When I was out shopping the other week I saw wild caught Pacific Salmon for $4 a pound. We’ve been trying to eat more fish lately and it seemed like such a great deal. Now that I’m writing about it I wish I had bought a lot more for the freezer! When I asked for a couple of pounds the gentleman behind the counter informed me the price was for a whole fish. I always buy fillets, and was a little intimidated at the prospect of a whole fish. (But it wasn’t really a whole fish, it had been gutted and beheaded 🙂 )
I took my fish home, put a little olive oil and salt and pepper on it and roasted it at 400° for 20 minutes. Checked for doneness and let it rest for 10 minutes. I served the salmon with a green salad and raw vegetables. And there were lots of leftovers! It was much easier to get the fish off the bones than I had anticipated. I think this will be an easy go-to weeknight meal for our family.
