Here’s what you’ll need for salmon:
- 2 salmon filets
- 1 tsp dried herb medley
- 1 garlic clove
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- fresh dill
- 1/2 a lemon
Here’s what you’ll need for parmesan mashed cauliflower:
- 1 medium head of cauliflower
- 1 garlic clove diced
- ¼ cup heavy cream or milk
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- pinch of salt & pepper to taste
Directions for Salmon:
Wash salmon and pat dry. Place on foil and pour melted butter over both filets. Using a knife, make small insertions into the salmon and insert garlic sporadically. Next, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and squeeze the juice from lemon to finish. This is an extra step but I like my salmon blackened. Use cast iron skillet to brown salmon about 2 min per side. Then, place salmon back on foil, add dill and seal salmon in foil packet and place in oven on 425 degrees for about 10 min depending on thickness of fish.
Check fish and if pierced with a fork and salmon appears flaky, cooking is complete.
Directions for parmesan mashed cauliflower:
Cut up cauliflower into florets and boil and salted water and garlic. Once cauliflower is tender remove from water and place in blender. Add remaining ingredients into blender and pulse until smooth. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.
Serve salmon on bed of mashed cauliflower.
