I love living in the city because life goes by so fast. We have fast cars and can shop and date at the blink of an eye.
With our busy lifestyle, we often rely on fast, yet unhealthy, food. Well, I’m not going to stand for it.
Here’s how you can make a salmon dinner for date night that will combine tangy, spicy, sweet and creamy flavors. All of this in just 15 minutes and $25!
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 salmon fillets
1 cup brown rice
1 bunch asparagus
Marinade for the fish
1 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. lime juice
1 tbsp. olive oil
½ tbsp. Dijon mustard
First, set water to boil so you can start cooking brown rice.
Whisk together the olive oil, honey, fresh lime juice and Dijon mustard.
Baste the salmon, skin down, on an oiled baking sheet.
Is the water boiling yet? Set your brown rice to cook and turn on the broiler.
On another baking sheet, coat asparagus with olive oil, season with salt and pepper to taste.
Pop the fish and asparagus in the oven for broiling for about 6-7 minutes. By then, your rice should be cooked, too.
That’s it! Plate everything and serve with fresh lime wedge. Pair the meal with a light white blend. Your date will surely be impressed.
