Note: This is my favorite dinner.
–salmon (size of 3 decks of cards, one-half pound)
–salt and pepper
–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).
