- MEAL PLANNERS & CONSULTANTS Quick Dinner: Cook Easy Salmon Recipe the trim&TERRIFIC Way ~ Holly Clegg
Simple and sophisticated! I know salmon can seem intimidating if you have never cooked it before but truly, it is one of the easiest of the fish to prepare. Whether you bake, broil, roast or sauté, each preparation is simple with a unique flavor. We know we are supposed to eat fish more than we do, so I suggest you add salmon to your daily dinner repertoire. Salmon is available year round in the groceries making it a last minute pick up on your way home. And, healthy it is-low in calories and saturated fat, yet high in protein and omega-3 essential fatty acids, a health promoting fat.
Wait until you try Salmon Marsala from my new fun, whimsical cookbook, Too Hot in the Kitchen. Simple and sophisticated with only eight ingredients. This can be a last minute meal any night of the week. I like using cornstarch as a thickening agent but you always want to remember to add cornstarch to cold liquid before adding to the recipe and watch how fast your sauce thickens. I recommend using the Holland House Marsala cooking wine-I love these Holland House pantry friendly wines as they are consistent in flavor and I don’t have to worry about opening a bottle of wine---makes for convenient cooking.
