Hey friends! How are you today? How was your Monday? I was off yesterday and enjoyed a little extra time with my minis. They even ” helped” me with some chores! I did a ton of laundry yesterday, and am proud to say that I even put most of it away. I actually kind of like doing laundry, but I hate putting it away and usually put it off for way too long.
For a long time, I was intimidated by the idea of cooking fish at home. The hubs does not really eat fish, so I wouldn’t make it for dinner, and just didn’t really have much experience preparing it. Over the last year or so, I decided that I needed to get over that and have been making fish a lot more regularly. Salmon is one of my favorites, and it is so easy to prepare. Today I thought I would share one of my favorite ways to prepare salmon for a weeknight dinner. It takes minutes to prep and bakes up quickly. I usually roast some veggies while it is baking and maybe make some instant rice, for a healthy dinner that is ready super fast and requires minimal dishes!
Lemony Garlic Baked Salmon
1 salmon filet, skin on (about 1-1.25 lbs)
1 lemon, sliced into rounds
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Dash red chile flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
Directions: Preheat oven to 400. Lightly spray a sheet pan with cooking spray. Blot salmon with a paper towel. Mix together olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning and red chile flakes. Salt and pepper fish, then spoon olive oil mixture over top. Top with sliced lemons. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until it flakes easily with a fork.
Do you eat fish? Are there any foods that you were nervous to make on your own?
Hope you have a great day!
