Simply Salmon

I like fish a lot, but only discovered salmon a few years ago. Fish used to be more of a treat when I was growing up and since salmon is not an affordable type of fish I only came to try it after I got married. It is an acquired taste I guess, as it has its own flavors, very different from the white fish fillets I was used to.
I could not even smell it (and other fishy foods) when I was pregnant, and it took me a few years after that to be able to enjoy salmon again (although white fish, such as tilapia, would not bother me).
It has been a couple of weeks since I got a craving for salmon, but did not get to prepare it until today.
I sprinkled the salmon fillets with salt, pepper, olive oil, chopped dill, and fresh lemon juice. Just that, and baked it in the oven (350) for 10 minutes. Served it with brown rice, roasted tomatoes and asparagus (which went in the oven at the same time the fish baked, seasoned with salt, pepper, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar). Easy and delicious!!
Matheus loved and ate every last bit of it, so we were both happy after a nice and healthy lunch!

Works for me! Thanks for joining in. You just need to add a link to my site so your readers can see the round-up. Next time, you just need to e-mail me your permalink. The salmon looks great. :)

Ana, I'm a Brazilian living in the U.S. with my American husband and son. I liked your blog and recipes, and I was wondering if you have written previous posts with tips on cooking for toddlers. My son is a really picky eater and the fact that I'm an awful cook doesn't help matters. So I'm constantly looking for new dishes that might be tasty for him, and that won't take me hours and hours to prepare...

As for the salmon, I've always loved it, and that's what I had for dinner just before I went into labor to have my baby.

I would just like to say that I have been enjoying salmon most of my life up here in Alaska. I have found that the simpler the recipe the less it covers the wonderful flavor of salmon. I have started another blog with recipes as well: http://www.salmonrecipes.blogspot.com/
