One-Pan Meal in Less than 30 Minutes
Oct 21, 2016
Who doesn't like to get dinner on the table fast? Let's face it though it doesn't always happen depending on what you are preparing that night and what everyone's schedules are like.
Here is a recipe that is a one-pan dish that starts on the stove and finishes in the oven!
Fresh salmon is one of my favorite types of seafood to make because it is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health, are good for your brain, vision, joints, and immune system.
Your family will thank you for making such a delicious and healthy dish!
