Baked Citrus Salmon

I like this recipe because it’s simple, it looks appetizing on the plate, it tastes good, and because it’s salmon…

There’s a kick to the blend of ingredients in the paste, not too hot, with a touch of sweetness too.  It’s easy to whip up and good for any night of the week.

This is a delicacy you don’t have to feel guilty about! 

Baked Citrus Salmon


2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 teaspoons dried dill weed

1 tablespoon chives, chopped

1 tablespoon ancho chile pepper

Salt, to taste

1 lemon, sliced

4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets

Non-stick cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine first 7 ingredients in a small bowl.

Place fillets in a large baking dish that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray.

Divide lemon mixture equally and spread over salmon.

Top fillets with a couple of lemon slices.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork.




  1. Pam, This salmon entree looks really good! The question is why haven't we begun cooking fish at home? Once in awhile we'll cook a pre-prepped ready for the oven fish entree for dinner...but we've never gotten comfortable cooking fish dishes from scratch, even though most preparations are simple. We have to get over our uncertainty and get 'er done! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  2. Dear Pam, I love salmon and this is a very nice recipe. I like the added heat a bit. Have a beautiful day. Blessings dear. Catherine

  3. would you believe that I love fish .. (white fish)and I don't like Salmon. I bet your recipe would be good with my favorite Talapia too.

  4. Looks delicious Pam - I think you've achieved the oven version of blackened salmon.

  5. Looks yummy Pam. We love salmon and are always on the lookout for new recipes.

  6. I'm with Sam! We love salmon and I have a file just for it. I'll be adding this.

    Yes, go Bears! The Baker is out of town (out of the country, actually) so Oliver and I are tailgating it in the den.


  7. aww you always salmon amazing!!!
    Love your recipes:)

  8. looks so tasty! Sam and I have baked Salmon a couple of times in the past two weeks. This is a new thing for us.
    What kind of Salmon do you buy? Our first salmon was good, the second was not as good!!

  9. Salmon is one of my favorite fishes! Actually most favorite! And there never will be to many ways to prepare it :)

  10. Thanks to all of you!
    Shug, the stores here sell Atlantic salmon, sometimes I can find wild Alaskan salmon, which is probably better.

  11. Damn delicious and comforting citrusy salmon!!!
    great job my friend....

  12. Delicious! We just bought some salmon, and we're going to try this!

  13. I could eat salmon every day -- I think -- and this looks so easy and good. I'm keeping an eye out for a good sale and I'll be back to try this recipe. Thanks!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

“He toasted his bacon on a fork and caught the drops of fat on his bread; then he put the rasher on his thick slice of bread, and cut off chunks with a knife, poured his tea into his saucer, and was happy.”
