Start New Year With A Healthier Alternative To Fish Friday - Salmon & Spinach Recipe

Salmon recipe for elderly | Care At Home

We're no strangers to eating all the chocolate, cheese, and beige foods at Christmas - it is the time to indulge! And like everyone else on the planet, we're currently watching the calories and detoxing our bodies, replacing indulgent meals with healthy and nutritional options.

We love this salmon recipe - salmon is great for keeping your mind in top shape, as well as providing essential oils to keep your body strong and healthy. Why not try this at home yourself, or ask your live-in carer to help you make this delicious recipe?

You will need:

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 2 skinless & boneless salmon fillets

  • 200g bag spinach

  • 2 tbsp reduced-fat crème fraîche

  • juice of ½ lemon

  • 1 tsp drained capers

  • 2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley

  • salt & pepper to season

  • lemon wedges to serve

  1. ​Heat the olive oil in your pan. Take your salmon fillets and season them on both sides, then place in the pan and fry for four mins on each side until golden and the flesh falls apart and flakes. Place the fillets on a plate and leave to rest.

  2. Boil water in a kettle and tip into a hot pan. Place the spinach leaves in the hot water and leave to wilt for one to two minutes. Drained the leaves and put them on a plate to make a bed for the salmon. Place the salmon on the spinach. On a low heat, gently warm the crème fraîche in a pan. Squeeze a little bit of the lemon juice into the pan, and place the capers and parsley, then use salt and pepper to season. Don't let the sauce boil! When finished, pour the sauce over your salmon, then serve whilst hot with lemon wedges!

For some, preparing meals can be challenging. This is where the invaluable support of a live-in carer comes into play. Beyond assistance with daily tasks, they can help ensure you're receiving balanced meals tailored to your needs. Additionally, short-term respite care offers relief to primary caregivers while ensuring continuous quality nutrition. Companion care, on the other hand, not only provides company but also promotes a healthy eating routine. Together, these care options bridge the gap between challenges and consistent, wholesome nutrition.
