It's Dinner Time :: Salmon

"There is one difference between a long life and a good dinner:
that, in the dinner, sweets come last."
- Robert Louis Stevenson

Dinner - aside from breakfast, is an important meal of the day. For dinner, last night, the hubby and I had salmon.

I am sharing my recipe with you on how to make this. I usually don't follow recipes, or rather, when I do, I sometimes end up changing something or having to substitute something. Or, I just open the pantry and see what I have- and, that is what I did here.

- 2 salmon fillets with the skin (I got mine from Whole Foods) 
- sesame oil
- honey
- pepper
- salt
- maggi seasoning
- lemon

- Marinate the salmon fillets individually in sandwich bags in sesame oil, maggi seasoning, salt and pepper. Add each to your liking. I don't measure anything, I just go with the flow. Cut lemon into circles and squeeze a few drops into the marinade and place three lemon slices in the bag. Marinate for at least 1 hour, maybe. I marinated mine the night before and left the fillets overnight in the bags in the fridge. Do what makes it easy for you.
- After marinating, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Place fillets in a glass oven safe pan. Again, use what works for you.
- There should be some marinade left in the bag and pour this into the pan along with the fillets. Squeeze a few drops of honey on top of the salmon.
- Bake for 30 minutes, give or take.
- Once down, the marinade glaze should look burnt but you can scrape it off and it should have a sticky consistency like honey and you can drizzle on top of the salmon fillet.
- Serve with rice. We used brown rice. 

One thing, the hubby suggested for next time, is to add some herbs... Check! Will incorporate that next time. And, he wants more greens next time. Check, as well! Let's add some broccoli on the side, next time.

What do you think?
