Dinner in 20: Caprese & Salmon
If you haven't tried the salmon I talked about here, now's the time! It's a quick, yummy summer meal and it's on sale at Safeway this week, wild sockeye salmon for $7.99/lb. That's a good price for wild-caught, nutritious salmon.
Get your meal ready in 20 minutes:
Gather ingredients and mix up marinade, 2 minutes.
Rest salmon in 1/2 of the marinade. Meanwhile gather ingredients for caprese (mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, dressing) and start slicing tomatoes, 5 minutes.
Throw salmon on the grill for 4-5 minutes per side. Meanwhile, finish slicing caprese ingredients and prepare by arranging mozzarella and tomato slices on plate, top with chopped basil & caprese dressing or balsamic vinegar & olive oil. Plate salmon and top with remaining marinade, 9-10 minutes.
Dinner's ready in 20 (or less)!
