To be honest, I am not the type of cook who always measures her ingredients. Is anyone else like this? Perhaps that makes it difficult for me to write out this recipe for you, but nothing will stop me from sharing things with you guys. For this reason, we will call this recipe the 'Not So Average' recipe because, it's just not the normal, precise recipe.
I do have cute measuring spoons & measuring cups from Bed Bath & Beyond and I promise in future to make more use of them for recipe posts. In this case, however, I did not record the measurements, so please bear with my 'no measuring' ways. Keep in mind that these measurements below are estimated for sharing purposes. Feel free to alter the doses to your liking.
Let's get started! For this recipe post, I have a one pan dish. I LOVE a good one pan recipe because let's keep it real, time is limited already and this just means less clean-up and less fuss all throughout. This specific dish is in the oven which makes it even easier, once it is all prepped. You can squeeze in time for a book, a show, quality time with the kids, etc.--while the oven does all the work.
baby red potatoes
Olive oil cooking spray
salt and pepper to taste
Cut the potatoes in half and toss them in a little thyme and rosemary, some garlic(in this case powdered), and spray a little olive oil.
As for the salmon, in a tiny bowl, mix the following:
about 1/2 a teaspoon of salt
about 1/2 teaspoon pepper
about 1 teaspoon of garlic
about 1/2 teaspoon of parsley flakes
about 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
Spray olive on your cleaned and cut salmon fillet(s) and then mix in this dry rub all over. Be sure to spray a bit more olive oil when done to lock in the powdered even more. You can either chop fresh rosemary and add to the rub or in my case just garnish it on top of the filet + potatoes before putting in the oven.
(see photo below.)
Roast on a baking sheet in a 450°F oven for about 30 minutes. If you prefer your salmon somewhat crispy, I would put the salmon back in alone for another 5-10 minutes on 'Broil'.
and there you have it! Quick easy and yummy!
Hope you enjoy <3
