Flatbread Recipe: Five Ingredient Curried Salmon with Cantaloupe
Alexandra Williams, MA
At a recent breakfast hosted by Flatout Bread I was invited to create a recipe using one of their three new flatbread flavors. I decided to create a wrap using the Sea Salt and Crushed Black Pepper that only needed 5 ingredients – Curried Salmon with Cantaloupe.
Before you try to guess the five ingredients (well, three, since I mentioned two above), you’ll want some good nutrition news about the Flatout Bread ingredients. The two flatbreads that I tried at the breakfast (but didn’t use for this recipe) were Core 12 and Red Pepper Hummus, both of which are powered by chickpeas. The flatbread I used for this salmon recipe is full of navy beans. Yes, I want to break out singing the Village People song. All three flavors have 12 grams of protein and 8-10 grams of carbohydrates.
As I am currently studying for my Nutrition Specialist certification, I am also aware that these flatbreads have 0 trans fat, plus the macrominerals calcium, magnesium, and potassium, and the micromineral iron. I have had anemia in the past, so am always on the lookout for iron. As well, they are made from whole beans, which is a fiber and protein benefit for a non-meat eater like myself.
Okay, time for the recipe, and I really do hope you’ll try it. When I created this recipe I tried to choose only ingredients that added flavor and benefits.
Curried Salmon and Cantaloupe Protein UP Sea Salt and Crushed Black Pepper Wrap
First off, I chose the salt and pepper wrap (even though the red pepper hummus is my favorite) because it already had salt and pepper in it, so I didn’t need to add any to the recipe.
½ pound salmon
4 oz organic sour cream
¾ tsp red curry paste
6-7 fresh basil leaves, cut into pieces
½ cup cantaloupe, cubed into small pieces
Grill the salmon, then cut it into small pieces. While it’s cooking, mix the red curry paste and sour cream together in a small bowl. You may be tempted to add water to the curry paste, but resist, y’all, resist, as the cantaloupe has plenty of water and you will cry in frustration if your wraps become soggy. Add the unseasoned salmon to the curry mix and stir them together.
Lay out two Flatout Sea Salt and Crushed Black Pepper flatbreads on a cutting board, then spread the salmon mixture over them, covering the flatbreads fully. Then sprinkle the cut cantaloupe over the top, followed by the basil. Roll the flatbreads up tightly, starting at the long end, then cut into one-inch sections. That’s it. Eat them. One suggestion – be liberal with the basil, as this recipe is not as exciting without it.
