My family are not big on salmon and that’s ok, it just means more for me. It cooks so quickly I often make it for lunch when I have the house to myself. The recipe is high in fat and gives you a feeling of satiety for a long time afterwards. It also makes extra Tzatziki which is nice for a snack with some cut up veggies.

Salmon can be a bit expensive, especially organic wild salmon, so it is nice to purchase a whole fillet rather than just a steak, it’s more cost effective. Even if it is just yourself eating it. You can flake it up for a salad the next day, or make salmon cakes.

Place lemon slices on salmon, season with salt and pepper.

  1. Thanks for the recipe, tips, and information, Kendra. Agreed that wild-caught salmon isn’t cheap, but I do have an online resource that I use to do some comparison shopping. With even a decent-sized order of salmon, you can get it delivered to your front door and it’s still not that much more cost-wise than a lot of other dishes I prepare.
