Hi! I love to cook, but often don't have the luxury to make time and labor intensive meals, especially during the week. My goal for this thread is to share QUICK n healthy meals (snacks too) that I use or find out about with others. I would love to up the number of recipes I have in my arsenal to help stay on track, and continue my journey to eat healthy while getting super strong with Beachbody products!

Feel free to post any and all quick meal ideas HERE :-)

I love Salmon, so this was just a natural fit for me. emoticon

Bourbon-Glazed Salmon
Randy Mayor; Leigh Ann Ross

Ingredients
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons bourbon
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 (6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets
Cooking spray
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted

Preparation
Combine first 7 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add fish to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 1 1/2 hours, turning occasionally.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add fish and marinade to pan; cook fish 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Place 1 fillet on each of 4 plates; drizzle each serving with about 2 teaspoons sauce. Sprinkle each serving with 1 tablespoon green onions and 3/4 teaspoon sesame seeds.

Good to Know: Bring the bourbon from the bar and into the kitchen. The rich flavor of the bourbon brings out both the saltiness of the soy sauce and the sweetness of the brown sugar. For those following a heart-healthy diet, the omega-3 fatty acids and low sodium in this dish make it a health no-brainer.

ENJOY!
