Taming of the Salmon Shrew

Well, my father-in-law has accomplished what I thought was impossible. He convinced Amanda to actually say that she liked the taste of salmon and, get this - would like to cook it more often.

This is a battle I have been fighting for as many years as we've been together. I really enjoy a well-prepared salmon (blackened, lemon pepper, cream sauce, etc), but aside from the occasional fish stick Amanda absolutely refuses to eat anything that swims.

When her parents were visiting though, my father in-law cooked a salmon that she not only tried, but enthusiastically approved of.

The surprisingly simple recipe is below:
  • Put it on an olive oil covered grill pan (we bought one at Bed Bath and Beyond).
  • Rub olive oil on the whole salmon (front and back).
  • Shake lemon pepper and seasoned salt on it.
  • Grill with the lid on for 10-15 minutes or until it flakes.
Success at last!

Hey, you got it all wrong. I eat more fish than fish sticks. I eat the frozen fillets, too, and tuna, and shrimp...Such a liar!
