Every now and then, the husband likes to get in the kitchen and cook. The other night, he put together a nice salmon dinner that was absolutely delicious, so I wanted to share it with you all…If I could only get him to clean after he is done…I would be the happiest woman on earth!
Ingredients: (For 4 people)
Nice cut of salmon 1.5 pounds (I bought a 3 pound salmon fillet from Sam’s Club for just $5.99 / pound that made enough for 2 meals of 4 people)
Weber Roasted Garlic and Herb seasoning
1 Pound Fresh Green Beans
6 Pieces of Maple Bacon
Handful of Sliced Almonds
1 Box Pasta Roni Vermicelli – Garlic and Olive Oil
Plenty of Butter and/or Margarine
Slice the salmon into nice steaks about 2-3 inches wide – will be about 6 inches long and 2 inches deep.
Season liberally with the Weber Roasted Garlic and Herb Seasoning – front and back
In a large skillet – cook up your 6 pieces of bacon on like 3-4 heat setting – don’t want splatter
Steam the green beans – if you don’t have a steamer, use a bowl in the microwave with water for like 5 minutes. Then cold water to stop them from cooking.
Get another large skillet for your fish – hopefully one big enough for all 4 fillets – and melt butter or margarine in so that its like 1/4″ deep in the pan – do this on low heat
Take your bacon out after it is cooked – but not crunchy with tongs.
Place a handful of sliced almonds into the bacon grease and get them just a light brown (probably 4-5 minutes) stirring occasionally.
Dry your bacon off and cut it into bite size pieces with scissors.
Add a couple table spoons of butter/margarine to pan and then add the green beans and bacon. (You can remove or leave in the bacon grease, depending on your health concerns)
Salt the green beans – and a dash of pepper. Then stir to coat the beans. Cook on low stirring occasionally while we cook everything else.
Cook up your Vermicelli to directions from box (I know – this is cheating – but we got a lot going on here).
CAREFULLY place the salmon in the pan – use a spatula – maybe even fish spatula if you have it.
COOK THEM ON LOW HEAT – like a 3 – probably 5 minutes each side depending on thickness. If it looks too pink in middle – place a lid on for the last 2 minutes.
Plate and Enjoy.
