6. Asian Salmon in Foil
Salmon in foil - the only true way to cook a salmon. The sealed in flavor creates an insanely savory salmon, one that is impossible to replicate through any other cooking method. The key to creating a rich salmon, is the flavors you put in the foil. We are convinced that this recipe cracked the secret formula we didn't even know there was for cooked salmon. Sriracha, honey, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, and more that makes this dish so savory.
7. Roasted Cranberry Orange Pork Tenderloin
Slide the chicken over and replace it with pork tenderloin. While chicken seems to be a clean-eating staple, the pork tenderloin is a seriously underrated, low-fat lean meat packed with protein. Add in roasted cranberries, coat it in a sweet orange glaze, and you have yourself a 5-star dish.
