Dinner Ideas for the Lazy Cook

~Honey Chipotle Salmon Recipe



Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a great southern cook. It’s nothing for me to whip up a dinner of mac and cheese, fried cabbage, cornbread, and fried or baked chicken. Now I know thats not the healthiest sounding meal, but it’s damn good. I’m also good for meals like maple glazed salmon, Jasmine rice, and sauteed green beans. Although I can cook these meals and a multitude of others, I simply don’t like to. I’m not passionate about cooking, its just not something I derive a lot of pleasure from. That being said, I’ve become a great lazy cook. I’ve learned to prepare quick, delicious, healthy meals in thirty minutes or less.

So tonight, let’s whip up a meal of Honey Chipotle Salmon, a delicious medley of brown and wild rice, and roasted Brussels sprouts. Many grocery stores are offering fabulous fresh, frozen prepped meats. My favorite store for this is Sprouts. They have a line of prepared fish called Sea Cuisine. One pack serves two and is priced under $5.

  • Heat fish on a baking sheet for approximately 26 minutes at 375 degrees.
  • The rice medley is compliments of Uncle Ben’s. It heats in it’s own bag for only 90 seconds!
  • No need to be intimidated by fresh Brussels sprouts. Simply rinse and dry them, trim off a little bit of the stem and cut in half. Mix in a bowl with approximately 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, a tablespoon of minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet in a 350 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes. If you’re not a fan of Brussels sprouts, substitute with asparagus.

Be sure to let me know how you like this dinner idea and be on the lookout of other easy, delicious meals.
