We have a big problem at my house! I love Salmon, Big Goo doesn’t, and Baby Girl is allergic. So, what does that mean for my love of Salmon?
This is beautiful Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon. It’s on the expensive side, but I promise you want be sorry after you taste it.
I love roasted vegetables and I decided to cook Asparagus spears and my favorite baby bell peppers. This is just so simple, creole seasoning, black pepper and a little olive oil, that’s it!
The key to this salmon dish is DON’T FLIP IT, or MOVE IT!
I was one of those people who flipped my fish so much, it was a crumbled mess when I finished with it. Not anymore, I figured out the key, leave the fish alone and it want mess with you.
It’s ready people, let’s flip it and eat it! Don’t forget to eat the skin, it’s delicious.
