See, I wasn’t lying when I told you I’d have some more posts for you soon. Here is a meal with relatively straightforward and simple preparation. I made this tonight actually, I hardly ever post something the same night I made it. Something like this, is typical fare for a busy night. Not a whole lot of chopping, and easy to multitask. I’ve been making a lot of chicken and beef lately, so going with the salmon was a nice departure.
For the salmon, I lined a glass baking pan with foil and pre-heated the oven to 350 degrees. I placed the salmon, skin side down, in the pan, and seasoned it with salt, pepper, ginger, and a dash of thyme. I drizzled a little lemon juice over it, and sprinkled some capers. Then I covered the pan with more foil, and baked until the fish was flaky – about 30 min.
While the fish was cooking, I peeled two sweet potatoes and cut them into large chunks or wedges. I also cut up a shallot and two garlic cloves. heating some duck fat in a pan, I threw them over medium heat, stirring and flipping occasionally until the potatoes were soft and the garlic and shallots were caramelized and toasty. I seasoned them during cooking with salt, ginger powder, and paprika.
That’s it….easy breezy!
