I only had a vague idea what I wanted to do with my salmon last week. In the past I've not made a whole lot of seafood and fish. It was just too expensive when feeding a large family. Today it fits better with our budget and it tastes so good!
I only wanted wild caught salmon, not farmed salmon. I found what I was looking for at Costco...
It is very nice for cooking small amounts. It is a 2lb package and each piece of fish is individually wrapped making it handy to just pull out what you need.
I used about 1 ½ lbs of fish, which was 4 pieces.
I cut up a small onion and a few mushrooms and sautéed these in a large frying pan in a bit of olive oil until they were just starting to soften. Then I put the fillets in the frying pan and sprinkled them with salt and pepper...
I let them cook for about 5 minutes and turned them over...
I fried them for another 3 or 4 minutes and poured on a little Italian dressing and let it cook another 2 or 3 minutes and turned over again.. to make sure they were done.
I served them with brussel sprouts and garlic bread for a very easy and quick meal that tasted amazing!
Easy Salmon Fillets

3 or 4 mushrooms, sliced
2 to 3T olive oil
1 to 1 ½lbs salmon fillets

In a large frying pan sautee onion and mushrooms in olive oil until they just begin to get soft. Lay salmon fillets on veggies in frying pan. Let cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Turn salmon fillets over. Allow to cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Pour Italian salad dressing over fillets and let the salmon cook for another 2 to 3 minutes or until the fish flakes and is cooked all the way through.
Serve and enjoy!!
