Salmon and side
I made salmon last night. We really love salmon. The fish was very simple.
2 cloves of garlic, diced
2 limes, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
Mix together, pour over fish, add more sliced limes to the top and bake at 400 for about 12 minutes, depending on thickness.
The side dish was a bit more involved, but still very simple and quick to make, the whole thing took less than 30 minutes. I had previously cooked a pot of navy beans and also had precooked millet and quinoa in the fridge from dinner the night before. You could use canned beans but having the grains already cooked is a huge time saver!
To a hot pan add:
1 clove garlic, finely diced
4 stalks of kale, stems removed, pieces torn
Saute until kale is a beautiful bright green. Add:
Left over grains
Precooked beans, with juice (about 1/2 cup)
Simmer on low, season with coriander and oregano. Remove from heat and add one diced tomato.
