Recipe for Friday!




I recently met up with my friend Morgan Neese at Bahama Breeze to discuss her wedding invitations, which will be so fun to design and very elegant with her vintage theme and grey, pink and white color palette! I enjoyed catching up with her and absolutely LOVE Bahama Breeze. It makes me want to be in the Caribbean so so bad! I spotted a specialty on the lunch menu called Pan-Seared Salmon Pasta and decided later to do my best to recreate it. I also had it with Pineapple-Orange juice like the one I enjoyed in the photo above! Here's my version of the recipe, as healthy as possible!

Passion Fruit Salmon Pasta
Whole Wheat penne (I made the whole box since I was making if for two and for leftovers)
Baby Bella Mushrooms, sliced
1.5 c Fresh Spinach, chopped
3-4 Sprigs Fresh Basil, chopped
2 Salmon fillets

Marinate the salmon lightly with lemon juice and soy sauce, bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. Cut into strips when cooked.
Boil penne in salted water. In a separate pan, bring equal amounts of worcestershire sauce and water to a boil and add mushrooms. Let the mushrooms boil for about five minutes then cover and simmer while the pasta cooks. Drain both the mushrooms and pasta and add in spinach, basil and salmon. Toss with the cream sauce and enjoy!

Passion fruit cream sauce
I really had to improvise here! I wanted the sauce to be as healthy as possible and still have a good creamy consistency. You really have to play around with this! I had to adjust these amounts according to taste, but once you get it the way you like it, it's tasty!
1.5-2 c Goat Cheese
1/2 container of Plain, non-fat Greek Yogurt
1/2 c Tropical fruit juice (I used Ceres brand and made sure passion fruit was in the juice)

Melt goat cheese and stir in Greek Yogurt. Add in the fruit juice to thin out the sauce, but enough to have the flavor! Add more goat cheese to thicken if needed.

Pineapple-Orange Juice
Equal parts orange and pineapple juices
Pour over lots of ice so it's nice and cold! Add a slice of pineapple to enjoy after!

Enjoy and Happy Weekend to all. Congrats, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!
It's also World Wish Day for Make A Wish! Find a way to get involved, it's a blessing.
