I have been making a lot more fish lately. It's Lent and I am Catholic, so it makes sense, right?
I had an assignment this week in my online nutrition class to create a recipe that had some cultural or religious significance to me. So I came up with this one. It was really good and my family loved it too.
4 oz salmon filets. I used wild caught (healthier then farm raised) and I get frozen ones from Aldi. Frozen ends up being less expensive then fresh and still tastes good!
Dillweed (I like Pampered Chef's Blend)
Fresh garlic (I save time by buying it minced in a jar)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Place salmon on foil square
sprinkle with oil, garlic and dill
Form a pouch with the foil around the salmon
Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes until flakes lightly with fork
Quinoa Pasta With Vegetables:
1 cup quinoa pasta
2 cups water
fresh garlic minced
chopped fresh spinach
Cook quinoa according to package. I added a little salt, garlic and onion to the water for flavor.
In the last 3 minutes of cooking, add the tomato and spinach for color and nutrients
Sweet Potato and Parsnip Baked Fries:
Parsnips and sweet potatos
extra virgin olive oil
dash of salt
Peel and slice vegetables
spread evening on baking sheet
sprinkle with salt and garlic powder
Place in oven with salmon
Bake until you remove salmon from oven
Turn vegetables over and continue to bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes or until desired crispness is reached.
This not only fit in for my class assignment, but it was really healthy and tasty too.What meatless dishes do you like to make?
Thanks for reading. Have a great day!
