Foil Wrapped Baked Salmon

Foil wrapped baked salmon is open to your imagination when it comes to the veggies. Starting with salmon filets, salt and pepper, well, the rest is up to you. We always go with frozen, individually wrapped, wild caught salmon from Alaska. Every time I go by the seafood section at the local grocery all the “fresh” salmon is obviously been there for days or it’s been “responsibly farm raised” or both. Like always, with foil wrapped baked salmon, tonight I just went with the veggies that were on hand in the fridge.

Pre heat the oven to 400F. Lay out a piece of aluminum foil for each filet that will be big enough to fold over and curl together to seal the package. Spray the foil with oil and set the filet in the middle. Sprinkle a little salt, pepper and whatever else you might like on your fish. Like red pepper flakes or dill weed and on and on. The veggies tonight are thin  lemon slices first. Then thin onion slices, garlic, asparagus, tomatoes, spinach, zucchini. I think that’s it. No wait! Drizzle a little white wine and extra virgin olive oil. But, after the salt and pepper you can do it any way you want. So don’t be turned off by all the ingredients listed. Just go with as much or as little as YOU want.

The finished product.

Some chilled Pinot Grigio would go great and some of Poppop’s Eeeeeeeasy home made bread.

Sautéed Vegetables in an Italian way. Real easy and real good.

In Italy this is called Ciambotta. It is a side dish to the prima (main course). It always consists of  Sautéed Vegetables. Sometimes with pasta, rice or meat added. We always have it with just veggies as a side dish to our meat and pasta, but, you enjoy it any way you want. First get a large skillet on at medium high and add about 2 tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil.

IMG_2498 Clean and slice up a small potato then lay the slices in the pan.

IMG_2500While the potatoes are starting to sizzle cut up the rest of the veggies. Here you see what we are going with tonight. Onion, a few stalks of asparagus that we didn’t use in our Bacon Wrapped Asparagus the other night, red pepper, poblano pepper, zucchini,  seeded  Roma tomatoes and garlic. Chop them up in the size pieces you want on YOUR plate. You have turned the potatoes over by now and they are lightly browned on both sides. Now you are going to add the veggies in the oder of how long they take to cook. First the asparagus, peppers and onion. Toss it all and cook it for about five minutes tossing a few times while it’s cooking. Next the zucchini and tomatoes. A generous pinch each of salt and black pepper. A small pinch of red pepper flakes (optional).

IMG_2501When everything is just almost as soft as you want it to be push it all to the sides making a bare spot in the middle. Put the garlic in the hot spot and squeeze half a lemon on to the garlic. Drop the lemon rinds into the mix. Let the garlic get a little soft then toss everything together.

 

IMG_2502You can go with a lot of different veggies if you want. Peppers, onions and garlic are pretty much the core ingredients. Eggplant, potatoes, beans and on and on. Do it how YOU want! Top it off with some grated Parmesan and Romano cheese. Bon appetit!
