Whole30 Day Twenty Four: This Is Really Winter

Sydney has been hit by a polar blast. I’m sure that the vortex is my apartment. It is freezing today. I curse my floor to ceiling windows. Not only do they let the cold in, but my neighbours can see me shuffling around in my bright pink Nordic onesie (which is so 3 years ago!).

Breakfast: Smoked Salmon Omelette

I picked up a couple of packets of my favourite smoked salmon at the fish markets yesterday, which I folded into an omelette, and topped with some lemon zest. 

Lunch: Chicken Broth and Boiled Eggs with Mayonnaise

I would have loved a soup today, but a rummage around the freezer confirmed that all my soups contain dairy which is illegal under Whole30 rules. Luckily I found some chicken stock, so I reduced it in a pot to make it even more flavoursome. It certainly helped fend off potential hypothermia. 

Dinner: Mayonnaise Scallop “Mornay” and Lemon Pepper Sugar Snap Peas

Scallops were on special at the fish markets, so I picked up half a dozen to bring home to make into a Mornay style dish. I created this by spooning a coriander infused mayonnaise over scallops and baking them in the half shell. 

The scallops were paired with lightly steamed sugar snap peas with lemon juice, lemon zest and freshly cracked black pepper.
