grilled salmon and mixed vegetables

Grilled salmon with mixed veg

A healthy, 5-minutes to ready meal.

An even quicker variation is to put the vegetables at the bottom of a microwave-safe dish with a splash of water, place the salmon on top with a twist of pepper, cover and microwave.

Use odd leftover vegetables to make the most out of what you have in stock.
