It’s currently 6:30pm and I’ve been working on dinner since 4pm. I enjoy cooking, especially when I have a podcast or Pandora radio blasting, but sometimes I want a healthy, fresh recipe that doesn’t take up my whole evening!
That’s where these meals come in! Check out these quick and easy paleo dinner recipes:
Salmon always makes for an easy baked fish recipe! We’ve had salmon for dinner three times in the last month and a half. It’s really simple to prepare, and it takes less than 20 minutes to cook!
It’s best to keep it simple when it comes to salmon. A little butter, fresh herbs, and lemon juice are all you really need. I’ve used a few different recipes, but there are two things I do the same way each time:
- Make small, shallow slices along the filet. Squeeze lemon juice over the filets.
- Cook the salmon at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. Then, turn the oven to broil and cook for 3 more minutes.
With those two tips, every recipe I’ve tried has been absolutely delicious!
Pesto Chicken Salad
You can make this pesto chicken salad recipe with a rotisserie chicken or freshly baked chicken. I usually season 1 lb of chicken breasts with salt and pepper, and then bake them at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
Then, I shred the chicken and cover it with Alessi Pesto (my favorite brand made with extra virgin olive oil). Throw the pesto chicken on top of a salad full of mixed greens and chopped veggies!
Southern Cabbage Recipe
This is a fatty meal (don’t be afraid!) that’s packed with veggies! It takes less than 30 minutes, and it can be your meal or a side dish. You can get the recipe here!
You can easily adapt this recipe to your needs/preferences. I think next time I’m going to add broccoli :)
Frittatas are the answer to just about everything. Throw scrambled eggs on any ingredient you can think of, and the result will probably be awesome!
