To make the salmon, I salt and pepper it lightly and squeeze half a lemon over it. Sometimes I like to chop up a few mushrooms (I LOVE mushrooms) and throw those on the baking sheet with it (I use a small glass Pyrex brownie pan). Then I bake it in the oven at 350 degrees. The time varies based on how large of a piece of fish you use, so I generally just keep an eye on it, but it's usually about 20 minutes or so.
I'm a big asparagus fan and I've been making an effort to eat more vegetables. You start by cutting off the tough ends of asparagus. If you put a little water (about half an inch) in a sauté pan and place the asparagus in with the lid on, they steam very quickly. Again, I usually just eyeball how done the asparagus is. Some people like it more crunchy, others more soft, so it's just a matter of personal preference.
I usually make a lemon/butter/garlic/wine sauce. I don't even follow a recipe, I just add a little white wine to a saucepan, add lemon juice and let it reduce before adding in a bit of garlic and butter. Mine was a bit too watery here (I was ravenous and couldn't wait for my sauce to cook down), but it was still tasty.
All this sounds like a lot more trouble than it really was. I spent less than a half hour in the kitchen and I ended up with something that was both easy and relatively healthy.
What are your go-to quick and healthy meals? I'd love suggestions!
