We’ve been on a fish kick lately, and I must say, I’ve been surprised at my taste buds. They are approving! So when I was at Costco not too long ago, I stocked up on more tilapia and also decided to grab some salmon to add to the mix. A few nights ago we gave it a shot. And I have to give a shout out to my chef husband. When we were dating, I pretty much did 99% of all the home-cooking between the 2 of us. Now, I’d say it’s more 80/20, and Greg is the primary chef in our kitchen. I love to whip up staples that I’ve been cooking for a while like meatloaf, pot roast, green bean casserole, hashbrown casserole…but when it comes to new stuff, I like to let Greg take the lead. He usually scopes out some options on allrecipes.com, and then we go with it!
And our salmon recipe was a huge hit. So yummy!
– salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together the butter, lemon juice, parsley, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Dip the salmon into the sauce so the flesh side is coated, and set on a plate. Heat the olive oil in an ovenproof skillet (iron skillet) over medium-high heat. When the oil begins to smoke, gently add the salmon, placing it skin side up into the skillet. The hot oil will go a bit crazy when the salmon hits it, so be careful! Cook until seared and golden brown, about 1 minute.
Place the skillet into the preheated oven and cook until the salmon flakes easily with a fork, 10 to 12 minutes.
We made garlic mashed potatoes and salad to go with it. IT WAS SO GOOD 🙂 We ate it too quick to even snap a picture of it!
