Baked Flounder with Brown Rice

Flounder Brown Rice

    This is a meal that we make all the time.  I can throw it together faster than I could cook a frozen pizza and it's just a really easy, simple meal. I keep the large bags of wild caught flounder in our freezer (we find them at Sam’s Club) so that I can make this quick dinner in a pinch if I don’t have anything else prepared.  The flavor of flounder is very tender and mild and doesn’t ...[Read More]

Easy Roasted Salmon Recipe

Easy Salmon Dinner

    This is my favorite way to cook salmon.  Each summer we go home to Idaho and bring home around 200lbs of wild salmon for our freezer (check out a video of me catching a huge chinook salmon here), so as a result we cook salmon 1-2 times a week.  This is such an easy recipe but has so much flavor. Ingredients: -six 4oz (appx) salmon filets (or one giant filet as shown here) -2 lemons, ...[Read More]

The Most Amazing Salmon Recipe

image

We eat salmon a lot in our home and so I am always experimenting with different marinades and flavors. This gets my vote for my absolute favorite way to eat fresh salmon. It adds just enough mild flavor without masking the taste of the salmon (because I get asked this a lot...if you buy wild fish instead of farm raised it doesn't have a very 'fishy' taste to it). The recipe is so simple. Turn your ...[Read More]
