Whatever happened, I've been converted! So if you're looking for a seafood recipe that's dressed to impress, this salmon is in it to win it!
Keep It FODMAP Friendly
Whether you're a die-hard fish fan or someone who's still on the fence when it comes to fishies, this recipe will rock your socks! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly!
First up, salmon. Since fish is a protein, it doesn't have any FODMAPs. That means you can eat as much salmon as you'd like without adding to your FODMAP load.
Heads up! While salmon is a healthy addition to your diet, it can be a little fatty. If you know high-fat foods upset your tummy, start with a small serving and see how it goes.
Next up is soy sauce. According to the Monash app, soy sauce is low FODMAP in servings of 2 tbsp per sitting. Though Monash doesn't list a maximum serving size. You can read more about these quirky foods here.
This recipe uses 3 tbsp total, which works out to about 15 g per serving. This is well within the recommended range.
We'll also be using lemon juice. Monash University has determined lemon juice is low FODMAP in servings of 1/2 a cup or 125 g per sitting. Servings of 3/4 of a cup (187 g) or more are high in the FODMAP fructan.
Our recipe uses 2 tbsp total, which works out to 15.6 g per serving. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
Next up, green beans. According to the Monash app, green beans are low FODMAP in servings of 15 beans or 75 g per sitting. Servings of 25 beans (125 g) or more are high in the FODMAP Sorbitol.
This recipe uses 1 cup of green beans which works out to about 31.25 g per serving. This is well within the recommended range.
Last but not least, this recipe also calls for butter. According to Monash University, unlike other dairy products butter is low FODMAP (because it's all fat). That means you don't need to use lactose-free butter. Just make sure to check the label for added high FODMAP ingredients like milk and milk solids and you're good to go.
