Salmon, Orzo, and Cauliflower Tonight – Yum!

We made a simple but delicious dinner tonight!

  • Baked salmon, with light salt and pepper and a drizzle of honey.
  • Roasted cauliflower (one of our FAVORITE ways to prepare cauliflower). Just olive oil and kosher salt.
  • Asparagus orzo. Usually I make this with zucchini and summer squash, but I really felt like asparagus tonight. Sauteed some shallots and chopped fresh asparagus in a little butter, added orzo and toasted for a minute or two. Added a little white wine, low sodium chicken broth, and let simmer for about 15 minutes. Tossed in some fresh shredded parmesan cheese. Sooooo good! Happy to have another veggie orzo to rotate in.

Just a quick post but I wanted to share a recap of our dinner! We really need to add more salmon into our diet. We love it so much… don’t know why we ever backed away from making it. We used to have it once a week when we lived in Brooklyn and could pick up a filet on the way home from the subway. Buying it fresh is so important. We’ll need to make more of an effort to incorporate it into our weekly planning.

That’s it for today!
