I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

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!
