IMG_7697So obviously this isn’t a fashion post today, but I did want to share with you all the wonderful dinner I had last night. I must preface this by admitting that I did not make this meal. Well, I made the couscous, but that’s easy. I thought I was a pretty decent cook until I met Karl. I did help him with some of the prep for this dinner. That counts for something, right?!

This meal has no name so I’m going to make one up right…….NOW.

Seared Salmon Lime – Tastes Like Butter Dish

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 Salmon Steaks – I picked up the special at Whole Foods
  • 1 Lime
  • Tomatoes – 1 large or a handful of cherry tomatoes sliced
  • Spinach – about 2 cups
  • 1/2 Onion
  • Couscous
  • Cumin
  • Sea Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cavender’s All Purpose Greek Seasoning
  • Olive Oil

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Season the salmon with salt, pepper, cumin, and Greek seasoning to your taste. Squeeze 1/2 a lime over the filets. Let that sit while you work on the veggies. Sauté the onion (chopped) in olive oil until transparent. Add the salmon meat down, skin up and sear for 2 min (the stove is on medium heat). Next add the tomatoes (sliced). Now flip the salmon over so skin is down and meat is up. You should have half a lime left. Cut that in half. Squeeze 1 slice over the salmon and throw the lime wedge in for more flavor. Add the spinach on top. You can season a little more here if you want. Cover with lid and move to the oven for 10-15 min. The last 5 min of cooking remove the lid. Don’t over cook the fish, duh, b/c then it won’t taste like butter. To check if its finished, take a fork to the middle of the salmon and if it flakes off, you’re ready! (remove skin before eating – it will just peel off)

I served this over a bed of whole wheat couscous and some German Vino to go with my German boyfriend.

I hope you try it and love it as much as I do! Let me know what you think!
