Garlic Lime Salmon and Acorn Squash

This lovely salmon recipe was inspired by my lovely sister-in-law. I tweaked the idea so it can be baked and so it is a little thicker so the topping doesn't fall off. Hope you like it, it was a huge hit with my picky eaters! 


Salmon:
Ingredients


1 large slab of salmon
1 lime
5 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 Tsp Parlsey
1 1/2 Tbsp Mayo 


Preheat oven to 350F
In a heated saucepan, melt butter and add the minced garlic, let saute for about a minute. Just until glistening and very lightly browned. You don't want to over cook the garlic. Add the juice from 1 lime and continue to cook for about 30 seconds or until everything is nicely combined. Add parsley and stir a couple of times then remove from heat. 
Combine butter mixture with mayo.
Place salmon in a lightly greased baking dish and generously cover with mayo and butter mixture.
Bake Salmon at 350F for about 20 minutes or until it flakes easily.


Acorn Squash


Acorn Squash

Ingredients

  • 1 medium acorn squash, halved and seeded
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Turn acorn squash upside down onto a cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven until it begins to soften, approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
  3. Remove squash from the oven and turn onto a plate so that the flesh is facing upwards. Place butter and brown sugar into the squash, and place remaining squash over the other piece. Place squash in a baking dish (so the squash wont slide around too much) while baking.
  4. Place squash in the 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven and bake another 30 minutes.
