Simple & Quick Salmon Recipe ( A Personal Favorite )

Simple & Quick Salmon Recipe

My favorite thing about finally being back in my own home ( w/ my wonderful roommates, of course ) after a crazy summer? My kitchen. I’ve eaten out way too much during all the traveling I’ve done recently… because its so much easier when you’re constantly on the go / in a hotel.

So, now I’m taking full advantage of my kitchen and having groceries / supplies to actually prepare food with.

I came across this simple & quick ( <<< two of my favorite things ) baked salmon recipe the other day, and gave it a go. I mean, its not really something you can mess up.. its too easy.

What I did: I picked up a medium-sized salmon fillet from my local grocery store. Then, after pre-heating the oven to 375 degrees, I lined a baking sheet with tinfoil ( to cut down on after-cleaning ). I put the salmon fillet in the middle of the baking sheet & topped it with olive oil, sea salt, black pepper & lime juice. The amount of each topping is really all about your personal preference, so I just eye-balled it.

Simple & Quick Salmon Recipe I baked the salmon ( covered in tinfoil ) for about 25 minutes & then removed the tinfoil and broiled it for about 2 minutes ( to make it yum-o & crispy ).

Then, I sautéed some spinach in organic butter at a medium heat and topped it with some sea salt ( << can you tell I like this stuff? ). And there ya go, a healthy, easy dish for dinner ( & for later in the week.. as a college student, leftovers are my best friend ). Optional addition: A glass of Pinot Noir ( it pairs well with salmon ). Or if your more of a white wine person, Chardonnay is good too.

Whats your favorite simple and healthy dinner / lunch dish? Do tell !!
