D's Dish On Healthy Eating

Nutritious Should be Delicious!

REAL MEALS: Salmon burger with grilled veggies and lemon pepper dill aioli

Leave a comment

Just a little blerp on what real meals look like on the fly. Real wholesome and nourishing ingredients, real simple, and really delicious. Many recipes take a lot of time and effort to shop, prep and complete numerous steps.  Obviously that is not conducive to most of our busy lifestyles. What does good nutrition look like on a daily basis? What types of healthy meals can be thrown together quickly with staples you have stocked in your fridge, freezer and pantry; or a quick trip to the store? Lunch the other day:


Prep time: 3 minutes

Cook time: 7 minutes

Total time: 10 minutes!


Trader joes salmon burger (frozen)

Red pepper cut in 1″ chunks

Zuchini sliced and cut in halves

Baby asparagus

Olive oil for pan

Crumbled gorgonzola and fresh ground pepper to taste

For the aioli (per serving): 1Tbsp mayonnaise, 1 tsp lemon juice, dash of ground pepper, one sprig of dill chopped


Heat two pans with olive oil.  Add salmon burgers to one and veggies to the other.  Cook burgers about 3 minutes on each side while stir frying veggies. Mix aloe.  Plate burgers and veggies. Top burgers with aioli.  Enjoy!

Notes: I love stocking frozen protein sources for a quick meal. Other good options are crab cakes, veggie burgers, chicken breasts, turkey burgers, bison burgers, falafel. Herb gardens are a quick way to flavor up most meals.  See Grow Your Health: Planting a Summer Herb Garden for tips on how.
