For every busy night on the go there is a perfect 30-minute meal solution. This easy sesame teriyaki salmon in foil is incredibly moist and flavorful. Toss it in this asian style sauce, set it and forget it. Enjoy over rice and pea shoots.
Greetings! Did you enjoy the long weekend? My family and I were blessed to spend some amazing time with our friends at their lake house in New Hampshire. We spent most our time in the water, by the fire and simply relaxing! I am so grateful for these few days, that allowed us to stay together and have fun. Of course we ate a lot too, but as a self-proclaimed foodie, I couldn’t imagine fun without food.
We also watched a few episodes of the show Naked and Afraid, which is so unusual of me as I much prefer to occupy my time with other things. However the crowd was watching and I couldn’t help but to feed my curiosity as to why in the world would someone want to sign up for starvation and discomfort all while wearing your birthday suit under the watchful eyes of America (if not the world) (?!) As if the show itself wasn’t entertaining enough, add to the crowd the biggest eater I know, my guy, the one and only Mr. Protein, to share his remarks on how he wouldn’t survive a half day without his breaded chicken. Undoubtedly any of us would have a better chance surviving starvation for 21 days, including the children.
A long weekend of un-routinely activities will almost always lead to a tiring first day back to school and work. In fact, as I work on this post I am pleasantly inspired by the sound of birds singing and the swish of the wind rather than my four noisy kids distressing over homework. That’s how tired they are! Which is why I love this 30 minute Salmon in foil dish.
I would say that at my house we probably eat salmon 2-3 per week. I am lucky enough that all of my kids like this super-healthy fish. The trick is to try new ways to cook and serve salmon so it doesn’t become boring. Honestly, I will eat salmon no matter the flavor or method of cooking, however I do enjoy changing things up, and this recipe is my latest favorite.
I love this sesame teriyaki salmon recipe because is very easy to prepare and yet super flavorful. I find that quite often a flavorful recipe might require a lot of cooking time, multiple steps and far too many ingredients. This teriyaki salmon recipe is a simple, easy and delicious recipe that requires few ingredients, perfect for a busy week night. Whether my family and I are tired and need extra time to rest or we are running around to meet schedules and obligations, this is a great 30 minute nutritional meal that I can always rely on.
You can bet that choosing a 30-minute recipe for those busy weeknights is absolutely the way to go. Our healthy doesn’t have to be compromised because we need to bring our kiddos to the field 3x week, neither does it need to be by replacing it with packaged or instant “food”. This is my quick meal solution when having a lack of time or interest in being in the kitchen for longer than I need to be, while still focusing on my family’s health.
Another great 30-miunte meal for you to try is my Classic Chicken Broccoli Pasta, which is always a fun dish for the kids.
