Once Again...

...the week is totally getting away from me with overtime and absolutely ZERO inspiration for some reason lately <sad face>.  But here's a tasty recipe for salmon (or so Rik says! I don't eat fish) that I came up with on Sunday.  And it will take you about about 20 minutes start to finish with no dishes to wash when you're done!

Honey Citrus-Glazed Salmon 

2 salmon steaks each about 5-6 oz 
The juice of half a lemon
1 tsp. honey
  • Rinse your salmon steaks well.  
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Juice your lemon and add the honey.  Put this in the microwave for about 15 seconds just until the honey melts enough to incorporate into the lemon juice.  
  • Take 2 pieces of aluminum foil and place them on the counter top and set a salmon steak onto the middle of each.  
  • Stir the lemon and honey mixture well and divide evenly over the two steaks.  
  • Fold the tinfoil edges over the salmon steaks to create a little air-tight packet and carefully place them in a glass baking dish or on a cookie sheet.  
  • Pop this into the oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily.  
This would be great served with a side of fresh steamed asparagus or a bowl of salad for a light dinner.  I actually cooked them on Sunday and had them ready for Rik to pack in his lunch this week for extra protein and a nice change from the chicken that he's getting bored with.
