Oh Yeah Omegas! Salmon, Sweet Potatoes, and Baby Kale Salad.

Omega and nutrient rich dinner for 2 in under 30 minutes with a quick and easy clean up.  Does it get any better?  This meal is quick, tasty , full of omega-3, fiber, vitamins A, E, and Iron.  Creating a meal in 30 minutes works with a busy schedule.  You’ll wait that long for take out, delivery or dining in at the random restaurant. The biggest challenge is getting to the market to shop for the food.  Luckily almost every market in Manhattan delivers if you don’t have the time to shop.  If you don’t like Salmon shame on you.. . only kidding, use a different fish.

For this meal I picked up everything at Whole Foods. You’ll need.

  •  1.5 pounds Alaskan Salmon or whatever looks the best.
  • A bag of frozen chopped sweet potatoes (or a chopped sweet potato)
  • Baby Kale (pre packaged lettuce)
  • Lemon
  • Fresh or Dried Rosemary
  • Pepper, Salt, Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar
  • Cookie sheet
  • Aluminum foil

The how to…

  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees.  I use the confection setting.
  2. Grab your salmon, place it on a sheet of aluminum foil, drizzle it with little olive oil (I used tuscan herb oil from the Chelsea Market.), season with ground pepper, a little salt, and rosemary.
  3. Slice your lemon, squeeze the juice on the salmon, and place the slices on the fish.
  4. Open your bag of sweet potatoes, add a tsp of olive oil and ground pepper.  Shake up the bag to coat the potatoes.  Place the potatoes on foil on top of the cookie sheet.
  5. Place both the salmon and the potatoes in the oven for 20 minutes
  6. Put your baby kale in a bowl and drizzle a little balsamic on top (I used vanilla fig balsamic from the Larchmont Farmers Market in L.A.).  Toss the kale and vinegar.
  7. Take the salmon out of the oven, plate it, and enjoy!
