This Salmon Dinner Bowl recipe is the perfect healthy dinner for the whole family. It’s fast to prepare, delicious and above all kids love it. There is plenty of evening when we get home after school activities or summer playdates that just the thought of cooking dinner gets me tired. I just don’t want to order fast food either. That’s when I usually plan for this Salmon Dinner Bowl. By the time kids wash their hands and change their clothes, i almost have dinner ready. It’s a Win, Win for mom:). We all eat healthy with not much effort!!
Why is Salmon Healthy?
Salmon is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and DHA. This is great, especially for the kids since they need fatty acids and DHA for their developing brains. Kids also are very active, a lot more than adults so salmon provides them with healthy calorific food. Salmon is impressive for its other nutrients as well: high protein value, high antioxidants quantities and a great source of several vitamins.
Salmon Bowl Dinner Recipe Preparation
Here are several notes about the recipe and some adjustments you can make. Feel free to customize to the needs of your family:
I try to buy fresh salmon when possible, otherwise if frozen let it thaw for several hours.
There are times I would make a big salad and toss it. Then I would separate into individual bowls before I add the salmon in. However, if I’m chopping in a hurry, I would chop and add into each bowl and let my family members pour as much olive oil/vinegar they want into their bowls once we are sitting down.
Boil corn ahead of time and let it cool.
My kids sometimes like rice in this dinner bowl, so i would add less salad in their bowls and a small serving of this rice as a side dish.
Recipe instructions below show how to make this salmon in a skillet, but you can also make it in the toaster oven if you have a small glass baking dish. Actually, a toaster oven is one of my favorite kitchen appliances to use, as I have also explained in this blogger roundup. It takes just about 15 minutes with pre-heated toaster oven at 400 degrees.
Another reason I love dinner bowls is that I can swap ingredients and use leftovers. One likes rice, one wants double avocado, one doesn’t want avocado, etc, etc. Dinner bowls are customizable and make for happy dinners:)
