I get it. Dinner is hard, and cleaning is hard, and sometimes cooking seems like way too much hassle. This one-tray salmon dinner is totally low-hassle; you just leave everything on the tray as you add more stuff to it.  It also makes you feel like a real adult, cooking grown-up food. Salmon is pure brain food (with those omega-3s) and is sure to help you power through midterms.
