Mondays. Who needs ’em? I don’t know about you, but Mondays are super-crazy-busy for us. I get up, get ready for work, get the kids up and ready for school, take the kids to school, go to work, pick up daughter from school, go back later to pick up son from tutoring, and a couple of hours later, I take daughter to gymnastics, then we come home and get ready for bed. Yep. That’s what our Monday’s look like. Usually, there is only about an hour and a half between the time we get home from tutoring and have to leave for gymnastics. And on nights like those, I need quick dinners. And that usually means fish. It thaws quickly. It cooks quickly. So I can take it from the freezer, throw it in a bowl of water to thaw, cook it and be ready to eat in about 45 minutes. Exactly what I need on a Monday. Broiled Salmon is one of my go-to dishes for Mondays.
- salmon fillets (1 per person)
- olive oil
- fresh lemon
- herbs of your choice
Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil and place salmon fillets on foil. Drizzle with olive oil. Cut lemon in half and slice one very thin slice for each fillet. Squeeze juice of remaining lemon peices over fillets. Season with salt, pepper, and herbs of your choice (although, just olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper is delish!). Place one lemon slice on each fillet. Broil until fish is cooked through and flakes easily – about 10-15 minutes, depending on thickness.
