The most delicious dinner ever!

Several weeks ago I accidentally made the best dinner ever! I saw salmon patties at HEB and thought they looked delicious, so I decided to try to make them myself. It did not go as well as I had planned at first. I realized that the salmon I bought still had scales on one side-gross! It was almost impossible to cut them off, so I decided to try to wing it…or I guess in this case, “scale it!” 😉

I put my fresh salmon filet (scales and all) in a ziplock baggie with a olive oil, salt and pepper and let it marinate while I was in my night class. It was seriously one of the most delicious things I have ever cooked! It was definitely the most delicious thing I have made up the recipe for!

Fish, veggies and parsley are all good for you, so I am qualifying this as a healthy meal! I decided to make it again tonight and write a recipe for it. I haven’t included measurements or cooking times, however. Everything is up to you! Make it how you think you will like it. If you discover a delicious twist, let me know!

Ready, set…

Prep work:
1) Slide salmon filet in a ziploc bag with olive oil, salt and pepper
2) Let it marinate 2 hours or more
Cooking time:
3) Chop up a carrot or two into bit sizes
4) Dump all the contents of the bag along with the carrots into a medium sized skillet and set the stove to medium low/medium

5) Place the lid on the skillet and let the fish simmer.
6) Cut up a celery stick or two, add it to the skillet when the carrots are starting to become tender and replace the lid.
7) Wait until both the carrots and the celery are even more tender, then add a chopped up green onion and a sliced tomato (Champagne tomatoes are the best, but Roma tomatoes are good too). Replace the lid.
8) Pinch the leaves off two stems of parsley and add this to the skillet just before everything is tender enough to cut with a fork. Replace the lid.

9) Once the parsley leaves have wilted and the veggies are cooked to your liking (I like mine tender enough to cut with a fork), plate your dinner!
10) Combine with spinach and a spritz of lemon to complete this meal…and…TA DA!!!

Enjoy! This dinner also makes great leftover lunches to take to work =)

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
