Asian Slaw Salad with Grilled Halibut


Last night we had some friends over for dinner, which is fun for me because I love cooking and it's nice to have the ingredients I want in my recipes and no well...unknowns!

My birthday is actually tomorrow but to celebrate,we usually have a double birthday dinner with my friend because her birthday is really close to mine.

Here's what I made and how you can have totally flavourful dinner parties and still eat clean:


A huge colorful salad:

Always a staple so you get lots of nutrients and lots of food that isn't heavy. This salad was inspired by one from Minimalist Baker.


  • Sliced purple cabbage
  • Shredded carrots
  • Sliced jicama
  • Chopped mixed greens: spinach, kale, baby chard
  • Spicy Chickpeas (this is my shortcut...keep reading)

Dressing: All I did was mix up a spoonful of tahini, almond butter, and sesame oil and sea salt!I grilled halibut and scallops for the protein with a delicious, light marinade.


Marinade Ingredients:

  • Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Coconut Aminos
  • Rice Vinegar
  • Sesame Oil (just a dash)
  • Lime Zest & Juice
  • Grated garlic
  • Grated ginger root


You can also see my roasted rainbow cauliflower on the side....more vegetables!

You can roast your own chickpeas with your own flavors or find the ones I used in the store. These are the ones I used and you can find other flavour profiles too!
