here
and it’s very very very succulent very
moist and I’d love this low carb salsa
on a mouthful so go I know that y’all
are going to love this recipe this is a
really simple one that can be made even
easier if you are multitasking in the
