Baked Crusted Salmon - Table ready in 15 minutes
{Sponsored by McCormick & Company}

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of McCormick & Company. All opinions are 100% mine.


Dinner time is an important time for families to sit down, share the events of the day and tuck in to a healthy and delicious meal.  At the end of a long day, however, I often find that I lack the energy to put on an elaborate production in the kitchen.  That's why I'm thankful for a handful of treasured recipes that allow me to prepare fantastic meals that the whole family enjoys, but take under 15 minutes to whip up.


My most recent such find is the Baked Crusted Salmon from McCormick.com.  This simple, elegant dish is as perfectly suited to a family dinner as it would be to impress a date.  


Accepting an opportunity to work with McCormick was a no-brainer.  After all, McCormick spices have been a part of my kitchen as far back as I can remember.  McCormick Lemon-Pepper is my favorite seasoning on broiled Tilapia and baked chicken.  A tuna sandwich made with Lawry's® Seasoned Salt always takes me back to childhood!  

"... and bake at 450° for 10 minutes!"

Growing up on the Monterey Peninsula, I've had my share of great salmon.  Therefore, this recipe was going up against some pretty weighty competition.   No doubt exists in my mind, however, that this simple recipe yields the most delicious baked salmon I've ever tasted -- at home or in a restaurant.  It is simply perfect!

Here's the recipe:

Baked Crusted Salmon

from McCormick
serves 4

Preheat oven to 450°F. Mix seasonings in small bowl.
 
Step 2:  Place fish, skin-side down, in lightly greased baking pan. Lightly brush with oil. Sprinkle seasoning mixture evenly over fish.
 
Step 3:  Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

That's it!

----------------------------------------

While the salmon was baking, I whipped up a very quick and healthy side dish -- Lemony Cucumber Bulghur with a Greek Yogurt Dill Dressing.  I'll be sharing the recipe here tomorrow!

My mom takes hamburger patties and mixes the Mexican season with flour, coats the patties and pan fries them, Then takes and adds to the drippings and left over flour mixture, a can or two of tomatoes and green chilies to make a sort of gravy. Served over rice its our families FAVORITE!! :)
