…the week is totally getting away from me with overtime and absolutely ZERO inspiration for some reason lately . 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 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.
Here are the stats:
