FOOD: winner winner, salmon dinner

I made the most delicious salmon dinner last night. 

dinner is served!

It's a dish I've been trying to master since my new year's resolution to cook more.  (see: banana bread sunday, chicken florentine)

However, my cooking attempts have all been supervised by friends.  

This time I decided to give it a go myself.  

ready to be baked

It was simply divine. 

Here's the recipe.  Let me know how yours turns out!


Baked Alaskan Pink Salmon with Garlic and Dill Aioli

Serves 4

2 pounds Pink Salmon fillet, boneless cut into 4 equal portions.

Baste Ingredients: 
3/4 cup Mayonnaise 
2 Tablespoons Garlic, freshly grated
1 Tablespoon Lime juice, fresh
1 Tablespoon Lime zest, fresh
1 Tablespoon Dill weed, fresh 
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
4 small Dill sprigs for garnish.  Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste. 

Directions: 
1. Combine all of the baste ingredients.
2. Thoroughly coast both sides of each fillet portion with baste.
3. Bake in oven: 400 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes.
