Over the weekend, I finally made salmon for the first time! It had always been something I wanted to make but the boyfriend was never a huge seafood fan. So after some convincing, I was finally able to try a new recipe and both the "picky eater" and I were in awe! This salmon came out to be so juicy and so tender! The fish was literally falling off my fork. This was such a quick meal to make too! This time, I had placed the salmon wrapped in aluminum foil in the oven, but next time I definitely want to try cooking it on the stove top for a more grilled taste. It is perfect for those rushed late nights, when you need to quickly put a meal on the table. Overall, this meal was pretty healthy and definitely a good switch up from our usual go- to chicken dishes. Here is the recipe I followed, and I hope you all try this too!
