600 Calories Or Less
All of these delicious recipes come in at 600 calories or less per serving, ideal for those who choose to monitor their caloric intake, without sacrificing flavor. The US Food & Drug Administration recommends a 2000 calorie daily intake for the general population. The 600 calorie cap equates to 30% of total 2000 calories per day based on 3 meals per day with 200 calories remaining for snack or beverage.
Carb Conscious
Our Carb Conscious recipes provide a balanced approach to carbohydrate consumption by replacing refined carbohydrates from sources like white flour, rice, and cane sugar with high-fiber foods like fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.
Mediterranean Diet
Our Mediterranean recipes are inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, a healthy eating plan recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published jointly every five years by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This eating plan highlights the flavors and cooking styles from countries along the Mediterranean Sea, including those in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.
Plant-Forward
Our Plant-Forward recipes are designed by our chefs to help support a flexible diet that emphasizes plant-based foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans and other legumes like lentils and soy foods, and includes occasional, moderate portions of meat, poultry, fish, and seafood.

This recipe was created as a collaboration between our Blue Apron chefs and author and philanthropist, Annie Falk, whose foundation, The Michael and Annie Falk Foundation, is proud to support Wellness in the Schools (WITS), a non-profit with a mission to promote healthy eating and physical activity in schools that Blue Apron has been partnering with since 2017. This simple, flavorful dish features flaky salmon paired with a delectable sambal-soy sauce—the perfect match for a side of fluffy rice and a crisp, colorful vegetable sauté.

ingredients
Sweet & Spicy Salmon with Green Beans, Sweet Peppers & Jasmine Rice
Title
  • 20 oz Skin-On Salmon Fillets
  • 1 cup Jasmine Rice
  • ½ lb Sweet Peppers
  • ⅓ cup Soy Glaze
  • 2 Tbsps Honey
  • 2 Tbsps Vegetarian Ponzu Sauce
  • 6 oz Green Beans
  • 3 Tbsps Roasted Peanuts
  • 1 Tbsp Sambal Oelek
  • ½ cup Asian-Style Sautéed Aromatics
Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the green beans; halve crosswise. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then thinly slice lengthwise. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), soy glaze, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. 

Cook the rice:
2 Cook the rice:

In a medium pot, combine the rice, sautéed aromatics, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

Cook the vegetables:
3 Cook the vegetables:

Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the halved green beans; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the sliced peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Add the ponzu sauce and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until combined. Transfer to a bowl; taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

Cook the fish:
4 Cook the fish:

Pat the fish dry with paper towels. (If you received 2 fish fillets, transfer to a cutting board, skin side down; cut each fillet into 2 equal-sized pieces.) Season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the seasoned fish, skin side up. Loosely cover the pan with foil. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 2 to 4 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. 

Finish the sauce & serve your dish:
5 Finish the sauce & serve your dish:

Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) to the pan of reserved fond; season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly and scraping up any fond, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the cooked fish with the cooked rice and cooked vegetables. Top the fish with the finished sauce. Garnish with the chopped peanuts. Enjoy!
