Other than fish sticks and tuna salad, salmon was the first real fish I would eat. Maggie’s recipe below looks wonderful. Take a look…
I don’t cook a lot of fish at home. I wish I did, but I can rarely prepare it as well as they do at nice seafood restaurants, and HATE lingering fishy odors in the house. So, I just don’t do it.
I had never prepared Salmon at home, but when I ran across this Weight Watchers recipe a few years ago I decided to give it a shot. It looked really easy and flavorful.
I’ve been making this about once a month ever since. It is sooooo good. Soooo easy. And the house doesn’t stink when I make it! The best part is the Picky Pants daughter #2 actually asks for this dish.
This is a crowd pleaser. I often make it when we have guests because it looks and tastes great, and looks like you cooked all day. With an entrée this easy, you can focus on one amazing dessert.
