Salmon Dinner – Quick – Easy 

 

This quick easy salmon dinner worked great for us on a Friday when I was tired and not feeling very creative. I just opened the refrigerator door and found the salmon filets. (We always have some in the freezer) I put them in a bowl of water to thaw out. Then I looked at the usual veggies that we always have on hand. Picked out potatoes, a bell pepper, onions, garlic and tomatoes.

Recipes are just a guideline. Go ahead and substitute items that cater to your personal preferences.

Let’s throw together our Quick Easy Salmon Dinner

 

Put 2 skillets on at medium high and drizzle enough olive oil to cover the bottoms. You will need a bigger skillet for the veggies than you will for the salmon.

Peel the potatoes and cut them into about ¾” cubes. Put the potato cubes into a microwave safe bowl and zap them for just about 2 minutes to soften them up. Cut the onion and pepper into strips about 1” long. Add the potatoes, onion and pepper strips to their skillet. Sprinkle some salt and pepper. Toss them a few times as they cook.

Potatoes onions and peppers

 

Put the salmon filets in a bowl with the skin (aka flat side) down. Squeeze the lemon juice on them and sprinkle any kind of spices that you want on them. I went with garlic powder, black pepper and dill weed.  You don’t need salt. They are already salty.

I just about always use dill weed when cooking fish. It just adds a little layer of flavor that goes along really well.

Put the salmon in their skillet with the skin (flat) side up. Put the lemon juice and the lemon rind from the bowl in the skillet also. After about 2-3 minutes the salmon will be ready to turn over. Depending on the thickness of the filets and how well done you like them cooked. The skin side is going to take just a little longer to cook.

Push the veggies over to the outer edge of their skillet and add the garlic and tomatoes. Cook them just long enough to soften them up a little then stir all of the veggies together.
