Surf and turf spicy Caesar salad with curry is a healthy gluten-free dish. It’s great for spicing up your salads and it will keep your immune system strong! Easy to make and so delicious!
I will confess. The kiwi and I are not romantic. In fact, we’re quite boring. But hey, that’s us, right? We spend a lot of date nights in because:
- A– I like to cook, it’s my therapy and my excuse to have wine. Ahem… guilty.
- B – The Kiwi has a lot of long rides and runs during the weekend, so I try to make meals that will be quick but nutrient dense.
One of my favorite meals to make on a cold weekend night is this spicy surf and turf Caesar salad, but let me tell you why it’s good during cold months.
For one, the steak and shrimp are great sources of iron and amino acids. We need those for muscle regeneration.
But the curry, oh yes, it’s magical!
Health Benefits of Curry
Curry powder is actually a mixture of several spices –> turmeric, fenugreek, curry leaves and even coriander. Curry has many health benefits, but the one benefits that I really APPRECIATE during the colder months is it’s effect it has on joint care and blood circulation in the body! If regularly consumed, curry can help reduce stiffness that often occurs in the joints and muscles during winter. And if you’ve ever trained for a marathon or triathlon or anything for that matter during the winter months, then you’ll definitely know that feeling. Am I right?
So, a little curry every day is a great way to spice up dishes and loosen up those joints. Yep, we’re curry obsessed.
Quick Thai Green Curry Beef Veggie Bowls are magically delicious (in a healthy way!)
Okay okay, enough nutrition talk, let’s get to the spicy surf and turf Caesar salad recipe.
Oh my goodness is sooooo good and so easy!Print
And if you actually use chop sticks to eat the salad, you get bonus points because it’s hard and takes a lot of patience when you are hungry. Just sayin…
What’s your favorite way to use curry? I’d love more ideas, always!
Happy weekend, happy training, happy EATING!
And stay warm.
