Recipe Review: Garlic Lemon Dill Salmon (100th post!)

Hello Readers,

How was your Wednesday?  Mine was pretty good and productive, more unpacking, laundry, dishes, solid feeding, you know how that goes!  I just realized that this is my 100th post, yay!  If I were sponsored or made money I would have done some sort of giveaway or something cool, but, I'm not and I don't, so I won't!

So today was my first time EVER making salmon...I'm ashamed to admit that, because to be honest I was afraid of it!!  Well I'm here to tell you, DON'T fear the salmon.  Salmon is your friend.  It was seriously easier than even baking tilapia.

This was a really easy recipe though, which I found here:  http://progresso.com/Recipes/Recipe-Starters/lemon-garlic-dilled-salmon/590f8e30-0df3-4af7-b8a2-fa9c98c6e7ac

All I did was use a small amount of oil and put the salmon on over medium-high heat, let cook on each side about 4 minutes, and flipped a few more times for good measure, it needs to get to 140 internal.  I also sprinkled with lemon pepper instead of salt and pepper.

The garlic lemon dill sauce was varied from the recommended recipe, (my style, naturally), I used the Progresso recipe starters, some minced garlic, the lemon pepper and dried dill.  I served broccoli on the side, and one roll.


I cooked a little longer after this.


In the famous words of my very British grandma, Iris, "Yummay!!".

All in all, this was a VERY easy dinner, and very tasty, and if you didn't use the canned sauce stuff, it'd be even healthier!  Don't fear salmon, it is very easy and it won't bite, much!!

Remember, fish are our friends, and food, ;)
