Skillet Salmon and Greens

Hey, What’s Cookin’?

Here’s a healthy dish suitable for a quick weekday meal. Skillet Salmon and Greens gives you a lots of protein, fiber, and most of all, FLAVOR!

I recommend keeping several bags of cauliflower rice and mashed cauliflower in the freezer at all times. Nothing is quicker than cooking up frozen cauliflower rice!  It’s incredibly convenient, really delicious, and makes it easier to keep your dietary goals on track.

Although the instructions look lengthy, this recipe should take less than 15 minutes of cooking time, and be on the table in 35 minutes or less.
