Salmon to the rescue!

Salmon is one of those foods we don’t always have on the meal plan. It seems to intimidate us slightly because we’re not sure….how to get it just perfect. The perception that it takes too much time – sometimes it’s just to “fancy” for a weeknight dinner

All of these assumptions are false. (You know what they say about assuming…)

Salmon is full of Omega-3 so it’s a great addition to your meal plan. Salmon can be on your table, ready to eat in less than 30 minutes

What you need to know:  

Atlantic vs. Pacific Salmon

30 Minute Meal Solution: Baked Salmon and Green Beans

What you need:

– Salmon Fillets (frozen or fresh)  TIP: for frozen fillets look for “Flash Frozen”
– 4-6 fillets (110g each)placed on a sheet pan (or stoneware as demonstrated in video)
– 4 Cups green beans, cut and washed
– 1 tbsp Garlic & Herb Seasoning (or your favorite seasoning)
– 2 tbsp Oil
– Salt / pepper

– Optional: thinly sliced lemon and onions (1/4 of a white onion)

What you do:

Watch the video (caution: it was our VERY FIRST VIDEO EVER!! so patience with the camera work) or see directions below.

  1. Pre-heat Oven to 400° F
  2. Oil or Butter Pan if needed (if using stoneware, no prep necessary)
  3. Place Salmon fillets towards one end of pan, leaving a little gap between each fillet.
    – TIP:  Fold over any thin pieces and secure with a toothpick (this avoids drying out of those ends)
  4. Season fillets with salt pepper and if using the “optional” ingredients, add onions and lemon slices to the salmon.
  5. Place beans in a large mixing bowl, add oil, seasoning, salt & pepper.  Mix well.
  6. Pour Beans on to the empty area of pan (they can extend into the salmon area if needed)
  7. Place pan  at about 1/2 height in your oven and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, checking the salmon for completion. When slicing into salmon should be a solid colour right through.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

Compliment with rice (here’s our Fool-proof rice) or salad if desired.

So make Salmon a part of your regular meal plan!

Have a great day!
