Parsnip Salmon Fries

Although I am all for a balanced diet, it doesn't hurt to cut back on your favourite fast food french fried or even the kind you find in the freezer section. You can always make regular fried at home or use sweet potatoes by baking them but one option that I have fell in love with is parsnips. 

Now before you judge, hear me out. They are the perfect texture and are not far off of potatoes, they bake really nicely and therefore requiring not frying, and they look like regular fries helping with the whole aesthetic of the dish - you might even be able to fool your kids with this one (just tell them its a special kind of french fry maybe?)

Now, the salmon aspect of it. All I can really say is that it just tastes good and you need to trust me! Or don't and try it anyways ;) 


6 parsnips, sliced

2 pieces of salmon

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp sea salt


Preheat oven to 450F

Add sliced parsnips with 2 tbsp olive oil and sea salt

Bake for for 15 minutes, flip and bake for another 15 minutes

Remove from oven and reheat oven to 350F

Add 1 tbsp olive oil with salmon and bake for 25 minutes (may need less time if oven is oven is still hot)

Serve with cashew cream cheese (previous post)

 Or enjoy fried on their own!
