Salmon & Yogurt Cucumber Salad


     Whenever I thought of making salmon I always thought it was this huge fancy long process, cause you know, salmon is kind of a fancy food right? Well I still like to think of it as a 'fancy' food :) but it is the EASIEST thing to make. No joke. 

     This meal is perfect for a Sunday dinner or for inviting friends or family over. You can impress them because you made 'fancy' salmon, but little do they know it only took you 5 minutes and about 25 minutes baking in the oven. That's it, 5 minutes is even a stretch in this case. 
Here's what you use:
Salmon
Fresh Lemon or Lemon Juice
Lemon Pepper Seasoning
     Pre heat your oven to 400 degrees. Place tin foil on a pan so the clean up is even easier :) Squeeze half of a fresh lemon onto the salmon (or use lemon juice) and then sprinkle lemon pepper seasoning on it! Put in the oven and cook until the fish is flakey but not too pink, usually about 20-25 minutes. 
     The yogurt cucumber salad is very simple and easy too, it's also a perfect side to go with salmon. This recipe is inspired by my German mother in law. Whenever she makes salmon she always has some kind of side like this. I made my own healthier version and I love it just as much. 
Ingredients:
Cucumber
Plain Greek Yogurt
Dill
     Cut up cucumbers, then add yogurt and dill until you like the consistency. This meal would be really yummy with some brown rice or quinoa as well. Now go impress your dinner party!
