So, its that time of the year again! Saying goodbye to the old and hello to the new. 2010 is coming to an end, making room for 2011! I am ready to welcome 2011. 2010, I had told myself that I would lose weight and get my educational goals in line. Well, 1 out of 2 down. I am definetly on my way to get my B.A and will be transferring to CSUS very soon! In fact, I am already accepted to CSUS for Spring 2011. I am excited.
In the process of educational goals, I did however, fail to lose weight. Infact, the last few months, I have let it all go. I may have gained rather then loosing. So, in 2011, I want to dedicate my blog and myself to loosing weight, sharing recipes, sharing my successes and failures and just motivating anyone out there looking to lose some pounds while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
So here is my first recipe to start in endeavor off!
Lemony, Herby Salmon
2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
1/8 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tablespoon minced fresh herb (your choice)
4 lemon slices (about 1 lemon)
1/8 cup lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
1/4 cup Marsala wine (or white wine)
2 pieces of aluminum foil
Brush top and bottom of salmon fillets with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and herbs. Place each piece of seasoned salmon on a piece of foil large enough to fold over and seal. Top the each piece of salmon with 2 lemon slices, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons of wine. Wrap up salmon tightly in the foil packets.
Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Place the foil packets on the hot grill and cook for 10 minutes for a 1-inch thick piece of salmon. Serve in the foil packets.
