Cauliflower Mash

I’m a bit obsessed with cauliflower. I mean I could literally just eat a whole head of it raw.

Is that strange?

Probably.

But anyway, since it has looked so amazing at the farmers market, we’ve gotten it the last few times and the other night, Ryan created a cauliflower mash with it that was absolutely amazing.

So because I’m cauliflower obsessed and this was a super delicious meal of Wild Caught Salmon steak and Cauliflower Mash, I wanted to share the recipe! (Maybe I should call this the Un-American meat and potatoes…even though I do like grass-fed steak and mashed potatoes…)

Salmon Steak and Cauliflower Mash

I’m pretty sure I’ll never make a living as a food photographer.

Ingredients:
Salmon:
2 Salmon Steaks
1/2 tbsp Paprika
2 tsp cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
Cauliflower Mash:
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp diced garlic
1/2 tbsp dill
1 tbsp cream
3/4 head cauliflower
Salt and pepper to taste

For Salmon Steaks:

Sprinkle with spices and then sear in a skillet (with 1 tbsp olive oil) on high heat for 1-2 minute each side. Then lower temperature to medium/low and cook to medium/medium rare. About 8-10 minutes.

Cauliflower Mash:

Steam cauliflower until soft. When you transfer the cauliflower to the food processor, try to get rid of all extra water first. Put into a food processor with butter, garlic, dill, cream and salt and pepper. Blend until everything is mixed and there are no cauliflower chunks.

Then serve steak and mash together. If you are like Ryan, you may even enjoy a bit of hot sauce on your cauliflower mash!

The salmon steaks made one portion for each of us, but the cauliflower mash actually made about four servings…however, it was so good (and low-calorie) that we ended up consuming all four portions! (YUM!)

What random food do you love to consume…like raw cauliflower?

Also, since I’m into self-experimentation and have actually tried a number of the diets on Free the Animal’s list (and happen to agree with his findings), I thought it was interesting to share. What diet have you found to be most effective?

  1. Two thumbs up! I like califlower as well…..but i don’t think as much as you LOL

  2. I really want a food processor. So many cool recipes i see need them. Maybe Santa will bring me one.

  3. I’ve never really been a fan of cauliflower. I don’t like it raw so I don’t really eat it cooked. This sounds really good and healthy though so I think I will try this next week and see what I think. I’ll let you know how it goes 😀
