In an attempt to be more "heart healthy" we plan to add more fish to our diet. Truthfully, the only time we really have fish is when it's deep fried or pan fried. Millard's favorite is catfish, but we can't seem to find any here. Myself and Christian L-O-V-E seafood!! No matter what way it comes to us - we'll eat it!! So you can imagine Christian's excitement when he realized that he was having salmon 2 days in a row.
This was such a simple, quick meal to put together.
The Salmon was coated with Thai Kitchen Sweet Red Chili Sauce from Costco and baked in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes on parchment paper which made for easy clean-up.
Garlic Spinach was also super easy. I sauteed 1 bag of Costco Baby Spinach, 4 cloves of garlic, a little olive oil, a teeny bit of sea salt and pepper to taste. It took a matter of just a few minutes to cook the spinach down.
And Plain White Rice from the rice cooker. Yes, I know that I should've probably served it with a whole grain rice, but we really haven't acquired a taste for it yet.
The dish came out beautifully. It looked and tasted oh so good. Normally, the soy sauce is broke out for the rice, but a bite of the garlic spinach, salmon and rice together was absolutely delicious. Alexander skipped the salmon and spinach and opted for just the rice, but hey he's 3, and at least he ate something! We had this meal about 2 weeks ago and already the family are requesting it again. That's got to be good!
