You know what’s even better than a 30-minute meal? A 15-minute one. We all need a few of those in our back pocket for busy nights.
This easy salmon recipe comes from The Fertility Foods Cookbook: 100+ Recipes To Nourish Your Body, a new book written by Elizabeth Shaw and Sara Haas, two dietitians who have shared their own personal journeys with infertility and are reaching out to help other women with support and science-based advice.

Their book includes recipes, tips for easing stress, information on the nutrients you need for conception, and guidance from other women who have struggled with infertility too.
They chose to highlight salmon because it’s loaded with omega-3s, healthy fats that are beneficial for your heart, brain, and even your mood. They recommend choosing wild-caught salmon, which is more nutrient-dense than farm-raised.
Before trying this recipe, I’d actually never cooked salmon under the broiler (I usually bake it). But this way was faster and easier, and the fish stayed super moist.
Serve it with speedy sides, like bagged brown rice you steam in the microwave and pre-washed salad greens. Just double or triple the recipe if cooking for more people.
