A Simple Dinner (Encore) DILLED SALMON / BROCCOLI WITH HOT SAUCE / BAKED POTATO WITH YOGURT & BUTTER

Note:  This is my favorite dinner.

–salmon (size of 3 decks of cards, one-half pound)

–dill

–salt and pepper

–olive oil

–broccoli (1 stalk, fresh)

–hot sauce (like Tabasco)

–potatoes (2, red, medium)

–yogurt (non-fat, plain)

–Promise Activ margarine (heart-healthy)

1 – Scrub the potato skins, pierce all around with a fork, and place in the microwave.  Cook on high for 5 minutes; then turn the potatoes over and cook on high for another 5 minutes.  When finished, don’t open immediately (to preserve warmth)

2 – Place salmon in a covered baking dish with a little water.  Season with salt, pepper, dill, and olive oil.  Set aside.

3 – Chop off the stalk of the broccoli, leaving the stems and florets.  Break apart the stems and florets.  Place in a covered baking dish.  Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil.   Microwave on high for 3 minutes (1 minute longer for more tender broccoli).

4 – Microwave the salmon on high for 4 and one-half minutes.  When finished, test the center to be sure that salmon is done; if not, return to the microwave for another 1 minute on high.

5 – Serve the dinner hot:  salmon, potatoes (with yogurt and margarine), and broccoli (with hot sauce).

–salmon adapted from Real Simple; other recipes original.
