Baked Salmon & Roasted Purple Potatoes

Salmon is one of my all time favorite things to eat! Served with a salad and potato or rice and you have a delish meal in 30 minutes. Tonight I chose purple potatoes because they were super cheap at Farmer's Market and they are so pretty.
The peach jalapeƱo salsa pictures here will be
blogged about another day. It didn't come out quite like I wanted it to,
 it was yummy but not blog ready :)
Baked Salmon:

The Stuff:
2 salmon fillets
1 teaspoon olive oil
dash of salt & pepper
Juice from one lemon
parchment paper
small baking dish

The How To:
  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Put parchment paper inside the baking dish, you can use foil, but cooking with aluminum foil is not recommended
  • Top with olive oil
  • Place salmon on oil 
  • Sprinkle with s&p and lemon
  • Fold sides of parchment over salmon
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, make sure not to over cook, it will cook a little when you pull it from the oven
Roasted Purple Potatoes

The Stuff:
Purple potatoes
2 teaspoons olive oil
Garlic Powder
Baking Sheet

The How To:
  • Preheat oven to 400
  • Cut potatoes into quarters
Look how pretty they are
  • Pour olive oil on to baking sheet
  • Add potatoes in a single layer
These look to be swimming in olive oil - they aren't
  • Sprinkle with s&p and garlic powder
  • Bake for 15 minutes then flip, bake another 15 minutes
Weight Watcher Friends: Salmon: 1/2 fillet 7 p+, purple potatoes: 4 oz 3p+
