Need a quick and easy meal that is healthy too! I’ve got you covered! If you love salmon or any type of fish this meal is for you... and no my kids didn’t eat it. They had cheese quesadillas..duh! Haha!
Tonight’s dinner was and is one of my favorites. It was salmon, Cole Slaw, Green Beans, and salad....plus I made homemade cheddar garlic biscuits. Can you say yum??? It was delicious. I, of course, didn’t have any biscuits, but it was still very good. And filling...I’m still feeling full!
I buy my salmon at Aldi in the frozen section. They are wild caught salmon filets and come 4 to a pack. They are cheap and good. I will lay them out in the morning on my counter to thaw or If you are in a rush like me just place how many you need in warm water and let them sit. They come individually packed which makes it nice. After they are thawed I then place them in a bowl and then make my marinade in a separate bowl.
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp basil (dried)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 clove of garlic (minced finely)
1/4 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp of pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
Pour over the salmon and let it get coated. You can let this sit for a while or just do a quick marinade. The fish will be delicate. I usually brush the marinade on. I have a grill skillet so I put butter in my skillet and coat my pan and then cook my fish for 8-10 minutes on medium heat. Depending on how you like your fish it will shorter and or longer.
I love garden beans. Especially from my Papaw’s garden, but when I run out I improvise and these beans are a fav of mine. Easy and simple. I love to buy the steam-able bag from Birds Eye. I love the whole green bean. I steam then In the microwave per the packing instructions and when done I pour 1/4-1/2cup of olive oil, 1 tsp garlic salt, and pepper and mix till they have been coated.
Buy a bag of cole slaw mix and put in a bowl.
You will need:
2/3 cup mayo
1/4 cup sugar or sugar substitute
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
2 TBSP vinegar
2 TBSP buttermilk or milk
Mix together and allow to sit for 30 min.
Cheddar Garlic Biscuits
I make my biscuits according to the White Lily Self Rising flour Recipe.
2 cups flour
1/4 cup of shortening
3/4 buttermilk or 2/3 cup whole milk
2 TBSP Butter
I also add in garlic powder (1 TBSP) and 1/2-3/4 cup cheese (I used a cheddar and Colby blend)
Mix well and then roll out. Use a biscuit cutter. I add garlic to my butter and when I place the biscuits on the baking sheet I butter them with the garlic butter and sprinkle more cheese on top.
Bake at 400 till tops are golden!
Almonds ( chopped)
I mix up my salad all the time and add different things. This is what this one included because this was all I had.
This dinner was simple and so good. It was easy and something that I enjoy eating and it feels like a meal you would get out somewhere. Except 1/4 of the cost!!! Who doesn’t love saving money, but still having an amazing meal. I know I do!
Give this recipe a try and enjoy a meal at home. You can make it fancy by doing salmon and he sides or simple doing fish tacos. Just get in the kitchen and have fun.
Love and Prayers,
