Recently, I have become more health conscious and have started to limit my intake of red meats. Salmon is a great lean meat seeing as each ounce has no more than 60 calories depending on the the region it is from. I used wild Atlantic salmon which has 51 calories per ounce. Here is a homemade lemon salmon recipe I created by combining my favorite spices and sides into a meal: Simple and Sweet Salmon with Roasted Red Pepper Quinoa and Baked Sweet Potatoes.

 

 

Ingredients:

Three 8-ounce salmon filets

1 large lemon

Four sprigs of cilantro

1 cup of quinoa

5-7 sweet mini peppers
2 large sweet potatoes

3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Sprinkle of salt

Sprinkle of pepper

 

Salmon:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Place filets skin side down on baking sheet.
  3. Lightly sprinkle salt and pepper over filets.
  4. Squeeze ½ lemon evenly onto filets.
  5. Marinate 25 minutes covered in fridge.
  6. Slice four sprigs of cilantro and place on top of salmon.
  7. Bake 14-16 minutes until salmon is fully cooked.

Roasted Peppers:

  1. Chop peppers into small pieces.
  2. Place in medium sized saucepan and lightly season with olive oil.
  3. Let peppers cook 7-9 minutes on medium heat.
  4. Lower heat to simmer and stir constantly.
  5. Remove to cool when timer ends.
  6. Lightly squeeze lemon on top of peppers; careful not to add too much.

Quinoa:

  1. Pour quinoa into 2 cups of water in large pot.
  2. Bring to a boil.
  3. Lower heat to simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Quinoa will absorb water and look soft when fully cooked.
  5. Sprinkle olive oil on quinoa when finished cooking.
  6. Leave on simmer to keep warm.

 

Sweet Potatoes:

  1. Rinse sweet potatoes.
  2. Cover in foil.
  3. Place in preheated oven at 450 degrees.
  4. Bake 45 minutes.
  5. When finished, add cinnamon.

 

When quinoa and peppers are done cooking, pour the peppers into the quinoa and mix.

Leave mix to simmer on stove until ready to serve.
