I love to cook but I also love to eat healthy…sometimes coming up with the right combination can be tricky… this is a recipe I put together for my Mom and I one night….keeping it around 300 calories per serving (came to 311.5 calories for total meal – I came pretty close!) Recipe is broken down for one serving – multiply to create additional servings.

Ingredients –

  • 3 oz salmon fillet
  • 1/2 c broccoli florets
  • 1/2 medium tomatillo
  • 1 Tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/3 medium potato
  • Blackening Seasoning

Directions –

  1. Heat  pan to medium-high heat and spray pan with Pam. Slice potato into thin slices. Place potato slices into pan and sprinkle with Blackening Seasoning. Cook until tender and then remove from heat.
  2. Meanwhile, dice tomatillo. Toss tomatillo, chopped onion in small bowl with oil and 1/2 tsp of soy sauce.
  3. Steam broccoli.
  4. While potatoes are cooking, heat second pan to medium heat and spray with Pam. Place salmon fillet in pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook about 5 minutes and then drizzle remaining 1/2 tsp soy sauce on top of salmon. Continue cooking salmon until just about done, then top with tomatillo and onion. Cook until at desired doneness.
  5. Serve salmon with potatoes and broccoli.
