Pan Fried Soy Sauce and Lemon Salmon with Stir Fried Greens
What a perfect combination of healthy fats, protein and crunchy broccolini and asparagus!
A beautiful meal, whether on a health kick, a healthy diet, or just looking for a restaurant quality dinner/lunch!
You’re taste buds will be swimming in perfect unison with this salmon. Ok. It’s a cheesy one liner, but the honest truth!
This is a very quick meal to throw together, with or without the marinading part. I threw this one together while my family indulged in KFC. True story. I needed something to keep me on track, and this was it. I knew ahead of time that they had the ‘evil’ plan already plotted of oily chicken and greasy fries. I didn’t want any part in it. I cannot be trusted with a bucket of chicken.
I quickly went down to my supermarket, bought a beautiful piece of salmon, as if my life depended on it, and rushed home quickly to cook this up. It’s one of those, ‘throw everything into a pan, hurry up,’ meals.
And it totally worked.
