In all honesty, how fast is fast food? Maybe you can get a shriveled, fatty burger from some eateries in less than five minutes, but that’s only because it has been waiting for you under heat lamps for an hour. At more “upscale” fast-food places, where they cook to order, you're looking at a minimum 10-minute wait, and at the end of that you’re still ingesting mystery meat and tons of hidden high-fructose corn syrup.

Salmon and Asparagus Soup Servings: 1
You'll need
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup chopped asparagus
  • 6 oz salmon

But what if you could make yourself a much more wholesome meal, one in which you could vouch for all the ingredients, in that same 10 minutes? No hidden carbs, no secret fats, plated and on the fork in as much time as it would normally take to hit the drive-thru?

1. Pour broth into a high-sided skillet. Add asparagus and cook over medium heat until broth begins to boil. Add salmon and cook on one side until done, then flip and cook on remaining side.
