Salmon with Vegetables

I enjoy doing several things in my spare time, one of which is cooking. From what I have learned, it is important to keep some sort of record- via recipe or photos- of what you have cooked to share with others.

Below is one of my favorite dishes. It's healthy and full of vegetables and protein.

Salmon with Spring Mix Salad, Cubed Sweet Potatoes, Regular Potatoes, Diced Red Bell Peppers & Onions, Black Beans & Corn, and Green Beans

I started cooking the salmon in olive oil. I then added some Bragg's seasoning, which gives excellent flavor. It's full of herbs and is absolutely salt-free.

Some of the herbs include: Rosemary, garlic, sage, parsley, thyme, etc.

This is great for anyone with a sodium-restricted diet. However, when cooking with frozen or fresh meats, be sure to check the ingredients, along with the sodium content.

You can add your favorite glaze to the salmon and vegetables.

Here are some ideas to making this dish using different glazes & sauces:
1.) Honey-Lemon - a mixture of lemon juice, honey, black pepper, olive oil, diced onions & garlic (or onion and garlic seasoning)
2.) Ranch (use any ranch dressing)
3.) Teriyaki sauce
4.) Bar-B-Que sauce

This is a picture of the finished dish to the right. You can add your favorite salad dressing or vinaigrette. I added some croutons, tomatoes, and shredded parmesan cheese.

To make it easier, I usually like to cook with frozen vegetables. Since it's frozen, you can keep it longer in your freezer, and not have to worry about cooking the food right away as with fresh produce, unless you are making salads, etc.

Always remember to have fun and enjoy what you create!
