Baked Salmon with Garlic Butter Potatoes

For dinner tonight I fixed some Salmon and Potatoes, the kids loved every bite and even asked for more. Jasmine at first turned her nose at the Salmon claiming that she "just don't like fish". I told her to wait until it was ready and to taste it first before deciding.......needless to say she loved it and now says that it's very good.


Baked Salmon

2 lbs Salmon
Garlic powder
Olive oil
Bay leaf

In a 13 x 9 in. dish drizzle olive oil to coat the bottom. Place your Salmon in the dish and sprinkle with the remaining ingredients. You know me, I eyeball everything so I don't have specific measurements. Turn the Salmon over to coat the other side, drizzle some more olive oil on top of the fish and bake in a 350º F oven for about 25 minutes or until flaky and opaque inside. Do not overcook or it will dry out.

Garlic Butter Potatoes

Red potatoes cut into cubes, with skin on
Half a stick of butter
2 cloves of garlic crushed
Fresh parsley or dry parsley flakes

In a pot boil the potatoes until tender. Remove them to a serving dish and keep warm.

Melt the butter over low heat and add the garlic, stir until well mixed. Pour over the potatoes and toss them around to cover all sides. Sprinkle with fresh parsley or parsley flakes.

This is such an easy and quick way to prepare these potatoes but they're so delicious.
