On Sunday I had the opportunity to teach a lesson to the adult women in my church. It was on the moral force of women and our influence for good. Below is a quote from the lesson that I really like and pushes me to be a better person. This quote was given when talking to a female audience but I think adding “and men” is appropriate too. So here is some food for thought:
This salmon recipe is the one I grew up with. It is super easy and really lets the fish shine. It tastes great served with orzo and rice and a side of vegetables or salad. Oh and let me just plug in that salmon is a great source of the omega 3 essential fatty acid! 🙂
NOTE: The salad dressing used in the marinade is made in St. Louis, MO (my home town) but I was able to find it in Omaha at Walmart. If you can’t find Zia’s salad dressing in a store near you then it is possible to order online here. You can try substituting it for another brand but I can’t guaranty the same taste.
- 1 pound salmon filet
- 1/4 cup Zia's Sweet Italian Dressing
- 1 tablespoon Salmon Seasoning
- 1 lemon, cut into wedges for serving
- Place salmon filet (skin side down) in a baking dish (large enough that the filet can lay flat).
- In a small dish, mix dressing and seasoning. Pour over salmon. Place lid or plastic wrap over salmon and allow it to marinate for 30 minutes in the fridge.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Tilt pan back and forth or spoon excess marinade over the top of the salmon and then pop in the oven to bake for 15-18 minutes or until it is cooked through and flakes (depends on thickness).
- Serve with lemon wedges.
