For many people eating healthy and cooking quickly can be challenging. With a little planning and the right ingredients, however, it’s possible to make quick meals which are healthy and taste great too. One key to this is to keep a list of ingredients for the recipes on your smart phone, so if you need to shop for a meal, you have a ready-made list. Non-perishable ingredients, such as basic spices, can be kept in stock and ready to use. These recipes can be prepared in 20 to 45 minutes, and will keep you eating healthy without a lot of prep time.
1) Baked Salmon with Mandarin Oranges
Start with a fresh piece of salmon – preferably wild-caught. Wash and pat the fish dry. Wipe a little olive oil over the inside surface of a glass baking dish. Place the salmon skin side down. Drizzle a little honey or agave nectar all over the fish. Sprinkle some parsley, salt & pepper over the top. Peel the orange and dice the slices, placing on top. Use the juice of a couple of slices to add some liquid to the pan. This will also help to caramelize the skin, so it comes out crispy. Alternatively, you can used canned Mandarin oranges. Bake at 350 degrees until the fish is cooked through and flakes with a fork. Baking time is approximately 20 minutes, depending on the size of the fish. Serve with a side of asparagus or other green vegetable for a complete healthy meal.
