First Time Salmon

I was lounging by the pool one lazy afternoon with my friend and we were discussing what we were going to make for dinner that evening.  *Side note...I feel so weird saying that.  I rarely ever "lounge by the pool"...end side note*  Anyway, my friend mentioned salmon as a dinner option and I confessed I hadn't, yet, conjured up the courage to try that one.  I love salmon, but I've never made it on my own before.  I've tried all sorts of other fish--just not salmon.  Well, I did it.  I cooked salmon for the first time!

There's an amazing fish market about 2 miles from my house so I headed there to pick up a few fresh salmon fillets at a really decent price.  I seasoned the fillets with salt, pepper, basil, and a light vinaigrette mix and stuck it in the oven to bake.  A bit later...ta-da!  The salmon was ready to plate and serve. I complimented the salmon with a special rice dish and some steamed asparagus.  

Sorry this picture is absolutely terrible.  I was in a bit of a rush.  My husband and I were a little hungry and anxious to try the meal! 

Was it a success, you ask?  Yes!  I will be trying this one again!
