Baked Salmon with Coconut Broth is Perfect for a Dinner Party
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could find a food truck that cooked salmon like our little Asian restaurant up the street? You walk up, put in your order, and in 5 minutes have a meal like this?
I made this for dinner a few nights ago and WOWSA, it was delicious!
Look at the freshness of these ingredients (not all ingredients, but still so pretty!) I’m really wanting to get baby bok choy planted in our garden!
One thing I’ve noticed about really healthy eating is that it takes lots of prep work and time to make.
So you if you don’t have the right ingredients, or time, it’s easy to reach for the wrong foods.
We’ve been on a roll in our kitchen as of late, in trying the whole living.com recipes. Many of you follow me on Instagram and have been seeing these little snippets of deliciousness. We’ll be able to pull the vegetables from our garden here in a few months for many of these recipes, and I can’t be more pleased. My husband works hard in the garden and he loves it when he sees his hours of work go into delicious recipes.
This one is so fantastic, I’m saving it to make for dinner guests this summer. I love everything about it. The look. The flavor. The presentation. All you have to do is get your prep work done with all the chopping, make the coconut sauce, and then pop the salmon in the oven while you sauté the veggies!
All dinner party qualities that I look for in a main dish to serve to my guests!
Now to plan the party … :)
Do you have any dinner parties on your calendar and, if so, what do you plan to cook as the main dish?
Happy Weekend, Friends!
