Can't get outside to grill your salmon? Well this quick and easy oven baked salmon recipe is the next best thing to salmon fresh off the grill.
It's cold now where I live, so I'm not that excited about getting outside on the grill, to prepare my world famous grilled salmon recipe which I love so much. Since I'm such a wimp to the cold, I decided to come up with a salmon recipe that works for the oven.
I can be very creative when I have to.
So I thought for a moment and decided how I wanted to prepare my salmon in the oven. Then I came up with the ingredients and the recipe you see below for a complete healthy and nutritious meal.
Give the recipe a try, then stop back by and tell me what you think.
Where I live I almost never get the opportunity to buy fresh salmon so in many of my recipes a use frozen salmon. I usually buy my frozen salmon at a club superstore like Costcoor Sams since I am a club member at both of these establishments. I usually buy from whoever is offering the best deal. To thaw the frozen fish I cover and soak the pre-packaged salmon in cold water and within about 60 minutes the salmon is ready for marinade. In case you are wondering I used Mr. Yoshida's marinate and cooking sauce.
I decided to change things up a little bit so instead of long grain white or brown rice, I decided to serve my oven baked salmon with yellow rice. I like the unique flavor of this particular brand of yellow rice so I know that it will taste well when eaten together with baked salmon and steamed green beans.
It's always a good idea to serve at least one vegetable dish with your main meal, serving a variety of two to three different vegetable is best. I went to the local grocery store looking to find in season vegetables because they are often the cheapest and most flavorful. I lucked out and found a packaged bag of fresh green beans which I steamed in my little $20 steamer before serving them besides the baked salmon and yellow rice.
So above you see the finished dish. Before serving squeeze juice from a fresh lemon all over the salmon, yellow rice, and green beans.
