How to Meal Prep Salmon

Meal prepping is becoming more and more common as we approach 2019. People are preparing their meals ahead of time on a weekly basis for a variety of reasons. Some do it to lose weight, some do it to gain weight, and some do it solely for the convenience of having their meals ready to eat on a daily basis. Whatever the reason may be, meal prepping has become very popular. Let’s discuss how to meal prep salmon for all the seafood lovers!

The first step is to gather all your ingredients. You’ll want to be sure you get the main ingredient (the salmon!) as well as the spices you wish to cook with and your sides. A popular list of ingredients to cook salmon, especially when meal prepping, includes:

  1. Salmon
  2. Lemon juice
  3. Desired spice rub
  4. Asparagus and/or green beans
  5. Rice

You have all the freedom to choose your desired spices and sides, but the above short list is a quick guide to get you going. Check out a wonderful recipe at https://www.asweetpeachef.com/pan-fried-salmon/ for a complete step-by-step recipe to cook a delicious salmon dish that also works great when meal prepping.

A key tip to meal prepping salmon is frying it in a pan, but not cooking it all the way through. Salmon, and fish in general, is often eaten undercooked. If you refrain from cooking the salmon all the way through the first time, then it won’t be overcooked when you reheat it.

If you haven’t joined the meal prepping trend yet, this is a great, easy way to get started. Give it a shot and enjoy!
