Recipe: Sautéed Salmon with Garden Veggies

Our amazing dinner last night:  sautéed salmon with garden veggies (kale, spinach, green bell pepper, and yellow summer squash).

-Zest and juice of 2 lemons
-3 tablespoons olive oil
-1/4 cup water
-3 garlic cloves, finely minced
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp pepper
-2 salmon fillets
-4 summer squash, sliced
-2 cups of mixed greens, chopped (kale & spinach)
-1 green bell pepper, diced

I just added all of the ingredients listed above in a sauté pan, and cooked until the vegetables were tender and the salmon was light and flaky.  So easy and so amazingly tasty…this is definitely going to become a regular on the menu at our house!  The best part was that I was able to harvest all of the vegetables from our garden. 🙂  An added bonus:  I recently read that salmon and kale when paired together are like “companion planting” for cooking…when you eat them together, they help bring out more nutrients in the other, making the meal even healthier!


Easy Green Smoothie Recipe

Super easy recipe for my favorite green veggie juice!  All you need is:

-1 banana
-2 cups mixed leafy greens (I used a mix of spinach, kale & arugula since that is what I have tons of in my garden)
-juice from 2 oranges

Just throw everything in a blender until liquified, then chill & enjoy!
