Easy Salmon Recipe

Whoops missed a day. Between cleaning up after the dog at 1:30 a.m. (Why oh why can he never have accidents on the hard surfaces, but must instead aim for the carpet??? And why the new carpet and not the old????), getting a call to sub, and watching 24 and American Idol, I just didn't get to it. I even had a couple of posts up and pretty much ready to go! Ah well.

When I sat down to think up a rough menu for this week, I realized that we had not had fish in a while. Fish here can be very expensive, so it's not fitting very well into our budget, but salmon is almost always affordable. It's not my favorite, but the rest of the family loves it.

This recipe is from Cooking Light - looked easy and delicious and it most certainly was both. The boys even fought over who liked it the most! The only major thing I did differently was to cook the salmon in the oven at 400ยบ for 20 minutes. I do not like cooking fish on the stove top - it stinks up the house for days. I supposed if I had a good vent, it would be one thing, but we have a microwave above the stove, and they don't do a great job at venting.

Another successful salmon recipe to add to our list! I think salmon is really growing on me. More than just tolerating, I have actually enjoyed the last few salmon recipes we have prepared.

    This looks great. I agree with cooking salmon & other fish in the oven. If not - I always think of that old commercial for Lysol- "The house smells like fish and roses!"

  2. Hi Pebbles. :) Yep, for us it's the grill or the oven, no stovetop! When our house was up for sale, I was even afraid to cook it in the oven - didn't want ANY lingering fishy smells for potential buyers. How can something that smells so bad cooking taste so good??
