Stir fries are one of my favourite mid-week meals as they are so quick and easy to prepare but never short of flavour! I normally use chicken, turkey or tofu in this type of dish so I decided to marinate some salmon to use instead and it tasted amazing. The longer you marinate the salmon the better it tastes so you could even prepare it in the morning before work so it is ready to be fried in minutes when you get home.

I used courgetti in this recipe because is the perfect low carb alternative to noodles resulting in a nutritious, low carb, high protein meal. Adding the egg isn’t essential to the dish but it gives it an extra boost of protein, perfect for a post workout dinner. I always opt for low carb meals on rest days or when I have spent the day recipe testing, especially when testing cake recipes as I always end up eating so much of them. It’s all about balance!
