RECIPE: Carrie's Slammin' Salmon

This quick and easy recipe is a combination of several others from across the internet that I've tweaked to fit our own tastes. I recommend Wild Caught Salmon. It also worked out well with Flounder in the past.

*As always, seasonings are approximated. Start with a pinch and taste test 'til you're satisfied!




Ingredients:

4 Wild Caught Salmon Fillets
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter (Margarine NOT recommended)
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
5 Cloves Garlic, minced
Several Sprigs Fresh Dill and Thyme
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Combine all ingredients except salmon in a baking dish. Bake the oil/butter mixture for appx. 7 minutes, or until the butter has melted. Place salmon fillets in baking dish, and bake an additional 15-20 minutes, until fish flakes with a fork. Serves 4.

*May also be grilled by sealing all ingredients together in a foil packet

Recommended Compliment: Grilled Potatoes

BONUS RECIPE: Simple Tartar Sauce

3 Tbsp Mayonnaise
1 tsp Lemon Juice
1 Small Dill Pickle, Chopped
Thyme and Black Pepper to taste.

Simply combine ingredients in a small bowl and serve with your favorite fish. Bon appetite!
