My husband has three brothers. His youngest brother, Bill is the best brother-in-law ever! He is the one that works to keep the family connected. He always shows up for family graduations, confirmations and weddings. If someone needs help with a building or household project, he shows up to help. He often call my husband to meet part-way for breakfast. He even makes a trip to Arkansas every couple of years to visit another brother. Recently he celebrated a birthday and his two children took him on a salmon fishing trip to Michigan. He knows I like salmon, so yesterday when he and Pa Lloyd met for breakfast he had a cooler with salmon steaks to share with me. So I got to looking at salmon recipes. I fixed it for lunch and it was simple and so good, so that is your recipe today, all because of my special brother-in-law Bill!
Tarragon Salmon steaks
2 salmon steaks
2 Tablespoons melted butter
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 Tablespoon minced fresh tarragon (if you don’t have fresh, use dried but less, as the flavor is more intense when its dry)
1 Tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste
Place salmon in ungreased glass baking dish, skin side down. Drizzle with a mixture of the melted butter and lemon juice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with parsley and tarragon. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes. I baked for 25 minutes. Serves 2.
Have a great week!
