To say that this dinner is family friendly would be an understatement.  My 10-year-old LOVES seafood.  I was a little worried what the 3-year-old would think since he can tend to be a picky eater but he gobbled up a few pieces I cut then asked for more.

The fish that I used was on sale and already came seasoned with a spicy peppercorn marinade.  You can choose one already seasoned, it really added to the flavor of the dish and wasn’t overpowered by the topping I added.  This will take one average sized sheet pan.

How to make Sheet Pan Salmon:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Cover with tin foil then oil it so the fish doesn’t stick.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Wash and chop the vegetables (my favorite-check out my other Sunday Supper recipe Asparagus Soup).  This is Michigan though so in the winter I use Brussels sprouts and green beans.

Brussels sprouts and green beans cleaned and in a colander.

Place the salmon onto the greased sheet pan.

Now combine the ingredients for the creamy topping: mayo, Parmesan cheese, garlic, artichoke hearts, and lemon juice.

Then make the crunchy topping: in a microwave dish melt the butter for around 30 seconds.  Once melted add the breadcrumbs and stir until the butter and breadcrumbs combine compeltely.

Spread the mayonnaise mixture on top the salmon.

Place it all into the preheated oven and cook for 30 minutes.

I served this meal with some mashed sweet potatoes.  So sweet and creamy they were a perfect balance with the fish.

And here you…..

Salmon Tacos paired with craft beer and avocado ranch dressing

We are just getting back from a H-O-T end of school year vacation to Florida. Ugh. While it has been cooler here lately in Michigan, I will not complain about it after spending a week there.

When we got home it was finally feeling like summer so to celebrate I’m making salmon tacos with fresh tomatoes, creamy avocado ranch, and crispy tortillas. This meal was giving me ALL the warm weather feels.

What beer pairs well with Salmon Tacos?

The beer: Local’s Light from Short’s Brewing.

For this taco and craft beer pairing ‘light’ meets ‘light’. A subtle beer that’s perfect for a summer afternoon then transitions perfectly to enjoy with this seafood taco recipe.

What to watch while eating tacos?

Season 3 of Claws just started! If you aren’t watching this show, you are missing out. It also works well with this Mitten Movie Night because it’s set in Florida.

How to Make Salmon Tacos:

Start by preparing the salmon. Lay the salmon out and sprinkle with a mixture of chili pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, paprika and cumin.

Next, cook the salmon in a frying pan with 2 tsp olive oil, skin side facing up. Fry for 3-5 minutes, then flip. Cook an addition 3-5 minutes.

Remove from pan and flake the salmon by using two forks.

How to make Avocado Ranch Dressing:

In a food processor add the skinned and pitted avocado, sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, onion powder, white vinegar, salt, and pepper.

Pulse the ingredients adding a light stream of olive oil until you get the consistency that you like. I used about 2 tsp of olive oil as I like it to thicker.
