From Solo Lisa's Kitchen: Baked Salmon



My cooking resolution has hit a bit of a rut lately. I keep getting stuck for ideas of which recipe I want to make next, and consequently I keep making the same thing several times before I move on to the next recipe. After the improvised udon noodle soup, I roasted more chicken for a bit until I decided to tackle salmon.

Like the udon, I didn't go at it with a set recipe, but this time the results were much tastier. I sprinkled salt and pepper on the salmon filets, and combined melted butter, dill, and chopped garlic into a sauce and poured/brushed it on the top. Then I laid thin lemon slices on top. I sprinkled salt and pepper and brushed olive oil on the veggies as well. The salmon filets only took 20 minutes to cook to perfection, but the potatoes and zucchini had to stay in the oven for another 30-40 minutes.

What dishes do you like making? Any ideas or suggestions about what I should try cooking next?

  2. I'm the same way with recipes. I keep repeating my favorite ones before I can move on. This looks fantastic though, so no wonder you can't stop making it! One of my classics is baked salmon as well, but instead of the dill and garlic, I use a honey+ mustard sauce which is brushed on, they a layer of tomatoes and garlic on top. Once the salmon's done and out of the oven, you sprinkle some torn basil on top. A foolproof and very yummy dish! I'll have to try yours!

  7. Salmon is my favorite. My boyfriend's mom taught me this salmon recipe and while I thought it was such a weird combination at first, it's amazing and it's my favorite dish to eat whenever I come over :) however if you don't like mayonnaise, this recipe isn't for you. Just spread a thick layer of mayonnaise on a salmon fillet and sprinkle dry onion soup mix on top. Throw it in the oven at 350 for 30-40 minutes or until cooked. Deliciousss! I also like making salmon with teriyaki sauce, minced garlic and green onion (just steam!). Yummmm.

  8. looks yummy. Salmon's pretty easy and healthy so a great meal any night. i like it with teriyaki sauce or i do a dill-yogurt marinade with it.

    you can always precook your potatoes in boiling water (not fully - just 10-15 minutes but depends on size) and then toss them into the oven. The trick to really crispy potatoes is to rough them up a little in the pot once they are cooked a bit to get "rough" edges. Do this with olive oil and lots of sea salt. Now put them back into the oven and you'll have perfectly browned, crispy roast potatoes. Fresh thyme or rosemary add nice flavour
