Fresh and Fast
Making a fresh meal fast can seem like a hassle when daily commitments challenge our time management skills. It’s easy to forget that a delicious, healthy meal can be fast and convenient. Take a look at this easy, tasty dinner made in no time.
First, I turn on the oven to preheat to 425 degrees while preparing the meal. I wrap a large piece of salmon sprinkled with Pike’s Place fish seasoning (What can I say? I miss living in Seattle.) in parchment paper and foil, gently pinching the top closed.
Next, I spread a thin layer of olive oil on a baking sheet. I gently toss asparagus, kale, and carrots with olive oil, pepper, and Himalayan pink salt. We have an oven split with an upper oven and lower oven. The salmon went in the top oven and the vegetables in the bottom oven. This would work just fine in a single oven as well.
While the fish and salmon are cooking I clean any dishes, fold laundry, help my son with homework, or tend to any other daily tasks. After a quick 20-25 minutes, we had an amazing meal of fresh salmon, roasted vegetables, and warm Naan bread. I placed the Naan bread in the warm oven while I was plating the salmon and vegetables.
*Cooking times may vary depending on the size of the salmon.
It’s a fast delicious meal that fuels the entire family! This meal is easy to prep and easy to clean. It leaves just the right amount of time and energy for a family evening walk or bike ride.
Lastly, I keep my fingers crossed that we will have leftovers 🙂
