Recipe: Italian Salmon

Many moons ago, when I first started my blog, I was dating a guy I called LLS.
LLS stood for land lord’s son.  Despite the unoriginal name, it was a very original relationship.
We won’t go there.  We’ll leave it at the fact that “waterworks” in R&W came from his unreasonable sobs.
This relationship helped me learn many life lessons that I hope to one day forget.
While that is true, there is one thing I have kept with me all these years.
The mother of LLS made the best salmon in all of the universe.

Italian Salmon





















(2) Pounds Salmon Fillet
(1) Packet Italian Dressing Mix
(1/3) Cup Vegetable Oil
(1/3) Cup Water
(1/3) Cup Balsamic Vinegrette
The packet will tell you to use vinegar, don't listen to it.  Use balsamic vinegrette.

The night before you plan on cooking the salmon, clean the fish and let dry.  Meanwhile, mix together all of the other ingredients in a separate bowl.  Poor the marinade into a Ziploc bag.  Place the fish into the bag and make sure it is facing down and overly saturated.  Place on a dish in the refrigerator and let marinate until ready to cook.

Preheat the oven to 350*.  Take the fish out of the Ziploc bag and place skin side down in a baking dish that is lightly coated with olive oil.  Bake for about 25-30 min until the fish is fully cooked.
Don't remove the skin before cooking.  This helps to keep the fish moist.

Serve with a green vegetable and potatoes.
...and on a fancy dish because it's so good people will think you mastered a difficult skill...
This is a house favorite despite where the recipe came from!

Have you or will you try Italian Salmon?

    1. You can't eat fish either? You think that would be similar to chicken since it's considered a "lean" meat. Hmmm tisk tisk!

      hahahahahahahahahaha Sushi is so good! I don't know why it didn't like it. You were a great sport, though, and I applaud you for trying it. We should go again sometime. :)

    2. lmao tried it once and that was it. Never again.

      I'm not sure it is the fish or some of the seasoning used on the fish, as who know what has gluten in it, either way I stay away unless I want to be in the loo all day.

  3. I am actually content with just eating salmon out of the can. The cheap pink kind is actually pretty good. That stuff is really good for you.

    2. It's like tuna except tastes better and doesn't give you mercury poisoning. But your recipe would probably make a salmon that would put the grumpiest pirate in a splendid mood.

    3. lol The next time I meet a pirate, I'll let you know. :)

    1. It really is. Let me know if you make it because I really think you'll be impressed. :)

  5. While, I think I could make this because your recipe is clear and easy to understand, I probably won't make it for myself. I'm not a fan of salmon. If I am going to have company I would definitely make this for them! I think they would be impressed.

  7. Dishes involving marinated fish are always worth trying, but I'm pretty sure that salmon don't live in Italy. So maybe it should be called "Mama Mia Salmon" or something like that.

    4. Err ummm not on this planet at all. Salmon rhymes with famine and Italian with stallion, the two don't rhyme in ANY way. Sorry, lol

  11. my gosh! I totally remember when you were dating him, how funny is that!!! I haven't heard of this before but beyond down to give it a try. Anything with Salmon: I'm in!

    I mean, everything happens for a reason: Perhaps all the waterworks were so that you could learn a new recipe. lol.

  12. i love marinating fish over night!! i've been really into the spicy & sweet fish lately. so i've been obsessed with mango or pineapple habanero sauces. sometimes if i'm not being lazy i will buy the actual fruit and slice it up and cook it with the fish as well

  13. Okay, so I'm usually not a big salmon fan (I think it tastes fishy), but this actually sounds amazing! I'm totally going to try to it and will report back, probably a new convert! :)
