450g salmon fillets

3 tbsp (45 mL) Harissa paste

1 tbsp (15mL) dark brown sugar

4 green onions

¼ tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper

1 tsp (5 mL) olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

¼ tsp (1 mL) salt

¼ tsp (1 mL) cayenne pepper

2 tbsp (30 mL) ground cumin

3 tbsp (45 mL) brown sugar

Directions

SPICED CASHEWS

Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium sized bowl froth egg white. Stir in remaining ingredients until well coated. Spread cashews evenly onto baking sheet. Roast for 35 minutes. Allow to completely cool. Roughly chop 1 cup (250 mL) of cashews.

*Store extra cashews for future recipes or snacking.

 

In a medium sized bowl stir together Harissa paste and brown sugar and set aside. Cut salmon fillets into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes and gently stir into paste to coat. Let marinate for 20 minutes.

In a large sauté pan over medium high heat, cook garlic in olive oil until fragrant. Stir in Green Giant* frozen Cauliflower Riced Veggies, cumin, lime juice and zest. Cook for 8 minutes. Remove firm heat.  Stir in ¾ cup (177 mL) chopped cashews and cilantro.

Preheat grill pan to medium high heat. Cut onions into 2-inch (5 cm) pieces. Using a 6-inch (15 cm) skewer, thread each skewer alternating between green onion slices and marinated salmon pieces. Drizzle skewers with olive oil and grill for 3 – 4 minutes each side.

Serve skewers with warm cashew cauliflower rice and a slice of lime. Sprinkle with reserved cashews.
