Roasted Lemon Salmon with Green Beans
Good happy Friday, Friends. I was thinking back to 5 years ago this week, when we were in New York City with our daughter, Abby, who played in Carnegie Hall with her violin group.

What a fun, beautiful memory (we could not record anything live in the hall, so I don’t have the actual recording), as they brought home the “gold” highest achievement award!

And, how in the world has 5 years flown by so quickly?? (Above, Abby with her beloved violin teacher:)

One of my favorite memories was Paul picking out the perfect bouquet for his baby girl!

We ate our way through NYC (Abby with her cousin), and I even met up with Rachael Ray for a casual dinner in Greenwich Village (and a brand I was working with). FUN!

Earlier this week we enjoyed this Roasted Lemon Salmon with Green Beans recipe for dinner. A friend asked me recently where I buy my salmon. I buy it at Costco, and you can also freeze it if you need to. It’s quick to defrost and it tastes just as fresh!

This recipe is simple, with green beans and baby red potatoes! I’ve also made a similar dish, Salmon Succotash, which is delicious in the fall, with fresh corn and green beans.

A quick TIP: What does blanching green beans mean? Cook fresh trimmed green beans in boiling, salted water 5-6 minutes; drain. Use immediately, or plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process (they will be bright green). Drain and pat dry.

There’s just something beautfiul and nostalgic about looking back through old photographs that stir up so many fond memories.

I love the digital age, but … I do miss the actual books in hand. Our NYC trip was all on digital, and now I wish I could sit down and flip through the pages in book form.

How do you organize your photos?

What does blanching green beans mean? Cook fresh trimmed green beans in boiling, salted water 5-6 minutes; drain. Use immediately, or plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain and pat dry.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. baby red potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • ¾ c. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • 8 oz. fresh green beans (blanched)
  • 1 1/2 lb. skinless salmon filet

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. On a large rimmed parchment-lined baking sheet, toss the potatoes, 1 Tbsp. oil, and 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper. Roast for 15 minutes.

  1. I make Shutterfly books with my digital photos after each vacation or special event. They have so many free promotions, I usually can get the book “free” and only pay for shipping. It makes a fun gift to share with any traveling companions. 

  2. I am terrible at organizing my photos…lol. and I have sooooo many. I really need to sit down sometime and work on it. I do move older photos to an external hard drive and put them in specific folders, but my iphoto/photos are just by the date I uploaded them, which doesn’t make it easy to find.

    this recipe looks good. I meant to buy some salmon last payday at Costco and forgot…maybe I’ll remember this time. I’ve been craving it
