Grilled Salmon with Roasted Almonds, Cranberries & Avocado

Happy Thursday! 
Everyone getting ready for Valentine's Day? I hope for most its just a day for extra treats and not just the only day you go all out for those you love. Every day is Valentine's Day as far as I am concerned if you really love someone. So to help you out I thought I'd share this nutritious gem that is quick & easy and leaves plenty of time for "other things" lol. You will be full but tummy won't be uncomfortable.

Thursday's Treat...Grilled Salmon w/ Roasted Almonds, Cranberries & Avocado!!!

Ingredients
-salmon fillets
-bag of cranberries
-brown sugar
-bag of roasted almonds
-avocados
-salt
-pepper
-your fav seasoning
-cheese (optional)
-green salad


Adjust these measurements to amount of fillets you are making I was feeding four people so I used 8 fillets, 3 tbsps brown sugar, pinch of salt, 11/2 tbsps of Adobo, 1tbsp of pepper and mixed it all up in a medium bowl. The brown sugar becomes like a syrup which I love! I let it sit for about 10 minutes.


I plugged my George Forman handy grill (love this kitchen gadget!!!) warmed it up for 5 minutes it does it automatically then I set it for 6 minutes at 325. I sprayed grill with cooking spray and layed my pieces out. I added another three minutes and turned them over just because but you don't have to they were flaky and tasty at 6 minutes in.

I layed out some greens, then Salmon, handful of cranberries, handful of crushed roasted almonds, 1/2 slice of avocado cubed and handful of cubed mozzarella cheese. I drizzled some balsamic vinaigrette and done!!!

Tasty with some healthy elements and easy clean up. I made this the other night just in time to sit and watch Pretty Little Liars with my lil mama & friends. Hope you enjoy!

Always stress free xo
