Easy Weekly Meal Prep: Lemon Salmon, Brussels Sprouts, & Quinoa
This week’s meal prep was rather tasty and a favorite of mine! I decided to do a Lemon Pepper Salmon with brussels sprouts and quinoa. The meal was absolutely healthy and filling!
All you need to make this meal is:
- Brussels Sprouts
- 1 large filet of salmon (I use frozen)
- 1 lemon
- 1 box of Near East Quinoa blend (or you can make your own-whatever)
The salmon was easy to prep. All you needed to do was lay the fish flat on a baking sheet and cut slices of lemon to be placed on top of the salmon. Sprinkle with pepper, salt, red pepper, and garlic powder to taste. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.
To prep your brussels, cut them into halves and peel the outer layers off. These layers tend to be a bit bitter to taste so I always peel mine.
I throw my brussels sprouts halves into a bowl and mix them with 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, salt, Hot Shot blend, and garlic powder. This is my personal favorite way of seasoning them!
I sautee them in a pan for about 15 minutes on medium heat and set aside to cool. While those are cooling, make your quinoa blend according to the boxed directions and distribute all foods evenly between your meal prep containers for the week.
If you are worried about the freshness of your fish, simply freeze half of your containers.
Mmmmm the smell will most definitely make you a bit hungry!
