Panko-Crusted Asian Salmon
with Mushrooms, Okra, Orzo and Ginger
Another meal we invented! Panko bread crumbs are GREAT for baking on fish and they form a really nice crunchy crust. For this salmon (frozen from Trader’s Joes) we marinated him in a little soy sauce, sesame oil and brown sugar for about an hour. Then we packed on the crumbs and baked at 400* for about 15 minutes.
On the side we cooked 4 oz of orzo and sauteed some button mushrooms and fresh okra in a little more soy sauce (always use low-sodium!) and a small amount of maple syrup. Then we mixed them all together:
And I added a little pickled ginger on the side! We have a jar of this and always forget to use it. I LOVE pickled ginger
All together for ~471 kcal. To keep the calories lower, you could use half the orzo and double up on the veggies. Broccoli would have been a good addition!
1/2 a cup of hemp granola, a few Trader Joe’s High Fiber O’s with a bit of skim milk. I wanted Peppermint ice cream, but thought this would be a better choice since I hate a lot of junk (brittle) last night. Even though this ended up being more calories! It felt healthier.
See you in the AM!
