Anyway, my husband BBQs during the summer and one day he BBQ'd some salmon for his mom. I tried a bite and discovered a new love in the seafood department: my husband's BBQ salmon. YUM! All he does is put it in foil, sprinkle salt, pepper, olive oil, lemon juice and a little lemon pepper on it and calls it good. And, boy howdy, is it ever!
During the winter, though, my fish intake decreases greatly. As I've said before, we are making an effort to go meatless on Mondays, so I decided to try my hand at baking salmon and seeing if it would be good. It was a success! The recipe, of course, as always, was from Pinterest with the link going to the Pioneer Woman's website. To check out the recipe (as well as a bazillion others), click here.

It turns out, this recipe is pretty much exactly the way my husband prepares the salmon other than not using lemon pepper and lemon juice (which I did use anyway) and it being cooked in the oven instead. I didn't put it in foil as The Pioneer Woman did not say to do that, and it seemed to be just fine. Here is a pic after it was prepped and ready to go in the oven... it certainly doesn't look very appetizing.
However, as you can see, it turned out as pretty as fish can be (without being deep fried) and it really was quite tasty.
It was a little more cooked than I would've liked so it lost a little of its moistness, but that was completely my fault since I forgot to set the timer when I put the salmon in the oven.
If you aren't a fish fan, this probably wouldn't be your cup of tea, but if you are a fan of fish or of trying it from time to time - this is a good choice.
