the secret sauce for salmon


Salmon is the perfect protein for dinner. It's healthy, filling and tasty. Now that I've got Joe liking fish (which I am very proud of! 😊), I love to make it for us. It's so easy and quick to make, as you just need to bake it for 15-20 minutes in the oven (usually around 400-425 degrees). It can easily be paired with steamed broccoli or sautéed asparagus and a grain. I'm hit or miss on loving salmon plain though, so I usually feel its better when it's got a little kick.

My newest obsession is homemade chimichuri sauce. It's really easy to make, as long as you have a good blender or food processer. My favorite thing about the chimichurri sauce is that you don't have to chop anything since you're going to purée it (aka: its easy, it takes barely any time, and therefore is great for urbanites on the go!)

Another great thing about the sauce is that it can be used for a variety of things. like with steak, vegetable stir fry, in pasta as a pesto replacement, into an egg salad (if you're into that), as a soup garnish, and much more. So, if you have leftovers, you'll find a use for a quick dinner tomorrow!

I'll walk you how I make my sauce, and how to prepare the salmon. I usually pair it with brown rice or mashed potatoes to complete the meal.
