Easiest Salmon Meal Ever

This week I'm detoxing. Hard. Between my trip to Florida and the total melee that is SXSW, I've spent the last 10ish days essentially poisoning my body with booze and calories. So, this week we start over. I'm making healthy foods all week. It's gotta be baby steps, a week is ambitious for me on good-for-me dinners.

Last night's creation: Salmon, Caprese and Rice:

I found this great salmon recipe (Pinterest, duh)... but I don't even know if you can even call it a recipe it was so easy. I'm going to paraphrase:

2 6oz Salmon filets
Fresh Rosemary
Clove of garlic
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

(really that's it).


1. Preheat oven to 425. Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with Pam.

2. Mix the rosemary (about a sprig), garlic and a tiny bit of olive oil (like less than a tablespoon) into a think paste-ish marinade:

3. Sprinkle Salt and Pepper on the salmon filets and rub the marinade all up on it:

4. Bake for 8-10 minutes and VOILA!

I paired it with a  long grain wild rice (just from a box, low sodium, used olive oil instead of butter) and a modified caprese salad (that recipe also originally seen on the Pinterest). 

To make the salad: Toss fresh mozzarella, chopped basil, cherry tomatoes and diced avocado in olive oil and lemon juice. I like to add a little balsamic vinegar for flavor. That's it.

These are going to become go-to's of mine I think. There was full-fat cheese in the salad, but let's be real here, that was the only bad-ish thing and I can't go cheese-less. It's serious skinny time (again). 

Also, do not forget to go enter my giveaway! It's open until Sunday!
