baked salmon

This week’s meal winner features the protein that was on sale this week: fresh wild caught salmon! Lemon always makes a perfect pairing with salmon, and so I wanted to create a delicious meal for the hubby – and he did enjoy it! This meal disappeared really quickly! If you want to see how I made it visually, click any of the images to see a video!

What you’ll need:

olive oil

Step 1: Pour 1/4 cup olive oil into the Pyrex cup.

lemon juice

Step 2: Quarter a lemon and squeeze the juice to the oil!


Step 3: Mince 2 tbsp garlic and add that in as well!

kosher salt

Step 4: Sprinkle in a dash of kosher salt…


Step 5: and another dash of black pepper!


Step 6: Mix it all together and brush the salmon filets with a pastry brush. Make sure the salmon filets are placed on a foil wrapped baking sheet to allow for easy clean up.
