SUMMER BAKED SALMON BOWL

06/15/2017

BakedSalmonBowl_BleubirdOne of my favorite things to prepare as of late is salmon. It’s simple, quick, delicious, and healthy. For the longest time, I was intimidated by the thought of cooking fish, but once I tried it and realized just how easy it was, I started making it a few times a week. This bowl is filled with bright and fresh veggies, and is full of nutrients. Of course, you can adapt the recipe to include whatever you have on hand, and many things can be prepped ahead of time, so you can easily assemble your bowls on the fly without the heavy knife-work. Enjoy! xxJ

Summer Baked Salmon Bowl

Ingredients: yields one portion

3 oz. wild caught salmon
sweet paprika
dill
zucchini
cucumber
purple cabbage
lemon
fresh mint
olive oil
apple cider vinegar

Start by washing your veggies. Next, peel carrots and cucumber and then chop, or with a spiralizer (I have this one), spiral your carrots, cucumber, and zucchini. Chop or slice the purple cabbage and mint. You can prep your vegetables any way you prefer. Mix in a bowl and set aside. Preheat over to 400 degrees. While the over in preheating, place you salmon skin side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can put a little olive or avocado oil under your salmon if you’d like to, but I don’t because I like that the skin sticks to the parchment after cooking, so I don’t have salmon skin in my bowl. Squeeze lemon over the salmon and then season with sweet paprika, dill, salt and pepper. Bake salmon for 12-15 minutes. Depending on how hungry you are, place a desired amount of your prepped veggies into a dinner bowl. I like to chop a lot extra to use the veggies for quick meals over the next few days and they keep nicely in the fridge. Dress your salad with dressing of choice or use a drizzle of apple cider vinegar and olive oil. Once salmon is done baking, slide a fish spatula (I have this one) between the fish and the skin. It comes right off. Place salmon on top veggies and enjoy!

I added sliced radishes, pickled onions, and sesame, ginger carrots to my bowl (you can really add anything to your dish: sliced avocado, roasted veggies, brown rice, etc.). I’ll share the quick and easy recipes for pickled onions and sesame, ginger carrots soon!
