Another Simple Healthy Dinner

As you can tell one of my main priorities right now is putting a healthy dinner on the table.  Since time is hard to come by simple is the key!

Baked salmon with roasted asparagus and kombucha squash.

The prep time was 15 minutes!  For this dinner, once everything is prepped you just let the oven do the rest.  The result: a healthy and delicious dinner on the table.

Here’s the prep:

Kombucha Squash: The cutting of the squash took the most prep time out of all.  Make sure to be careful, cutting hard squash can be dangerous!  I sliced the squash and tossed it with some spices (cumin, paprika, cinnamon, cayenne, salt, pepper, a dash of sugar and olive oil).

Roasted Asparagus: I washed the asparagus, trimmed off the tough ends and placed the asparagus on a cookie sheet coated with cooking spray.  Tossed with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper.

Salmon: One of my favorite ways to prepare salmon is to top it off with a little Soy Vay.  You can easily make your own similar marinade, but again when I’m crunched for time using some help from the store is the way to go!

As you can see I lined all my baking dishes with aluminum foil to allow for easy clean-up.  I know it’s not that environmentally friendly but the last thing I want to do at night is scrub baking dishes, they are a real pain to clean!

I preheated the oven to 425 degrees.  The squash takes about 40 minutes total.  So I put the squash in first.  After 20 minutes, I flipped the squash and then added the salmon and asparagus to the oven.  The greatest part about oven dinners is that you can do other things while the oven is doing the work.  In no time dinner was ready.

I try to make salmon one time a week since it’s so healthy.  It’s also very easy to cook.

  1. I really like the honey-soy glazed salmon recipe at EatingWell or rubbing cumin on it. I don’t think there is any way to prepare salmon that I don’t like because it’s my favorite fish!

  2. I love salmon! I don’t like to overpower the salmon with too many seasonings because I really enjoy the flavor so I usually just use some olive oil, salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon.

  3. Pure deliciousness right there! I eat salmon (or fish) every single day and it’s always absolutely out of this world delicious!

    I don’t like to do anything too fancy to my salmon, just simply broil it so that it toasts beautifully and it’s delicious fat seeps out! I usually broil it on top of a bed of spaghetti squash because it’s fat infused the squash wonderfully, definitely worth a shot the next time you cook salmon! 🙂

  4. I like salmon either in the oven or grilled on wood planks (if I have them).

    Kabocha squash is SO good! It is my veggie of choice when it is in season around here. I first tried it when I was little and lived with my family in Japan. It makes a great soup!

  5. For years I’ve been coating my salmon with ranch dressing and baking it in the oven.

  6. I love love salmon! Hope it is going great with your little one!!!
