We love fish! This delicious Salmon and Greens recipe is a quick and easy one pan dish to prepare! This recipe is like building blocks, first olive oil, onion, salmon, lemon slices and then the greens added on top, all seasoned with salt and pepper. Covered and cooked until the greens are wilted and salmon is cooked to your satisfaction. It’s awesome, if i do say so myself! I stumbled upon fresh wild caught Salmon at Ralph’s on sale for $9.99 per pound, not a bad price.
As you can tell, My family loves Salmon so much that when we order it from our favorite sushi restaurant the chef makes jokes that we’re eating it like it’s going out of style, Yikes! It’s literally becoming more difficult and more expensive to get fresh wild caught fish. This Salmon was so tasty, I’m going back tomorrow to buy more so me and the kids can use it when we attempt to make our own homemade salmon sushi rolls. Stay tuned!
Stay on course!
