Salmon and Veggies!

Leave a comment

Ahhh! It’s been so long since I’ve posted! All things electronic were being difficult- sorry for the delay! This recipe is sooo easy and can be done in so many different ways, I got it from Michael’s mom. It’s based around three parts: meat, veggies, spices. You pick some, toss them together, wrap them in foil and bake at 500 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Seriously, it’s that easy. The only meat that doesn’t really work in this is beef but you can do pork, chicken and fish! We were having a dinner for our youth kids this night and were ordering pizza and I had eaten crap all week so I made this quickly before everyone came over for Michael and I.

For this recipe:

2 pieces of wild Alaskan salmon (Costco this right now in the frozen section… it really is wild and thaws really well)

1 handful of mushrooms

1 zucchini quartered and sliced

2 yellow squash cut into strips

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

4 cloves of garlic, diced

4 green onions sliced thin

1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped

a little lemon zest and juice (don’t go to crazy with this, a little goes a long way)

salt & pepper

(2 servings)

Toss the veggies with the olive oil and spices and then carefully toss salmon with them as well (really just to get a little coating of olive oil on there). On a large piece of foil arrange the veggies and put the salmon on top. Bring the sides of foil together and fold them together securely on all sides. Bake for 20 minutes at 500! Done!
