Oven Baked Salmon

Oven Baked Salmon

Dana and I are always on the lookout for easy and delicious weeknight meals.  One protein that we usually never touch is fish.  Mainly because I have had my fair share of bad salmon and other seafood.  Recently, Dana’s mother made an oven-baked salmon that was super tasty.  I had to have her recipe because it was absolutely delicious.  Luckily, she was kind enough to give it to me and now you will benefit from this tasty recipe also.  It is simple and quite scrumptious.  The lemon rich marinade helps remove any fishy taste from the salmon.  This is definitely a must try, especially if salmon is not your favorite dish but you are open to trying it!

Hatch Green Chile Burgers

Hatch Green Chile Burgers

Dana and I are huge fans of Green Chiles.  We eat them whenever we can, but Hatch chiles are hard to come by in Virginia.  A couple of weeks ago the fine people over at http://www.hatch-green-chile.com/ provided us with 5lbs of medium Hatch green chiles.  These are top notch chiles, fire roasted, seeded and then flash frozen.  They then deliver them right to your door in a cooler filled with dry ice.  Pretty much the only way to get Hatch chiles on the east coast.  We used a bunch to make some Green Chile Enchiladas and Queso.  Since we had a bunch left over, we figured it would be great to use them in some burgers.
