Baked Salmon (in foil)

This recipe turned out to be quite tasty.  It is especially good with fresh salmon! Add a few small potatoes and some sauted bok choy for a really healthy meal.

  • Salmon filets – about ½ lb filet per person (following is per filet)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Green onion, chopped
  • White wine
  • Lemon

Preheat oven to 400.

Debone filets, rinse and pat dry.

Prepare separate aluminum foil sheets just large enough to hold separate filets.  Place individual filets on foil. Put 1 Tbs butter patty on top of each filet. Squeeze lemon juice and sprinkle a small amount of wine over the top of the salmon. Place 1-2 lemon slices and a sprinkle of chopped green onion on top of each.
Wrap up each foil package tightly and place on baking sheet.

Bake 10 minutes.

Remove from oven. Set oven to broil. Open foil and return salmon to oven to brown tops.

Serve while hot.

Re-imagine Safety

The term Defund Police seems to upset some people. I heard a member of the Minneapolis City Council use a less confusing term to describe what they really mean. She called it Re-imagine Safety.

Start using this new term and see stress levels reduce.
