A staple in our weekly dinner rotation.
1 large salmon filet (wild is yummier) or 2 smaller filets -we enjoy skin left on
Place salmon skin down in baking dish lined with foil.
Top salmon with lemon juice, rub with grainy mustard, plop tons of sliced fresh ginger and chopped green onions on it.
Little bit of salt. You can add some parsley/dill here if you want.
Drizzle with some good olive oil.
Bake at 375 for between 20-45 minutes depending on thickness of your filets.
Served this week with wilted spinach, roasted red pepper and sweet potato fries. (other nice options are brown rice, roasted zucchini or eggplant, bean salad)
Voila – you have your daily dose of omega 3.

Coupla days ago, Hub took day off to do the pead visit with me so I had some time to make a dinner that was a tad more glam than usual.
sweet potater fries (oven baked w paprika/pepper/salt)
garlic aioli (I lie, it was mayo straight from the jar, don’t hate!)
wilted spinach (lemon juice, garlic, butter, nutmeg)
rosemary/garlic-oil infused lamb choppies
caramilized red onions w brown sugar
Verdict – I usually brown my choppies before throwing em in the oven. This time I didn’t but they turned out a lovely medium-rare and quite tasty despite the worrying pasty/lacklustre appearance. They were moist and the bajillion cloves of garlic I tossed into the mix added a great infusion of lip-smacking goodness. Sweet tater fries were oven baked so not as greasy-good as regular fries but passable. I love me some spinach so that was a winner despite sitting on stove a bit longer than originally planned. Overall – pretty groovy meal.
