Under 30 Minutes: Salmon with Pineapple-Pomegranate Salsa

If you’re looking for a dinner idea under 30 minutes, try Salmon with Pineapple-Pomegranate Salsa. This main dish is incredibly heart-healthy, pretty and filled with great flavors. This salmon recipe is truly one of my favorites. Start simply by combining maple syrup and Dijon and brushing the mixture over the fish. Top it with the easy, fresh Pineapple Salsa combination made with chopped fresh pineapple, fresh cilantro, lime juice and pomegranate seeds. When pomegranate seeds are out of season, you can substitute fresh blueberries or dried cherries. Feel free to also grill the salmon when grilling season rolls around. Enjoy this dish for a weeknight or weekend, and serve it with your favorite rice and a mixed green salad.

Low-Fat & High Flavor: Edamame Salsa

If you’re looking for a quick appetizer or awesome side to go with fish, chicken, turkey or pork, look no further than this Edamame Salsa. Edamame are so fresh, flavorful and low in calories and fat, but they are also high in protein, fiber and a good source of calcium. I love cooking with edamame because my 3 kids love them. This is just one simple way to serve them. See my recipe for Edamame Corn Salad which was featured this summer in the Birmingham Magazine and has been a top popular post on this site.
