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 Food.com. 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!
