Salmon is one of my favourite proteins to cook with because there are so many things you can do with it. This Sweet and Spicy Salmon is probably one of my ultimate favourite ways to enjoy salmon, it’s such a quick and simple staple meal that it has never crossed my mind to share it with you. Well, don’t worry, those days are over. You can now sigh a happy sigh of relief. With just four ingredients, yes I said four, you can have this salmon on the table in just 21 minutes.
Can you imagine, getting home from work/school at 7:40pm only to realize that there are only 20 minutes until Grey’s Anatomy starts! What are you going to have for dinner? There’s not enough time so you think to pull out one of those sodium stuffed frozen meals, well friends, please don’t do that. With only a couple of minutes of prep time you’ll be eating your salmon in no time. As far as side dishes go, anything from my Side Dishes category would do, but my personal favourites are this quick and easy 5 minute Spiced Couscous or these quick Green Beans in Vinaigrette.
