Wow already in the middle of July. I can't believe it, I almost feel short changed on Summer being its been a little odd here in NYC. Today though the sun is out and I am off so I plan to make the most of my day. As I type away I hear the birds chirping outside so I think I will join them for a walk.
BTW...grandma update is she's coming along nicely, still a bit sore of course the rib fracture will take some time to heal as I said she's 91 but she is moving about a bit quicker and her spirits are high and the soft food diet we have her own seems to be helping her strength and efforts in breathing and chewing. My feisty viejita is back!
Anyway, Summer is truly my favorite time of year and I really want to get away from the kitchen but I still want to eat healthy, save money and bring homemade lunch to my office every now and again. I'm really liking this broil button on my toaster oven I can whip anything up in such a short time. I saw this dish in an article I read, added my own twist and made it the other night just before my volunteer date with my kids.
Thursday's Treat...Broiled Salmon and Tomatoes with Kale Salad
Season the Salmon fillets(4) with 2 tbsp of olive oil, 1/2 tsp of salt, paprika, pepper and thyme mix well. Let sit for a few minutes. On the side cut up 2 strips of scallions and 2 garlic cloves.
Cut 2 large tomatoes in 4 or 2 plum tomatoes in half depends on who likes tomatoes. In my case only 2 of the 4 that were eating were broiled Tomatoes fans.
Sprinkle a small amount of olive oil in a baking sheet place your Salmon pieces and Tomatoes halves sprinkle the scallions and garlic evenly and broil for 10 minutes, done.
I served this dish with Kale salad drizzled in balsamic vinegar. Total of 15 minutes another 10 for clean up. Delish, healthy and quick.
Always stress free xo.
