Can't you tell I love peas?
Like many of you I love Pinterest and it's infinite amount of recipe pins so of course I couldn't resist trying out this easy salmon recipe. I wanted to test out this recipe on my day off to see how "easy" it really was and I have to say it was right on!
- Thaw out your salmon; I bought them individually wrapped so they're easy to toss a few in a bowl on the bottom shelf of the fridge to thaw out while you're at work or during the day.
- While you're prepping preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
- Slice a couple of lemon "wheels" (if you like lemon with your fish cut few wedges for later.)
- On sheet of aluminum foil place enough lemon slices to cover the bottom of the salmon (it only took five.)
- Place a few pieces of butter on top of the salmon.
- Sprinkle pepper on top plus any other seasonings of choice.
- Create a pocket with the aluminum foil by pulling two sides together, fold over, then close the sides in with the center fold.
- Bake for 25 minutes until salmon flacks easily with a fork (internal temperature should be 145 F; place thermometer in the thickest part of salmon when checking)
It tasted great and clean up (including prep) was a breeze because everything was contained in the aluminum foil pocket. Next time though I might use a bit more pepper and another spice to give it additional flavor. Overall it's an easy tasty dinner perfect for two that you won't break a sweat over!
