Today’s Menu: Baked Atlantic Salmon w/ Glazed Carrots, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread

Baked Salmon 006

Another sunny and beautiful Winter’s day out again today. From what they say it’s one of our last for a while. Rain and snow starting tomorrow afternoon for at least 5 – 6 days, BLAH! While at Kroger yesterday they had all their Salmon on sale and ended up with a beautiful North Atlantic Salmon fillet that I had them slice into 3 pieces. For dinner I prepared Baked Atlantic Salmon w/ Glazed Carrots, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread.

To prepare the Salmon I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I first brushed a bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on the fillet and then seasoned it with Dill and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then baked it for 12 minutes, fork tender. The Salmon was delicious and full of flavor. Salmon is so filling because it’s so meaty. At the end of the post I left some info about Salmon.

For side dishes I had Green Giant Honey Glazed Carrots, Green Beans, and Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Green Giant Carrots are prepared by microwaving for 7 minutes. The Honey Glaze on the Carrots is fantastic, and it’s only 90 calories per serving and there is 2 servings per package. Along with the Carrots I had a single serving can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Pan Seared Sockeye Salmon and Basil Pesto w/ Green Beans, Sweet Corn, and Whole Grain Bread

I had a Pan Seared Sockeye Salmon and Basil Pesto with a Lemon Wedge. I seasoned the Salmon with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, McCormick Grinder Black Peppercorn, and Parsley. I then pan seared with Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. When done I topped it with Basil Pesto and a Lemon Wedge. The Salmon contains those healthy omega-3′s that we need to be incorporating into our diet!

For sides I had Green Beans and Sweet Corn along with Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I tried a can of Del Monte Summer Crisp Whole Kernal Golden Sweet Corn and loved it! Great flavor and only 80 calories and 16 carbs. The Del Monte Cut Green beans are 20 calories and 5 carbs and the Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread 80 calories and 16 carbs. So for 3 sides it’s only a total of 180 calories and 37 carbs! Not bad at all. For dessert later a Mini Banana Split. Using a Mini Banana, Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream, Smucker’s Sugar Free Hot Fudge Chocolate Topping, and a Tablespoon of Cool Whip Free. If you crave one at least make it as low calorie and low carb as you can.

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Potatoes Au Gratin, Grilled Asparagus, and Whole Grain Bread

What a dinner! I purchased a large Sockeye Salmon fillet that I cut into 4 pieces, having 1 for dinner and freezing the other 3. I brushed the Salmon with some fresh Lemon Juice to start. I then took about 1 oz. of Splenda Brown Sugar and 2 oz. of Light Soy Sauce and mixed the two together in a small bowl. Then I brushed the Sauce over the fillet evenly. I then baked the Salmon at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. I’ll leave the Ingredients at the end of the post. The Soy Sauce and Brown Sugar makes a fantastic great tasting Sauce.

As sides I had Grilled Asparagus Spears and Idahoan Potatoes Au Gratin. I had never tried these before and I was really looking forward to it. I love Potatoes Au Gratin and hadn’t had them in forever. They were easy to fix and turned out delicious! The box contains your Potatoes and Sauce. You just add Water, 3/4 Cup 2% Milk and 1 1/2 Tablespoon of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. You can either bake it or cook it on stove top. I baked mine to give it a Golden Browning. Baked it for 25 minutes at 450 degrees. They are 160 Calories and 20 carbs as fixed by the directions but I substituted the Milk for 2% Milk and Butter with the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to cut back on both the calories and carbs. Along with the Asparagus and Potatoes I had Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert latera Yoplait Delight 100 Calorie Parfait.
