Baked Lemon Salmon

Baked Lemon Salmon

Yesterday was Bob’s birthday so last night we had a little family Minion birthday party.  What you’re looking at here is his birthday dinner – Baked Lemon Salmon, Lemon Rice, sauteed veggies and fougasse!  It was all delicious!  The salmon recipe came from “Cooking Classy”.

Baked Lemon Salmon

4 (6 oz each) salmon fillets

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest

2 tablespoons lemon juice

salt and pepper

1  Preheat oven to 400.  Grease a 9 x 13″ baking dish.

2  Whisk together olive oil, lemon zest and lemon juice.

3  Place fillets in baking dish.  Salt and pepper tops then flip them over.  Brush tops of fillets generously with lemon mixture then salt and pepper.  Let rest at room temperature for 10 minutes.

4  Bake 12 – 16 minutes (mine took almost 30, they were still slightly frozen and I like them cooked really well, almost crispy).

Lemon Rice

Go here to the recipe for Cilantro Lime Rice, omit cilantro and substitute lemon for lime.

Sauteed Veggies

olive oil

1 onion, cut into strips

3 zucchini, cut into discs

3 yellow squash, cut into discs

Coat bottom of large skillet sparingly with olive oil.  Saute onion until it is starting to soften then add zucchini and saute for a couple of minutes then add yellow  squash and saute for a couple more minutes.  Place lid on skillet and turn heat down to medium and allow to cook until desired tenderness, stirring occasionally.
