I am a Pinterest fanatic and majority of the recipes I've posted on my blog, were found perusing the mighty app. I usually never site the source, because I too am a cook. I only look at recipes for inspiration and I then go to work, making it my own.
Souvlaki is Greek and simply means "tender cuts of meat on a skewer." While in Athens Greece, I found that it also referenced a kind of meal, such as pita or just a meat skewer plate and a side of grilled veggies, topped with tzatziki sauce. When I saw a recipe online, I automatically could taste the various fresh flavors and knew I had to replicate it!
This Salmon Souvlaki bowl is a flavor bomb in your mouth and the perfect healthy date night meal.
Here's what you'll need...
For the Bowl:
- 2 Salmon Fillets, Wild Caught
- 1 Zucchini, sliced
- 3 Garlic Cloves
- 1 Cucumbers, sliced
- 1 Shallot, sliced
- 2 Red Bell Peppers, sliced
- 1 c Mushrooms, sliced
- 1 c Cherry Tomatoes
- 1 c Spinach
- 1/2 c Olives
- 1 c Feta Cheese
- 2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 tbsp Fresh Dill, chopped
- 1 tbsp Fresh Oregano, chopped
- Olive Oil
- Seasonings (to taste): Himalayan Pink Salt, Black Peppercorn, Paprika
- 1 c Couscous, cooked
For the Avocado Tzatziki Sauce:
- 1 Avocado
- 1 Cucumber, sliced
- 2 Garlic Cloves, sliced
- 1 Lemon, juiced
- 1/4 c Greek Yogurt
- Seasonings (to taste): Himalayan Pink Salt, Black Peppercorn, Ground Dill (or Fresh Dill), Red Pepper Flakes, Cilantro
- Season Salmon with salt + pepper. Then sear in a pan, with olive oil. Once salmon is tender, remove and set aside.
- Turn oven on broil.
- In a bowl, add zucchini, garlic, shallot, bell peppers, mushrooms, seasonings, olive oil and stir. Add to a broil pan and roast veggies until tender. Remove and set aside.
- In another bowl, toss cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach, olives, dill, oregano, seasonings and olive oil with your roasted vegetables, until the spinach has wilted. Set aside.
- In a food processor, combine all ingredients for the Avocado Tzatziki Sauce. Process until it reaches a smooth consistency, transfer to a container and refrigerate (to chill), before serving.
Plating a Bowl:
I always layer my bowls and typically start with the grain, which is the cooked Couscous. Add the salmon, surrounded by veggies and tzatziki sauce. Top with crumbled Feta Cheese and lightly drizzled Balsamic Vinegar.
