Bon Appetit Slow-Baked Salmon with Lemon and Thyme

Since my family eats a lot of meat every week, I have been trying to include more seafood in our diet. If my five year old was in charge of meal planning we would have shrimp every night, but I enjoy a larger variety of fish and shell fish. Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest, I love salmon and could eat it practically everyday. I have been trying to introduce more fish to my children's diet and was pleased when a recent issue of Bon Appetit magazine had a recipe for Slow-Baked Salmon with Lemon and Thyme.

With only six ingredients, including salt and pepper, this recipe goes together very quickly. The total time was approximately 30 minutes, with 10 minutes being for the fish to marinade. The ingredients are simple. allowing for the flavor of the salmon to take center stage.

This recipe went over well in my household. My five year old loved the salmon and ate his serving and the leftovers later in the evening. I appreciated that the salmon was left to speak for itself, instead of relying on a heavy sauce or marinade. This is a great simple, salmon recipe.

*I will be posting the recipe for the couscous seen on the side of the plate tomorrow*

  4. This recipe sounds great and so simple. We are salmon lovers at our house too. Grilled is our favorite way to eat it. Thanks for the follow and now I am one of yours.

  5. I love this idea. We have made it a goal to have seafood at least one night a week, so I have been looking for more simple and yummy seafood recipes.

    However, if money were no object I would be with your five-year-old and say shrimp every night. :)

  7. @Ava My two kids really liked this recipe and had the leftovers with eggs the next morning.

    @linda I love grilled too, just can't get my husband to paint our grill and get the rust off so we can use it for the season :)

    @shanon We have been trying to have seafood once a week also, so I am always trying to find new recipes so we don't get stuck in a rut.
