Basil Pesto Salmon with Broccoli & Honey Gold Potatoes……severe YUM factor!!!!!

I really meant to take a picture of this amazing dish that I cooked up tonight for my supper……but I was overcome by the enticing aroma of the salmon smothered in basil pesto (basil pesto from Whole Foods) cooking in the oven……this was beyond DELISH.  It was Smarvelous. Just really, really good.

So, I took about 2 heaping tablespoons of this wonderful basil pesto and covered the salmon and placed it on a pan that had about two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and allowed it to cook through for about 10 minutes. 

Before that, I found a bag of Honey Gold Potatoes, and placed them as well as a frozen 8 oz package of broccoli to cook, in about 3 cups of boiling water, with some salt and freshly ground black pepper.  These were cooked through rather quickly, as the potatoes are small.  I drained the water, and put just a little bit more of pepper, and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

I placed the salmon on a dish with the broccoli and potatoes, and instead of even contemplating going to find my camera (I should have had it in the kitchen to begin with) I dived right into this plate…..and let me tell you, so simple and yet so delicious and so quick to make! So fulfilling as well.

Salmon is great for the skin.  Every time that I eat salmon twice a week, my skin thanks me!

Please try this dish and let me know if you like it as much as I did!!!!

And to leave you with a wonderful verse for the evening;

“How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered!  I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand!

Psalm 139;17 & 18 

Treasure this Life….even in the kitchen!

Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each others’ faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. Colossians 3:12-15

Peace.  I find peace in the kitchen.  It brings me great joy to be able to spend time in the kitchen, coming up with different recipes, full of fresh fruits and vegetables, transforming ingredients into mouth-watering dishes that will be healthy as well and will be enjoyed by many.

But lately I have been baking, baking and more baking! Tonight on my way home from work, I purchased pomegranate infused dried cranberries and dried plums – my weekend project is to make something yummy for a long car trip coming up!!!!

Stay tuned and I will share what I make……maybe I’ll take some of these “new to be creations” to Tart & Berry’s, on Kendall & 122nd (at the Regal Cinema Shopping Mall)!!!

Have a great evening!
