IMG_1389

If you are looking for a really easy, quick and delicious weeknight recipe, this might be a new stand by. I’m pretty wild about any dish that requires little time, less mess and big flavor after a long day of work and dragging my butt to the gym. This recipe is just that (plus pretty healthy!) – and it’s going into my regular line up for my tight-on-time situations! The recipe makes two healthy servings although I reheated half the next night for single people portions.

In warmer months, throw the fish on your grill the fish and enjoy the atmosphere (can you see my dream bubble appearing above my head?) Also, turn this into a salad with greens and some quinoa. Get creative with salmon – it’s really versatile!
