Lunch for one: Salmon courghetti (AIP)

Who needs pasta when there is courghetti!

I am in love with courgette spaghetti a.k.a. courghetti (courgette spaghetti). Courghetti is the base of my solitary lunches these days and the variations are never ending so I never get bored with it. This time I made my bowl exciting with steamed salmon and freshly sprouted radish. Simple yet impressive.

To make this tasty noodle bowl you will need (serves one):
3 young courgettes, barely any seeds in them
1 tbsp olive oil, plus more for dressing
a handful of radishes
freshly chopped flat leaf parsley, to taste
1/2 lime
1 salmon fillet, steamed and cooled down (leftover is great here), so it is firm
a handful of radish sprouts

1. Rinse the courgettes and cut off the ends, cut them in half (broadwise) if they are not straight to make spiralizing easier. Spiralize the prepared courgette halves.
2. Put the courghetti into a wide pan, add 1 tbsp olive oil and gently warm it up on medium-low heat. This shouldn't take longer than 3 to 5 mins.
3. Rinse the radishes, cut off the ends and thinly slice. Break the steamed salmon fillets into smaller pieces. Chop the parsley. Thinly slice the courgette endings what is left on the spiralizer.
4. Take the courghetti off the heat, add the thinly sliced radish and courgettes, the salmon pieces and the chopped parsley. Gently toss them together.
5. Drizzle with the lime juice and some olive oil. Ready to serve. Garnish with the radish sprouts. Enjoy!
