There are times when I try new things in the kitchen specifically with the hopes of creating something delicious and blog-worthy. And then there are times when I want something healthy and delicious, but I need it pronto. Just every now and then, those little gems find their way to blog-land.
Today, I'm happy to be sharing one of those recipes with y'all. Grilled salmon filets - cooked from frozen in just about 10 minutes.
Somebody hold the phone. Did I just say 10 minutes? Yes, yes I did. And it was eaten in less than that. ;)
I keep these frozen salmon filets on hand for times when I need something quick and usually when hubs is out for some reason or another since he doesn't like seafood (although sometimes I will cook a meal, and make salmon just for me...)
For this beautiful piece of salmon, you'll need a frozen filet (I buy the individually wrapped ones in the freezer section of the grocery store), and a non-stick pan.
1 salmon filet
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp basil
1 pinch salt and black pepper
Heat non-stick pan on medium heat
Rinse frozen salmon well in warm/hot water to remove any ice
Gently coat with olive oil and lemon juice
Place in heated pan
Cook for 5 minutes* on each side, sprinkling each side with 1/2 salt, pepper, and basil
Enjoy. Preferably with kale chips for a lovely light lunch, but hat's just how I like it.
