Embrace the Camera Thursday 8.25.11 & 20 Minute Recipe Search!

Hi ETCers 🙂  Here’s our deal today!

See this family…

We need some help!

We are tired of ordering dinner in, but the mommy featured up there gets harassed by the baby up there, every time she tries to cook our family dinner.  This results in either ordering in something quick, or heating up some sort of frozen meal.  In my defense, our frozen options are of the healthier variety from organic markets & Trader Joes, but I’m bored with this stuff.

Here’s where all you other mommies come in!  I’m looking for recipes that take approximately 20 – 30 minutes prep to plate.  The hunt will benefit anyone looking for quick and easy recipes because I will put everything together into an organized post & re-post so everyone can have all the recipes!

Here’s my entry!  I hope everyone loves it as much as I do 🙂

Dijon Lemon Salmon: (serves 2)

  • 1lb wild salmon (or any salmon you like) – this also works with Arctic Char!
  • 1/2 cup dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp garlic (either minced or paste)
  • black pepper to taste

In a small bowl, mix the mustard, lemon juice, garlic & pepper together.  Cut the salmon into individual pieces.  Spray a broiler safe pan or cookie sheet with non-stick spray & place the salmon skin side down (or just flat if you prefer salmon steaks).  pour sauce over salmon, making sure to cover the whole surface.  Put it on pretty thick.  Broil approximately 10-15 minutes. The mustard will get brown & bubbly in spots.  That is ok – I usually just broil until it’s well done b/c that is how I like it!

(I never use measuring devices to make this – I eyeball it, & the consistency should be less thick than the mustard alone, but still thick enough to cover the salmon!)

I make this with some roasted broccoli & cauliflower & tadaaaa!

So delicious!
