Oh So Easy Dinner

January 13, 2012

Last night I was in charge of dinner. My mom did the shopping, we brainstormed what I could make together and I turned our plans into actions. Dinner turned out looking fancier than it initially seemed to. We used 3 different salmons (bought at different stores to compare) and added vegetables that we found in the freezer as a side.

I’ve made poached salmon a couple of times before which is probably the quickest way to prepare the fish. But to add a little more flavor and make things look more interesting I decided to marinate the salmon filets with a very lemony marinade.

Salmon with a Very Parsley Lemony Marinade

makes enough to marinate 5 salmon filets

You will need:

  • 2 lemons
  • 4-5 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup packed with fresh parsley
  • salt
  • pepper
  • chilli
  • a pinch of thyme
  • 1 tbsp. mixed herbs
  • 5 salmon filets
  1. Add the olive oil to a bowl
  2. Roll out the two lemons to get the juices flowing and squeeze them. Add the juice to a bowl.
  3. Roughly chop the parsley and add it to the bowl.
  4. Season with salt, pepper, chilli and add the rest of the herbs according to your personal taste.
  5. Let the marinade rest for 30-45 minutes before marinating the salmon.
  6. When ready to marinade the salmon preheat the oven to 180°C. Arrange the salmon into a oven proof dish and marinate with the marinade.
  7. Cook for 30 minutes. Serve immediately.

Here’s a little before and after shot:

Served with 2 sides: 1. mixed creamy vegetables and 2. buttered Brussels sprouts…yummy!

Have a good day!
