Quick and Easy Meals: Steamed Vegetables and Asian Style Salmon

Most of us are in need of quick and easy meals throughout the week. Often we get caught up with the idea that people need to spend hours in the kitchen to prepare a ‘healthy’ meal. The good news is that you don’t need to!

There’s so many food products out there to make your life easier, especially mid-week.
Here’s a favourite that I cook at least once week. With easy to prep veges and microwave rice, it’s a mid-week life saver.
