oven roasted salmon...plus a bonus.. left over salmon salad...


i had jake and sam over for dinner last week and jake is really liking salmon these days.. so i got some fillets and roasted them in the oven.. they were sooo good.. and the left over salmon made amazing salmon salad for lunch the next day.. i was inspired for this dish from a recipe found here.. you really can't go wrong with martha stewart on your side.. and it takes about 20 minutes to cook.. very easy and simple but ohh so delish..



oven roasted salmon

prep time: 5 minutes
cooking time: 20 minutes
servings: 6

ingredients:

1/2 cup low fat plain greek yogurt
2 tbls. dijon mustard
juice and zest of one lemon (plus extra lemon slices)
salt and pepper
8 salmon fillets

preheat oven to 450 degrees.. combine in a small mixing bowl the yogurt, mustard, salt, pepper and lemon juice/zest..place salmon, skin side down, on a lined rimed baking sheet..brush yogurt mixture over salmon add a slice of lemon to each fillet.. roast until opaque, about 17-20 minutes.. serve warm with roasted lemon slices..


so i wasn't going to take a picture of the salad.. but i was making pete's lunch and it looked so good i thought i would share.. i put mine on low calorie wheat bread.. ohh emmm geee.. it was so yummy.. great lunch..

break apart cooked salmon fillet with a fork and put in a medium mixing bowl. add additional ingredients and gently fold into salad, salad should be kinda chunky. i put it over butter lettuce and added diced red peppers for pete's lunch..
