What's so great about salmon?

Salmon is a nutrient powerhouse! First off, it’s an excellent source of lean protein- offering approximately 21 grams per 3 oz serving. Salmon also supplies our bodies with a high dose of Omega-3 fatty acids, which support a healthy inflammatory response and assist in cellular regeneration. A serving of salmon provides more than half our recommended daily value of selenium (another protector against free radicals), and Vitamin E, which neutralizes harmful free radicals that can lead to cancer and cellular damage. Salmon is also rich in Vitamin D, B12, B6, and other trace minerals. You’re on board, right? You get it? Salmon is great, especially when included in your meal prep recipes! That way you’re getting all these great benefits, multiple times per week.

Chile and lime is a classic flavor combination: a little heat, a little zest. We love it on chicken, veggies, steak, portobello mushrooms, and omelets, but especially in this salmon meal prep. Chiles are powerful antioxidants due to the significant presence of Vitamin C in them. Whole oranges just happen to be a lot easier and more pleasant to eat than whole chiles, unless you’re into that sort of thing? But we wanted to incorporate them into this salmon meal prep, both for the flavor pop and the nutrition boost. Don’t think your immune system is the only thing benefiting from the chiles though- they also contain capsaicin, a natural pain reducer and supporter of a healthy inflammatory response. Maybe this salmon meal prep is the perfect addition to your gym routine?

How to Store and Serve Chili-Lime Salmon Prep

Once this is prepped, just store it in meal prep containers (airtight, naturally), in the refrigerator. Reheat gently in the oven, tented with foil (that will help prevent the salmon from drying out or overcooking). This prep will keep for up to 4 days. If you want, you can certainly freeze this meal prep.

Cook up some steamed broccoli along with rice to go with this meal prep and keep them in the other compartments of the meal prep containers. You can do regular rice, brown rice, or even cauliflower rice. Quinoa or other grains such as farro would work, too.
