Salmon-Orzo-Pico Stack


‘I can do it’ is what I had to keep telling myself when I realized that the part we had just replaced on our mower needed to be replaced AGAIN. It was a pain in the rear the first time but being that I paid attention it was relatively easy the second time. My husband works very hard at his job and I did not want him to have to worry about mower problems on his weekend…So….I fixed it (I think). We will see next time I mow. Nice hot, sweaty day….love it.

Made myself a treat for dinner tonight. I am a huge lover of the crab stack on the menu at Saltgrass Steak House and thought I would recreate it with salmon. My husband had a company meeting tonight so I made a lovely stacked salmon avocado salad just for me.

Bottom-Layer 1

  • 1/2 cup Napa cabbage
  • 1 Tablespoon crèma
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime juice
  • salt and pepper


Orzo Pasta cooked in chicken broth with butter, salt and pepper


Avocado, tomato, jalapeno, cilantro and lime juice


Salmon sprinkled with lemon pepper, garlic powder and salt.  Pan fried in coconut oil.

I used a piece of 4″ straight pvc pipe sprayed with cooking spray.  Press layers into pipe and refrigerate for 30 minutes.  After lifting pipe I garnished with fresh basil, sriracha, an avaocado slice and of course….MORE CREMA.

This was a very light dinner.  Perfect!

Have a great evening!
