Get dinner on the table in under 30 minutes!  Sweet chili salmon is served with roasted broccoli on a quinoa bowl.

 

Oh how I love the first Thursday of the month around here…because it’s 30 Minute Thursday time again!

In case you are new to it, a group of my favorite bloggers and I bring you a whole lotta easy week-night dinner inspiration in the form of 30 Minute dinner recipes!

And really, 30 minute dinners are kind of my jam.  They have been happening a LOT at my house lately.  That’s because I’m working on a recipe e-book filled with Healthy 30 Minute Dinner Recipes, and I’ll be sharing a sneak peek with you all soon!

For now, I hope this big bowl of deliciousness will do!

30 minute dinners are funny.  Sometimes they are more effort than you bargained for.

I feel like some 30 minute recipes have me running around the kitchen like a chicken with my head chopped off and afterwards the kitchen looks like it was hit by a tornado.  As in: it’s kind of a challenge to pack in all of the prep work and cooking in 30 minutes.

Not this quinoa bowl.  It is easily ready in 30 minutes, and you will actually have down time while the salmon, veggies and quinoa cook.  You heard me right!  Down time!

The salmon is baked in a sweet chili- soy sauce mixture.  It’s bit sweet and a bit savory, and SO perfect with the salmon!

The broccoli and snow peas roast away in the oven with the salmon.  Have you tried roasted broccoli?  It has so much extra flavor and is SO delicious, that it might even make a broccoli-hater into a broccoli-lover!

Anyway, the roasted broccoli and salmon are served over quinoa and drizzled with extra sweet chili sauce.

It is a simple, quick and healthy recipe that is perfect for a busy week night.
