Well I did something that I rarely do, cook fish. My family is probably shocked that I just wrote that sentence. But YES I cooked fish! I LOVE seafood! I guess my New England upbringing is finally coming through. Last summer when Tai and I went to Maine on vacation, we met up with my family for a New England style lobster bake. It was unreal! Lobster, steamers, shrimp, scallops, steak, corn, and all of the fixings . It was a dinner to remember. BUT then I try to cook fish and it usually comes out overcooked on the outside and raw in the center. Oy! Not safe to eat!!! But this recipe is beyond simple and idiot (meaning me) proof! I made a Roasted Salmon with Dill Sauce and it was absolutely delicious!
I served this salmon with simples sides of mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus. I wanted the fish to be the star of the meal…but not the only part of the meal. And besides, asparagus is coming into season and is a great spring vegetable to try right now.
I promise you that if I can cook salmon, anyone can. You have my word! Next time I make salmon I’ll try a more a more adventurous recipe. But to start, it’s always good to begin with the classics 😉
