Both Jasper and I would like to get in better shape, so we are thinking more about healthy options for dinner. I've decided that we should try to fit a fish dish in each week, which will most likely be salmon (it's a super food, and heck - it's delicious!).
I started this new routine off with an easy and solid recipe for Panko Crusted Salmon. Dijon mustard, lemon, and parsley are simple ingredients that give a ton of flavor. And the panko crumbs make for a perfect crunchy topping.
Shrimp cooks very quickly, so it is great to use when you need dinner in a hurry. Baking shrimp with wine and garlic adds a lot of flavor while cutting down on active prep work.
