Under the Sea [From Oven to Table]

When it comes to being brilliant in the kitchen, I am far from the first person you would ever think of. I am about as comfortable in the kitchen as a wool sweater on a hot summer day. Thank God my husband accepts me for both my gifts and my shortcomings because he is unbelievably patient when it comes to the dinner menu – the other night we had chicken breast and a cup of yogurt.  My guess is that he was just thankful we didn't have another smoothie night… poor guy.

I am always on the hunt for easy, but delicious recipes. When I stumbled upon this gem (thank you Pinterest!), I didn't realize the gold I had found. It is simple and comes out perfectly tasty every time – seriously, every time. In fact, it has become a weekly staple in our otherwise sad menu. So I thought I would share it with all of you and maybe it will become a go-to for you as well!

Easy [Even I Can’t Mess It Up] Baked Salmon

Ingredients: Salmon (however much you need to cook), Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper,                           Miscellaneous Seasonings, Tinfoil, and a Baking Sheet
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 25 mins

Instructions: Rinse off the salmon and pat dry. Line your baking sheet with tinfoil (you don’t have to do this, but it just makes clean up that much easier –and that is right up my alley.) Place salmon skin-side down on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper to your liking (and whatever other seasonings you would like.) Here’s the crucial part…put into a COLD oven. Then set to 400 degrees. 25 minutes later you have perfectly baked salmon every time!

Let me know what you think about this recipe AND if you have any easy recipes of your own, I’d love for you to share them with me…my husband would be thankful as well!

  1. I'm definitely going to try this, esp since my family is a salmon loving family. I would have never thought to put it in a cold oven.

    1. It's so delicious and easy. We hoped you enjoyed it!
