Easy Dinner in 25 Minutes

This is one of my favorite go-to quickie dinners. It’s so easy to make at the last minute and it’s healthy, too.

We almost always have frozen salmon on hand from Costco. Defrost a piece of salmon and place it on a small piece of foil.

Use Lemon Pepper Seasoning. Sprinkle onto the fish.

Don’t use it sparingly. It doesn’t have salt in it, so you can’t use “too much.”

Add a few tabs of butter.

Loosely wrap the salmon in foil–not too tight.

Place salmon on a pan and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. While it’s baking, steam some veggies.

Check on the salmon around 18 minutes in. The rate of cooking can change depending on how thick or large the piece of fish is.

Add some cottage cheese to the plate for some extra protein. Top the steamed veggies with whatever you prefer: melted butter and salt, dressing, or plain. I use Goddess Dressing.

It’s healthy and filling and the perfect fast dinner.

Salmon is a Super Food: low in calories and fat, high in protein and Omega-3’s.

QUESTION: What’s your favorite Under 30 Minute Dinner?

Lunch for One

Michael went golfing this morning with his friend so when I got home from the pool, I made myself lunch. I steamed cauliflower and some baby carrots and topped them with Trader Joe’s Goddess Dressing. I also made Chicken Shu Mai. It’s my favorite Trader Joe’s find. It’s in the frozen section.

They are super yummy and very low in calories! A serving size is 6 pieces for only 160 calories! The way I used to eat them was with some soy sauce and brown rice. I skipped the brown rice today.

I also had some hot sauce with the Shu Mai. Beware! It’s VERY spicy if you’ve never tried it before.

Looks messy, but it was delicioius.

The rest of today is going to be restful for me. Yesterday’s ride wore me out!

QUESTION: If you’re in a relationship, who does most of the cooking? What do you eat when you’re on your own?
