My morning didn’t go quite as planned. After I taught my spin class, I checked my phone and had a message. Ryan had an appointment scheduled for this morning that was about 40 minutes away and he was stranded with car trouble.
Thankfully the gym was rather dead today, so I was able to leave, pick him up and take him into work, but that eliminated all chances of a morning blog post since the break I thought I had in my morning was consumed by running around town and then driving immediately back into work. Ryan was very thankful for my help and I’m happy I was able to head home at lunchtime to at least pop in and say hi to you guys at some point today!
So, hello! How about a super simple dinner recipe to round out the afternoon?
Ryan and I are both big-time fish lovers and usually make fish for dinner in our house at least once a week. Salmon is our go-to, and earlier this week I prepared two salmon filets in a new-to-us way that we both loved!
I almost always season fish and broil it, but this time I decided to marinate the salmon ahead of time to try something a little different.
The end result? A flavorful salmon filet that was both easy to make and very, very tasty!
Though we baked our fish after letting it sit in the marinade, you could easily grill it or cook it on the stovetop if you prefer.Print

- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
- Juice of one lemon
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 six-ounce salmon filets
- Combine olive oil, dill, lemon, garlic and salt to make the marinade. Place salmon in a ziploc baggie with the marinade or pour marinade over salmon in a glass baking dish and cover. Refrigerate for one hour with the skin side of the salmon facing up.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Line a baking dish with foil. Remove salmon filets from the marinade and place on top of the foil, skin side down. Discard the marinade.
- Bake for 12 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Enjoy!
