What's Cooking?

So, my new year's resolution this year was to "lighten up" my life.  This includes my cooking.  I have been making lots of stir-fry,chicken, and fish dishes with brown rice and sandwiches.  I need some more variety though!  Anyone have any good healthy meals they make often?


Here is one of my newest faves:

Curry Salmon with Broccoli
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked long grain white rice (substitute brown rice)
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 pounds broccoli, chopped
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of celery soup (fat free)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (fat free)
  • 1 cup apple juice (you can also use white wine)
  • 2 teaspoons curry paste (or curry powder)
  • 2 pounds salmon fillets, bones and skin removed (mine was already cooked-leftovers)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Bring the rice and water to boil in a pot. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 25 minutes.
  3. Arrange broccoli in the bottom of the baking dish. Mix the cream of celery soup, mayonnaise, wine, and curry in a bowl, and pour 1/2 evenly over the broccoli. Cut salmon into chunks and place in baking dish. Top with remaining soup mixture.
  4. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until broccoli is tender and fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve over cooked rice.
This sounds weird, but believe me- it is delicious!  
I made a full 9x13 pan of it on Sunday and had my brothers up for dinner and we finished it all!
