Mediterranean Baked Salmon


Eric and I officially have a place to live when we get married! We found the cutest little condo that I have affectionately dubbed our “Snow Cottage.” And though I am so excited to start this new chapter, I will definitely be sad to leave my current roommates. And by roommates, I mean my parents. I have been living at home since I graduated college and I can honestly say I have loved every minute of it. Ok scratch that. I loved every minute except the time they woke me up at midnight to scream, yell, and sing because the Tigers made it to the playoffs. But other than that, living with mom and dad has been great. I’ll miss watching the Colbert Report with my dad every night and “Pinterest-ing” with my mom. And I will really miss cooking dinner with them. A few nights ago I made this delicious salmon recipe from Eat, Live, Run and it was a big hit. Not only is it incredibly delicious, but it is also very easy to whip up. The prep time is short but the result is a flavorful and impressive looking meal. I think it would definitely be a great meal to serve at a dinner party. But for now, since I only have few more months living at home with these two, I might just serve it a few more times at our nightly dinner party for 3.

Ingredients: Serves 3, Recipe from Eat Live Run
