MEAL PREP RECIPE
Total meal prep time: 1 hour and 15 minutes maximum
Makes 2-4 meals (depending on starting ingredient quantities and serving portions)
2 Medium to Large Sweet Potatoes
1 Bunch Organic Asparagus
2 Filets Wild Caught Salmon
Garlic (minced or cloves)
Salt and Pepper
Old Bay Seasoning (or fish seasoning of choice)
Garlic Powder, Cumin, and Paprika
Cute meal prep containers ;)
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F.
As it heats, wash and scrub sweet potatoes. Cube them. You can leave the skin on or off, it's up to you).
Toss the sweet potato cubes in a bowl with avocado oil (just enough to coat them fully), a dash of salt and pepper, and 1/2 tsp. each of the spices (garlic powder, cumin, and paprika). You could also try adding a dash of chipotle powder for a little heat!
Spread coated cubes on a parchment or foil lined baking pan or baking sheet for easy clean up. Try to make sure they are evenly spaced.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, checking and turning pieces once halfway through.
As the sweet potatoes bake, wash the asparagus and trim off the woody ends (cut it off where the green part turns white).
Coat asparagus in avocado oil, 1 Tbsp. minced garlic or 2 diced / crushed cloves of garlic, and a dash of salt and pepper.
Line a baking pan with parchment paper or tinfoil and lay asparagus on it (evenly spread them in 1 layer).
Once the sweet potatoes are done, take them out to cool and put in the asparagus for 10-12 mins at the same temperature.
Take the asparagus out when still crisp and vibrant green. Squeeze 1/4 of a lemon on top of them.
Take the salmon out of the refrigerator and pat both sides dry with a paper towel. Turn the oven down to 400 degrees F.
Place the salmon in a foil or parchment-lined baking dish (skin side down).
Coat salmon on all sides with avocado oil.
Rub 1/2 tbsp. minced garlic or 1 diced / crushed clove of garlic on top of the salmon and coat with Old Bay Seasoning or fish seasoning of choice.
Cut a lemon in half and squeeze half of the juice on top of the salmon pieces. Thinly slice the other half and place it on top of the salmon filets.
Bake for 12-15 mins or until the salmon is opaque on the outside and flakes easily with a fork.
Pre-portion your sweet potatoes, asparagus, and salmon into your meal prep containers and label with the times/days for consumption. Meals should be eaten within 2-3 days.
