This was a good recipe, not great though. If I make it again, I will zest the lemon instead of peeling, I think that will give it more lemon flavor. Or I would just squeeze lemon juice on top when the fish is done. It was a very easy way to make salmon, very little clean up. This is adapted from a Martha Stewart recipe.

2 skinless salmon fillets (4 oz each)

2 tsp olive oil (1 tsp each fillet)

lemon peel from one lemon (1/2 on each piece)

salt and pepper

Pre heat oven to 400F. Place salmon fillets in center of  a large piece of parchment paper drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and top with lemon peel. Fold up like an envelope.

Bake until salmon is cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes.

This one sounded a little strange to me at first, but those are usually the best recipes. This one is adapted from  Potato Salad with Green Beans and Hard-Cooked Eggs in Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone.

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil

2 Tbsp dijon mustard

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 Tbsp capers

1/2 red onion, finely diced

1 celery rib, finely diced

1 Tbsp fresh marjoram

1/2 Tbsp fresh thyme, chopped

2 pounds red potatoes

2 cups green beans, broken into 2-3 inch pieces

4 hard boiled eggs

In a large bowl combine the vinegar, olive oil, dijon, capers, onion, garlic, celery, thyme, salt and pepper.  If you don’t like raw onions saute the onion and garlic briefly in olive oil.  Place the potatoes in a large pot, barely cover with water, bring to boil. Boil the potatoes until almost tender, add the green beans and continue to boil until green beans are tender crisp (2-3 minutes).  Drain and add to the bowl of dressing. Toss till everything is covered in dressing, taste for salt.

Tonight we  had salmon with green beans and sweet potatoes.  The salmon was wild Alaskan from Trader Joe’s. The green beans and the sweet potatoes were from my local farmer’s market.  On the salmon I put a mixture of brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper and simply cooked them in a skillet. The green beans were sauted with garlic and at the end I throw in just a tiny bit of butter for flavor. The sweet potatoes (which there is no picture of because we ate them all before I thought about taking pictures) are roasted with just olive oil, salt and pepper. Yum!

Sweet and Spicy Salmon

Spicy Salmon

1 Tbsp brown sugar

1/2 Tbsp chili powder

1/2 tsp cumin

salt and pepper

Mix together and spread over two 4 ounce wild salmon fillets.  Heat olive oil in a skillet and saute about 3 minutes on each side (depending on thickness). Don’t over cook the salmon, it will turn out very dry.
