Quick and easy weeknight dinners are always in high demand and these Roasted Garlic Salmon Bowls are bound to be one of your favorites. They bring restaurant flavor right into your own home kitchen.
This is one of those meals that you can prepare in no time with minimal prep work and cleaning. It’s quick to throw together and with the help of two special ingredients, this roasted salmon becomes something crave-worthy.
This recipe starts out like many others with a lean protein, veggies, and a whole grain. In this case, we start with some beautiful salmon brushed with lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and basil. On the same baking sheet, I add some fresh veggies. I reached for cherry tomatoes, zucchini, and red onions – but you could use any quick cooking veggies you have on hand.
While the salmon cooks, I love to make some whole grain farro on the side. If you haven’t had farro before, it’s a nutty fiber and protein packed grain that pairs great with salmon.
Now here is where we take this dish to the next level. It starts with the farro. Instead of cooking the farro in water, we take a restaurant trick and cook the farro with Knorr® Chicken Bouillon. This infuses so much deep and rich flavor into the farro. Trust me, once you taste this, you will start cooking all your grains with Knorr® Bouillon.
Then to really make this dish special, the entire dish is drizzled with Best Foods® Roasted Garlic Drizzle Sauce. This sauce is packed with garlic flavor and can be used as a drizzle, dressing, or dip. This stuff is so good, and the extra boost of warm garlic flavor truly makes this dish restaurant quality. Plus, with just 40 calories per serving, no high fructose corn syrup, and low added sugars – it’s a sauce you can use to transform any dish into something packed with flavor.
I made sure to head to my local Jon’s Fresh market to pick up all of the ingredients I needed for this dish. You can find the Roasted Garlic flavor along with the rest of the Best Foods® Drizzle sauce lineup right in the condiment aisle.
Meal Prep Ideas
This recipe is a great one to make over the weekend and have in the fridge for quick lunches or dinners. Here are a few tricks to make sure it keeps well in the fridge:
- Once the farro has finished cooking, lay it out on a sheet pan to cool more quickly. This prevents the farro from getting mushy.
- Let the salmon and vegetables cool completely before storing.
- Build individual salmon and veggie bowls. These will keep in the fridge for 3-4 days.
- When ready to serve, add the Best Foods® Roasted Garlic Drizzle Sauce.
- This meal can be eaten as a bowl or add it to a pile of greens and turn it into a salad with the Roasted Garlic Drizzle Sauce as the dressing. It’s also delish as a wrap.
