Christmas break was absolutely wonderful. We took it easy, relaxed, read, and spent a lot of time with family. No studying, no work – it was a dream! We spent a few days at my in-laws, and I am pretty sure that’s where I gained all that holiday weight! We had this salmon the night before we left, and I was seriously in heaven. I am a huge seafood fan, but I get a little nervous cooking it myself. This salmon was so easy – it seriously took 15 minutes total to get it from the grocery bag to the plate! It is my new favorite salmon dish, and I am sure it will be a regular in our meal rotation from now on. Plus, it’s low-cal and fish is one of the items listed on our “14 foods to help you lose weight” post.
