Food Hussy Recipe: Baked Seasoned Salmon

Sometimes I get food cravings - no - I'm not pregnant - I just want certain foods. Last week - it was salmon - I've been dying for salmon!

I got a bit over a pound at Meijer and was a bit shocked that the guy at the seafood counter had NEVER HAD SALMON! He asked me if it was good (no - I'm just spending $10 on something crappy) and I said YES YES YES - go home tonight and make some!

I decided to take my own advice and made mine. I was looking for a recipe that I could bake and that was EASY.

And after some googling - I found one of This was great because I had all the ingredients and didn't have to do much! Woohoo!

I did use balsamic vinegar instead of cider vinegar because that's what was in the cupboard and I think I liked it better!!!!

I LOVED this recipe - it was tart (from the vinegar), lemony (from the lemon - duh) and buttery (from - you guessed it - the butter!).

This recipe is definitely going to be saved and made again and again in our house!
