Simple dinners are the name of the game in most households, including this one.  

While I love to cook, the dinner hour is always a mix of hungry kids, dishes, a race to get a good meal on the table.  A meal that Brady and I like, and the girls will eat is a double bonus. 

This dinner fits all criteria.  

It’s quick to make, made of whole foods, has tons of flavor and makes everyone happy.  

Simple Salmon Dinner 

Garlic-Ginger Salmon

  • 3 pieces of fresh salmon
  • 2 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1/2 c. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. minced fresh ginger 

Pour marinade over salmon and refrigerate. Put fillets in the oven at 425 for 10-15 minutes depending on how big then are.  

Tahini Broccoli Slaw  – this awesome and easy recipe

Brown Rice

Steamed Spinach with Sesame Oil

That’s it!


For the kids, I served them a few pieces of spinach (which they were not wild about, so I gave them raw cucumber), salmon and brown rice.  

Easy dinners like this make more time for being silly.
