Fire Up the Grill

Cook's notes: Add a bit of kick to your dinner with Cherry Chipotle Glazed Salmon and Baby Potato Hash. Both recipes are adapted from Cuisine Lite February 2017. The salmon comes in at 306 calories per serving  and potato dish 127 calories per serving. The glaze is enough for 2 salmon fillets or 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Pair the meal with  watermelon cubes
