Share this! Your friends will love it...

The hubby is trying to watch what he eats both for health reasons and to watch his weight. He loves salmon and it is good for him so I turn to it quite often for him as a protein. With this particular meal I added flavor with a Morrocan spice blend and tossed in some goji berries for their brightness. I love creating a healthy salmon dinner for him.

How Was the Healthy Salmon Recipe?

I am happy to report that the hubby enjoyed his dinner. The salmon had a bit of heat and the goji berries added just enough tartness to the meal. It made enough for two so he had leftovers for the next night. He was a happy man having salmon two nights in a row. This is another easy weeknight salmon dinner for sure.
