What’s for Dinner

I was going to post recipes once a week of stuff we were having for dinner..its been awhile but here is a quick and easy recipe for baked Salmon that we like to make at our house. The kids haven’t tried Salmon yet but I’m thinking next time I will let them have a taste. I normally make this with roasted potatoes and asparagus. I just cut up the potatoes into bite sized pieces and sprinkle olive oil and salt and pepper on them and cook them on a cookie sheet for the same time as the fish. The Aspagus I leave whole, sprinkle olive oil and salt and pepper on it and put it in for about 15 minutes.

Baked Salmon

Ingredients

  • 4 (5 ounces each) salmon fillets
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil plus 2 tablespoons
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tomatoes, chopped, or 1 (14-ounce) can chopped tomatoes, drained
  • 2 chopped shallots
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.Sprinkle salmon with 2 teaspoons olive oil, salt, and pepper. Stir the tomatoes, shallots, 2 tablespoons of oil, lemon juice, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper in a medium bowl to blend.Place a salmon fillett, oiled side down, atop a sheet of foil. Wrap the ends of the foil to form a spiral shape. Spoon the tomato mixture over the salmon. Fold the sides of the foil over the fish and tomato mixture, covering completely; seal the packets closed. Place the foil packet on a heavy large baking sheet. Repeat until all of the salmon have been individually wrapped in foil and placed on the baking sheet. Bake until the salmon is just cooked through, about 25 minutes. Using a large metal spatula, transfer the foil packets to plates and serve.
