I wanted to make a miso cod dish, but the hubby hates miso. So I’m doing my own spin.
Oven Roasted Salmon and Squash
I made this healthy delicious meal a few nights ago. The family loves salmon and this took less than 20 minutes to bake. I marinated the salmon in a few tablespoons of olive oil and added some salt, pepper, and a little garlic powder. I had a few more squash and zucchini left over from the farmers market, so I sliced them up thin, coated them in some olive oil with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and placed them around the salmon.
The oven was preheated to 400. The salmon and veggies cooked un just under 20 minutes. I flipped the squash around about half way through. Of course, you can use whatever veggies you like; I think asparagus or broccoli would be perfect. This large piece of salmon feed the 4 of us, but you could add more or less depending on your need. Perfect for a easy summer dinner!
Teriyaki Salmon and Cheesy Muffins
I hope everyone is doing the well. While I have been cooking, it has mostly been quick and easy things. Between the Pandemic and all the other horrible things happening recently, I have not really been in the right state of mind to cook or write, but I am slowly starting to dip my toe back in, so here is something I made the other night that was super easy and I thought I would share.
I found this teriyaki marinade at the store last week. I usually tend to make my own concoction or different Asian sauces, but this looked like a good one. Low sodium and pretty straightforward ingredients; garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, soy sauce, onion, and vinegar.
I bought this pretty salmon that was on sale at the store. I saw an interesting fact about fresh salmon- when you get it, just should smell like watermelon. Just a hint of it. It is true! Next time you get some salmon, try it out. It should not smell fishy. I marinaded the salmon for about 15 minutes. Rebecca made some cheesy mini muffins -the kind from Jim and Nicks, which you can find on the baking aisle with the cake mixes and such.
The salmon cooked the same time as the muffins, about 15 minutes. These were on the thick side, so 12-15 minutes is usually the range. The oven was at 425. I added a side of broccoli to complete the meal!
