Menu Plan Monday - February 7

We are still trying to eat healthy meals this week.  Here is our menu:

Monday:  Balsamic Salmon Salad
Tuesday:  Vegetable Soup (with carrot juice as the base)
Wednesday:  Chicken Fajitas
Thursday:  Crunchy Taco Salad
Friday:  Tuna Casserole

Here is the recipe for the Balsamic Salmon Salad:

Servings: 2 (we get 3 out of it)
Preparation Time: 30 min

2 portions new potatoes, cubed
1 Tbsp teriyaki marinade
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp fresh parsley, minced
2 portions salmon fillets (about 12 oz)
4 cups mixed salad greens
1 Tbsp fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 Tbsp fresh oregano leaves, chopped
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 lemon, halved
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Steam cubed new potatoes in a covered saucepan until tender, approx 20 min.  While potatoes are cooking, mix teriyaki marinade, garlic, and parsley in a small bowl. 

Preheat broiler.  Lightly coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.  Place salmon fillets on the pan, skin side down, and brush with teriyaki marinade. 

Broil salmon approx 6 inches from the broiler until the fish is cooked through and flakes with a fork, about 8-10 min. 

While salmon in cooking, combine salad greens, basil, oregano, olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a medium bowl and toss.  Divide tossed salad between two separate plates.  Layer portions of potatoes and broiled salmon fillets over salad greens. 

Top salmon and salad with a squeeze on lemon and freshly ground black pepper.  ENJOY!

The Adventurer

We love salmon and this is going in my recipe box to try this week. Sounds delicious!


This is such a great idea! I wish we could plan out a menu for the week, and eat meals like this. My husband usually stops by the grocery store on his way home to buy whatever he is going to make for dinner that night. We definitely need to get more organized and try to plan ahead. It sounds like you guys will be eating good this week! :-D
