Todays Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Roasted Asparagus
To start this morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. had a high of 47 degrees and mostly sunny, yes we finally seen the sun! After my cup of Tea Mom wanted to go to Jungle Jims International Market. I love going there! You could spend hours and hours seeing everything. I picked up some Deli Items, Produce, and Seafood. They have an incredible Seafood Department. Live Lobsters, Crabs, Tilapia, Bass, and Bluegill! Live Bluegill, go figure! If you are ever in the are a you have to go. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Salmon w/ Roasted Asparagus.
I purchased a a North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Jungle Jims earlier that Ill be having tonight. To make it Ill need the Salmon, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, Dried Chive, and Extra Light Olive Oil.
To prepare it; I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I then got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I washed the Fillet off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I put a light coat of the Extra Light Olive Oil on the Fillet and then seasoned. Lined the Fillet in the pan and baked. I baked it for 8 minutes, and done. Excellent Salmon!
For a side I prepared Roasted Asparagus. I love pairing Asparagus with Potatoes! To prepare it Ill need; 1 bunch of Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place the Asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the Bacon, Garlic Salt, Salt, Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil and toss to coat. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and delicious! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
The Atlantic salmon is a species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae. It is found in the northern Atlantic Ocean, in rivers that flow into the north Atlantic and, due to human introduction, in the north Pacific Ocean.
