One Skillet bodybuilding Salmon Recipe for bulking Cooking Instructions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium/high heat with the olive oil. Put the diced potatoes in and season with a bit of the rosemary. Sauté the potatoes until they are tender and have good color. Remove the potatoes and set aside for a few minutes.

    Cook the potato

    Prepare the red potatoes. Great for bulking!

  2. Season the salmon with the rosemary sprinkled on top (both sides if no skin).

  3. Place the salmon in the same hot skillet, skin side down (if it has skin).

  4. Turn the salmon over once to create some good color on top, but not necessary.

    Cook the salmon

    Pan sear the fresh salmon fillet. 8oz Portion.

  5. A a little water (just a tablespoon or 2) in the skillet and cover for about 5 minutes depending on thickness. This helps cook by steaming a bit.

  6. When the salmon is close to done, slide it over in the pan and make room for the potatoes to come back in for a minute to get hot.

  7. When the potatoes are just about hot, slide everything over and make room for the chopped spinach. Cover the pan and give it a minute or so for the spinach to get hot, then serve. Note: Fresh spinach is an awesome alternative, you’ll just need to make sure you have room in the pan for a bunch. It will cook down. I like to pull it out and serve once it just begins to wilt.

    Add the spinach

    Toss in the spinach for a great bodybuilding bulking recipe.

Salmon is the best fish recipe for bulking since it is rich in omega-3 fats that lubricate your joints while you workout.

Bodybuilding Salmon Recipe with Potato Suggestions

Tip 1: You can use fresh rosemary if available, even better. Just remember dried herbs are a little more powerful by weight than fresh herbs, so with the fresh, you can use a little more.

Tip 2: TIP: Squeeze a little lemon over everything to brighten it up if you like. Highly recommended for this dish, and most bodybuilding diet meals for that matter!
