It was a fantastic coincidence that it was Arizona’s restaurant week during our visit. As a result, we ate tons of different food in Scottsdale – so much of it was amazing (if you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know this). But, it’s no coincidence that since my return to the east coast, I’ve been craving southwest food in a big way. So last night I recreated some of the flavors I was already missing with roasted poblano turkey burgers and a black bean and corn 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.
I love meals that have protein, vegetables and carbohydrates all in one dish. This dinner is hearty, simple and requires hardly any clean up. It does take some time, but most of the time is just the chicken and veggies baking in the oven. As an added bonus, this recipe serves four and costs under $10.
Last night I had a serious hankering for some omega-3s. While I’m much like a bear in that I can eat salmon in most any form, at most any time, for most any meal, my husband has a normal human-level of interest in salmon and was frankly getting bored with our standard “salt, pepper, garlic, olive oil slathered slab of salmon.” So, I did what I usually do when I’m looking for a new recipe that I don’t have time to tinker with – I googled “Ina Garten (insert main ingredient here.)” If ever I am looking for a sure fire recipe on short notice, Ina rarely lets me down.
