10 Quick And Healthy Salmon Recipes For Busy People

Salmon is a wonderful, delicious and nutritious source of protein. The benefits of salmon include maintaining a healthy heart, clear skin and memory boost. Salmon’s omega 3 fatty acid content help curb inflammation in your blood vessels, halting the build-up of plaque in blood vessels, and can assist in decreasing pain associated with arthritis.

So what are you waiting for? Get cooking with salmon. If you think salmon takes too long to prepare? Well do not think that anymore. Here is a collection of quick and healthy salmon recipes the whole family will enjoy!

1. Slow Baked Lemon and Thyme Salmon

    This may have a title of “slow bake”, but this delicious meal is ready in 30 minutes. The minute I am in the door, I prepare the salmon and then pop it into the oven. I then get changed and prepare the salad while it cooks. No frying means I do not have to stay standing at the stove top watching. Perfect.

    2. Asian Green Beans and Salmon Stir Fry

      I love this recipe due to the fact that it has so many vegetables added to the dish. Be sure to make extra so you have some to take to work for lunch the next day. This meal tastes even better the following day. Try broccoli to give this meal a superfood kick for something different.

      3. Teriyaki salmon

        One of my all time favourite salmon recipes. You can use honey instead of maple syrup if you wish. Instead of serving on a bed of pasta, try serving on a bed of zucchini spirals. There are many different ways to add variety to your meals.

        4. Poached Salmon

          Simmering the salmon allows for the spices and lemon to infuse the salmon and gives it a soft gentle texture. There is only one simple rule here, make sure you do not over cook the salmon. The benefits of poaching/simmering salmon is that the integrity of the fish is not lost if poached correctly leaving you with the most delicious piece of tender fish.

          5. Garlicky Broiled Salmon and Tomatoes

            It is hard to believe that this dish is ready in 15 minutes. Try it out this evening and you will be amazed at how quick this delicious recipe is. Add a green salad to this recipe to add more colour and bulk to your meal.

              This recipe may be a little longer, but 30 minutes if well worth the wait! Make up extra salsa and enjoy the following day.

              7. Salmon Fillet with Lemon Caper Butter

                Do not worry if you do not have any capers. This dish is just as delicious if you are short on them. Quick and easy, simplicity in action. I love the texture of the salmon using this recipe.

                  This recipe is a great way to us up any leftovers. Keep this one in mind next time you have some rice left after a meal. Chopsticks are negotiable.

                  9. Thai Baked Salmon Recipe

                    I love Thai food and this recipe ticks all the boxes for me except one tiny ingredient. Oil spray! Really. Just use the reliable olive oil for basting this wonderful dish instead of the suggested cooking spray.

                    10. One Sheet Pan Parmesan Crusted Salmon with Roasted Broccoli

                      How easy is this salmon recipe? The whole meal cooked in one pan. Now that is my idea of a quick, and nutritious meal. Broccoli and salmon are two of the best superfood combinations.

                      8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                      8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                      We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                      On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                      Advertising

                      Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                      1. Smart Door Locks

                      A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                      2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                      Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                      3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                      If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                      4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                      These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                      5. Nest Thermostat

                      This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                      6. Smart Lighting

                      Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                      7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                      Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                      8. Canary

                      This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
