This is part of a series of Meal of the Week posts designed to provide healthy meal ideas when cooking for just one person.
This might be the prettiest meal I ate this week — it’s colorful, well-seasoned, and the pile of sauteed vegetables looks very nice with that little piece of salmon on top.
BONUS: It tastes good, too.
BAKED SALMON WITH SAUTEED VEG
one defrosted or fresh salmon filet
some kind of spice blend — I used Mrs. Dash’s Chicken blend
roasted spaghetti squash (about 1/2-3/4 cup)
raw baby spinach (large handful)
chopped yellow squash (about 1/2 a medium squash)
chopped red pepper (about 1/3 a medium pepper)
chopped mushrooms (3 mushrooms)
apple cider vinegar
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking dish with nonstick spray, place salmon in dish, and season as desired. I used no salt, just Mrs. Dash. Cook salmon for about 15 minutes or until cooked through to desired level.
- Heat a large, sprayed saute pan to about medium-high. Add in peppers and squash and cook for a few minutes. Add mushrooms and cook a minute longer. Add spaghetti squash and spices (again, Mrs. Dash). When veggies are almost cooked, add the spinach, a dash of apple cider vinegar, and stir well until spinach is wilted.
- Place veggies on a plate, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with nutritional yeast, and top with the cooked salmon.
