Lately I have really been enjoying this super easy and satisfying meal that I have been prepping for myself.
Fresh Salmon baked with butter, lemon, herbs, & plenty of garlic! On top of a bed of baby arugula dressed with extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, & a pinch of salt and pepper. With a side of 90 second brown rice mixture drizzled with Sriracha! You’re going to love this!
This is my salmon after it has baked at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 25 minutes.
To prepare it I preheated my oven, and got two pieces of aluminum foil big enough that I could place the salmon into the center and wrap all of the edges up to form an enclosed little dome shape around. I spread organic butter on the foil before placing the salmon on top.
I generously seasoned the fish with garlic salt, fresh garlic, & cracked black pepper. I then placed two lemon slices on top and folded up the edges to create my “foil boat” and popped it into the oven.
While the salmon was baking I began to prep the rest of the meal.
Above is the rice and greens that I used. Seeds of Change 90 second rice (you could use any quick rice brand or flavor that you like!) I love arugula with salmon and it’s just so good for you!
I am using these Rubbermaid Take Along Tupperware with two sections.
I start with the arugula and the secret is to lightly dress it (you can also use this same dressing for arugula that you put on top of pizza after it has baked! So yum!) Extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, s&p is all you need & it makes such a difference!
Once you are finished with the arugula, the rice should be finished in the microwave.
Just put half in each container and I decided to drizzle a little sriracha on mine!
Now, you just have to wait a few more minutes for the salmon to finish baking and add that on top of your rice and Voila! You have just prepped two delicious and healthy meals!
Here is the salmon before I closed the foil and baked it.
The foil “boat” 😊
I had about a 9oz. filet. I cut it horizontally and put half in each container.
It is so great to have these couple of meals prepped and ready to go in my fridge each week! They stay fresh for a few days and heat up in about one minute in the microwave or you could even eat it cold!
