Healthy Red Snapper Spinach Salad

Mixing up greens and topping with a lean protein is one of my most favorite ways to make a super quick, nutritionally dense and always delicious meal. Tonight was easy. I had some snapper steaks in the freezer from Costco, I always keep olive oil, agave nectar, limes and dried cranberries on hand. So I just had to sing by the grocery for fresh greens and a mango and we were good to go! Entire meal took less than 30 minutes to pull together and was definitely a satisfying way to end the day.

While this meal is not featured in Color Yourself Skinny 21 Day Diet Detox — it sure follows all the rules! The pink snapper and dried cranberries make it a perfect match for a red dinner!

FIRST – Prepare the Red Snapper:


  • 2 – 4 oz Red Snapper Steaks
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • 1 T Olive Oil
  • 1 T Agave Nectar
  • 5 Cloves of Garlic Chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
