for the meal:

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1 1/2 cups cauliflower rice or more
  • Spoonful of avocado dressing see below
  • 1 avocado sliced for serving, optional

for the dressing:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup water


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Drizzle a little oil into an oven-proof skillet (I used my cast iron). Wrap each salmon fillet with a slice of bacon, then place the salmon into your skillet.
  • Sear the salmon for 2 minutes on each side, then place the entire skillet into the oven and cook salmon for 10-15 minutes.
  • While salmon is cooking, prepare the cauliflower rice according to the package instructions.
  • Last, make the dressing by combining the ingredients in your food processor or blender and pulsing until smooth.
  • Serve salmon over cauliflower, then drizzle it with the avocado dressing.
  • Enjoy!
