Happy Monday guys and gals. It's week two of the new year and I know most of you have committed to eating healthier, or lighter, or are doing Whole 30, or Weight Watchers or something to that effect. And I also know that it can be intimidating and you run out of ideas and the thoughts of weeknight healthy meals can be daunting so I am here to help you. After the holidays I can tell you that me and my family were more than ready to get back into our routine in more than one ways, but mostly in our diet! Give me all of the healthy foods please and give them to me now! Who is with me? My quick and easy Asian Salmon Packets are going to be your new favorite weeknight meal that your whole family will approve of!
I try to incorporate salmon into our diets at least once a week and switching up the recipes as much as possible is key so that no one gets tired of the same old thing! Luckily my kiddo likes salmon most days, but his favorite flavors happen to be anything Asian inspired. This salmon packets are my new fave way to prepare the fish because not only does it taste amazing, but your whole meal is ready at the same time and clean up couldn't be any easier! Sometimes I serve it all over basmati or jasmine rice, and other times, when I am trying to cut the carbs, I just eat it as is! Either way this meal is seriously delicious and you are going to love it.
Check out my how-to video over on Facebook or Instagram and see just how easy this recipe truly is! I cannot wait for you all to give this recipe a try and report back. You will be wondering why you haven't you been cooking your salmon like this all along!
