This salmon recipe is just so good that you will be licking your plate and staying in for date night. Oh, and its super easy too.
Here is what you will need:
Note: I like to use Alaskan Salmon if possible. Alaskan Salmon is caught in the deep, icy, clean waters of Alaska which are mostly pollutant free.
Season both sides of your Salmon fillets with salt and pepper and let it set for a few minutes. Heat a pan (I like to use nonstick for fish) over medium to high heat. Add a little olive oil and cook each side for 5 minutes or until the salmon flakes with a fork. Serve with rice.
In a small saucepan heat 1/3 cup butter, 2 Tablespoons of Marmelade/ Apricot Jelly, and 1 Tablespoon of Balsamic until everything is melted. Remove from heat. Pour over cooked salmon. (I first found this Magical Butter Sauce over at the Steamy Kitchen…where Jaden claims to pour it on just about everything…soon you will too).
Now for the Mediterranean Vegetables and Hummus Dressing…
You can find a vegetable mix, Hummus dressing, and Feta with Mediterranean herbs at Trader Joes. All you have to do is mix some feta into the vegetable medley and add some dressings.
Note: If you can’t find a prepared vegetable medley, you can make your own by dicing an assortment of veggies. Here are some ideas: carrots, green peppers, red cabbage, green cabbage, broccoli, radish, celery, and jicama.
You can prepare this date night meal in less than 20 minutes. Enjoy!
