Can I tell you how much I love having salmon for dinner? I love incorporating fish into my diet whenever I can, because fish is not only a great source of protein and contains healthy fats, but also pretty easy to prepare. Bonus: salmon is brimming with great omega 3 fatty acids. My healthy salmon recipe can also be made as a quick lunch. I love to make this dish on nights when I want dinner done fast, but still have a flavorful and healthy experience.
Fish and citrus are wonderful pairings. This easy-to-make vinaigrette adds brightness, combined with the delicious rosemary herb, which takes this dish to depths of deliciousness. Try serving this healthy dinner recipe with a side of wild or coconut rice. If you want a gut restoring salad to serve this with, then you must try my Massaged Kale with Fennel Salad. This salad is one of my favorites from my Restore Your Gut Health Program.
There are so many delicious ways to serve this healthy dinner recipe. Try it on a bed of greens for a quick and nutritious lunch option. For a more substantial dinner, try it with a healthy carb option such as millet, sorghum, wild or brown rice. For extra flavor cook the rice in a vegetable or chicken broth. I typically love cooking in bone broth to get gain the added nutrients.
For a lower-carb dinner option, try my ginger-garlic cabbage, or kale and fennel salad. This healthy salmon recipe is one of my favorite weeknight dinner recipes, which will soon become one of your favorites.
