I really like cooking shows. When I get on a cooking show kick, I also usually end up getting inspired to make something different than my usual meals like Red Bean Taco Soup or our Freezer Enchiladas, basically anything I can make in my cast iron or my InstantPot.

When the new Trim Healthy Mama book came out I started reading all of their hype about salmon, that coupled with a new binge week watching Chopped on Netflix while I worked at night. So, I decided to make a change and splurge a little and try cooking salmon.

Cooking the salmon was ridiculously easy.

  • juice of one lemon
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder

  1. If you bought your salmon fillets frozen, allow them to thaw before you start your prep.
  2. Melt the butter and mix it with the lemon juice.
  3. Combine the herbs into a bowl.
  4. Dip the salmon filet in the butter/lemon mixture, then into the herb mixture.
