15 minute dinner {broiled salmon + spring mix salad}

This dinner is an absolute staple in my household. It’s healthy, satisfying and only takes 15 minutes to put together. The broiled salmon gives you omega 3 fatty acids and protein. The spring mix adds fiber and vitamin A and you get more omega 3’s, B vitamins and vitamin E from the pine nuts.

One Plate

Here’s how to put together this quick and delicious meal.

Raw salmon

Place two servings of salmon into an aluminum foil wrapped baking dish. Then brush the salmon with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, paprika, and a little bit of garlic powder.

 Seasoned Salmon

Place the baking dish on the highest oven rack directly under the broiler. Your salmon should be finished in 7-10 minutes. While it’s broiling, put together your salad.

Spring Mix

{3 cups of spring mix}

Goat Cheese

{1/2 tbsp of crumbly goat cheese}

Dried Cranberries

{1/2 tbsp of dried cranberries}

Pine Nuts + Cranberry Vinagrette

{sprinkled with pine nuts and a little cranberry vinaigrette}

After 7-10 minutes or when your salmon is easily flaked with a fork, pull it from the broiler.

Finished broiling Salmon

Let it rest for two minutes and then plate it.

Two Plates

That’s all there is to it. A simple and pretty dinner for two in 15 minutes.

    • Hi Audra! I must say that after a little practice, cooking salmon is even easier than chicken. With chicken, I’m always worried about getting the internal temperature over 180 while still keeping it moist. Salmon is pretty forgiving. Thanks for commenting and happy cooking!
