So, I’ve never actually made salmon.
I mean, I’ve bought the single, frozen, small packets of salmon, but I feel like those don’t count. They aren’t real pieces of salmon. Okay, well they are but they don’t taste anything like fresh salmon.
So when I had the Whole Food Groupon, I knew I wanted to use part of it to buy a fresh salmon filet. Salmon is such a treat (and a splurge) but so worth it!
Melty butter with fresh lemon juice.
Poured on top of this delectable treasure? Mmhmm.
Lemon Butter Salmon
- 3 tbsp butter
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- Juice from half a lemon
- Dash of salt & pepper
Heat butter, juice, garlic, salt & pepper until melted. Pour on top of salmon pieces. Place salmon pieces in the oven under the broiler (at 525 degrees) for 6 minutes. Flip to the other side and cook for another 6 minutes.
Served alongside some roasted potatoes.
And spinach and mushrooms (sauteed in the leftover lemon butter sauce).
A delicious (and nutritious) meal!
