Lemon & Garlic Butter Salmon with Garlic Mushroom Quinoa
I am so excited for this post, it is a really simple dinner recipe and it is the perfect meal for a stay-at-home Valentine's Dinner.
Before J we stayed home because crowds at restaurants suck, and after J we will definitely stay home because it is just easier. I love cooking at home anyways, you don't have to worry about rushed, or bad service and you can stay in your PJ's if needed.
We had enough left overs for me to freeze it for meal prep for two days. I love when we have left overs because I am doing my best to not eat out as much as possible, especially since J is now eating what and when I am eating. We all get to eat healthier now.
The recipe for the Mushroom Quinoa was from Damn Delicious and you can find it here.
NOTE: I did use Bella Mushrooms instead and less than what the recipe called for 1lb of mushrooms and I only used half.
Lemon & Garlic Butter Salmon
2lbs of Salmon
Juice from half of a Lemon [use the other half to top with slices]
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 tablespoon of Garlic Powder
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 teaspoon Terragon
2 Garlic Cloves Minced
2 pinches of sugar
1 -2 pinches of salt
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Cook the Salmon in a non-stick pan [I put parchment paper on the top just for less of a clean up], at 350 degrees for 25-30 mins.
When the Salmon has about 10 minutes left you'll want to get your butter sauce ready, melt your butter, then add in all the ingredients. Stir them all together, taste before putting on top of your Salmon to make sure the salt/sugar ratio is to your liking. Once you have made sure that is yummy, plate your dinner then top it all with the butter sauce.
And now you are ready to dig in.
