Foodie Engineer – Simple Delicious Blackened Salmon

I love a meal that doesn’t require a great deal of preparation, but rather a simple and clean presentation and lots of flavor, like this blackened salmon recipe.  Food never has to be complicated especially if it is something you are preparing during your busy work week.  I decided to throw together a recipe that I saw on foodnetwork.com.  This is such a simple and quick meal, its another meal to impress a dinner guest.

Anyone can relate to the need to have a good meal, but at the same time having demanding family, work etc.  I have added this to my go to meals to keep it healthy and tasty.

To make the puree simply steam a head of cauliflower with 3 whole cloves of garlic.  Once the vegetable is fully cooked through, transfer it and the garlic cloves to the blender, and add about 2 Tablespoons of ghee and season with salt and white pepper.  Yep, that easy
