"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy." ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!
This week saw the first day of spring, and also the announcement of the happiest country in the world. This year it was Norway, which was especially joyful for us because both my husband and I are of Norwegian heritage! He brought lots of happiness tonight by playing the mummy game… wrapping our grandkids in toilet paper, then filming them breaking out. There was much laughter involved!
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 2 pounds salmon
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves for garnish, if desired
Preheat over to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil, making it long enough to wrap around salmon and seal.
Melt butter in measuring cup. Add and whisk together brown sugar, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper to taste.
Place salmon onto prepared baking foil and fold up all 4 sides. Spoon the butter mixture over the salmon. Fold the sides of the foil over the salmon, covering completely and sealing the packet closed.
Place into oven and bake until cooked through, about 15-20 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnishing with parsley if desired.
