Catchup Salmon (Don’t Worry, Not Ketchup Salmon)

I had such an amazing weekend.  I went to see my Absolute. Favorite. Band. Ever.  The Pentatonix.

If you don’t know who they are, you need to find them on youtube and watch all their videos, then download their albums, and cry because they are starting a tour in Europe and you can’t see them in concert for a long time.  It was the third time I’ve seen them live, and I will try to see them again as many times as possible.  So Worth It.

But that doesn’t mean I’m not paying.  We got home from the concert at midnight (CRAZY!) and Bryce really doesn’t care what time I go to bed.  I had grandma and grandpa to help in the morning before we drove home, but I still started the week behind in sleep, behind in chores, and behind in food prep.   Thanks to Flylady, my house was still in pretty good shape, but I was definitely playing catchup today.  Thankfully, I had the perfect recipe to make life easier today!

This is one of the best recipes I have in my arsenal, mostly because the effort-in:quality-out ratio is off the charts.   It takes maybe two minutes to prep, and less than 20 minutes to cook.  It is delicious with sweet potatoes for an entree, and I use the leftovers to top my caesar salads for lunch.  Dj will never order salmon when we go out to eat, because this recipe ruined him for all other salmon.  It’s that good.

Full disclosure, part of the greatness is definitely because we have a Wegman’s that provides reeeeallly fresh salmon.  If you can buy fresh fish, definitely do it.  Frozen isn’t nearly as good.

Best Salmon Ever

  • Fresh salmon fillet
  • Juice from 1 lemon, or balsamic vinegar also works well
  • Coarse salt and pepper
  • Dry dill weed.

Put salmon fillet on a cookie sheet (do yourself a favor and line it with foil for ease of cleanup.)  Squeeze lemon juice liberally over the fish.  Sprinkle generously with sea salt, pepper, and dill weed.  Broil on high for 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.  That’s it.  You’re welcome. 😉
