Asian Ginger Salmon and Cauliflower “Fried Rice”

IMG_1526

Okay, so I have a new obsession – Cauliflower Fried Rice.  It’s insane!  I’m not a huge fan of cauliflower raw without it being drenched in ranch dressing, but lately I’ve found so many amazing recipes – pizza, fried rice…  I mean I can’t wait to see what else is out there!  I’m planning on making a huge batch of this each week and eating it during the week.  (If it lasts that long…the last batch lasted 1 day…oops.)  I added some chicken to my leftovers – so so good.

I found both of these recipes on Lex’s Clean Kitchen, which is one of my favorite blogs.  I adapted them a bit to taste and to shat I had available…a couple of her ingredients I think would even add to the Asian taste, and flare – I just didn’t have them!  So, check out her original recipes.

I had a friend recently send me a sample of this amazing gluten free, low sodium soy sauce, and I’m now using it for all of my Asian influenced cooking!  Go check it out – so good!!
