Flourless Salmon Piccata in Foil – A healthy and incredibly delicious dinner with flourless piccata sauce poured over salmon and cooked in foil.
Hello Hello! Happy Sunday! I woke up at 5 a.m. this morning and now I’m regretting it. What was I thinking getting up that early?! Nap time can’t come fast enough. Ugh… Until then, I’ll be over here hanging out with a pot of espresso.
Also, does anyone else feel the need to watch The Golden Globes tonight?! Me, either. But I do want to see the OJ Simpson series take the win. I’m no film critic nor do I know much about cinema, but I thought that one was SO well done. GO Ross! Err. I mean, David Schwimmer!!
You probably wanna talk food, eh? How about we discuss this delicious and garlicky capers sauce poured over beautiful salmon and cooked in foil?! Coo’. Hope you love capers because I can eat STAR Fine Foods Capers by the spoonful.
For such tiny green flower buds, capers deliver a whole lot of flavor. They have a tangy, lemony flavor and are best enjoyed in sauces and marinades, as well as a garnish on fish and salads. Pick up a jar right over here. You’ll need it for the fish.
I do have to admit though, it was worth all them dollahs. Cross my heart, this is one finger-licking delicious salmon piccata dinner AND it feeds 4 people, so it ain’t that bad – about 8$ per person when you include all the other ingredients. Trust me, that’s still less than going to Red Lobster…
I’d love nothing more than to dive face first into this delicious mess, again…
First, make the sauce; because we want to avoid extra carbs, this traditional piccata sauce is going to be made withOUT flour. Not so traditional, but still darn amazing.
We’re going to combine some butter and STAR Olive Oil in a pan with lots of garlic, a whole lotta lemon juice and a few delicious tablespoons of capers. While all that comes together, you’ll cut out a large piece of aluminum foil, set the seasoned salmon over it and let it wait for its piccata sauce bath. Once you’ve done all that, you are going to close up the foil, pop the fish in the oven and bake for about 18 to 20 minutes, depending on how well you want that fish done. FYI: Cooked salmon’s internal temp should be at least 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
For a touch of extra special, open up the foil and put the fish under the broiler for a couple of minutes before stuffing your faces with this awesome piece of salmon piccata. Theeee End.
