Hi, Friends! Happy Sunday!

Hey! ‘Tis the weekend before Christmas! How exciting!!

I think I might be a bit more excited than you because I get to celebrate two Christmases – yours and mine! What I mean by that is, I celebrate the birth of Christ on January 7th, but I celebrate the getting “giving of gifts” on December 25th. I know, it’s pretty awesome.

I also get to stuff my face like it’s nobody’s business on both days. But this also means that I have duties to tend to on both days. Cooking, baking, cleaning, sleeping… All I have to say to that is, thank goodness for fish! WHY fish?! Because fish cooks in like 10.056 seconds! Or was that minutes?

This is the sort of meal that you can eat and feel like this is the good life. I know it’s only salmon, but you have no idea just how good this really is. The buttah is the key to it all. This Lemon-Pepper Finishing Butter by Private Selection is simply delicious. I use it on chicken, I use it on veggies, I even spread it all over my morning toast.

Can I be completely open for just a second? There’s this other finishing butter they have – it’s the Cinnamon Brown Sugar – oh my bejesus! That one? I didn’t even bother to spread it on anything. It went from the spoon to zee mouth. Let’s not even get started on the Caramel Sea Salt. Can you imagine? I want to put that on top of every.thing.

Here’s what is so totally clever about this Lemon-Pepper Salmon recipe. The fish is baked in foil with other fresh ingredients, and it literally takes minutes to prepare and bake. I make this very often, but the addition of the butter took it over the top. The meal is wonderfully simple and, with just a few ingredients, it is a treat in itself. With a glass of chardonnay on the side, this is my comfort food.

  1. My parents celebrated Orthodox Christmas privately as my brother and I were all about the Canadian/US Christmas season with gifts and decorations. 🙂

    Using these convenient and flavourful butter additions to your meal is a good idea especially when every spare minute is budgeted for while you’re running around doing so many things.

  2. I celebrate twice too!! Having grown up in Russia I just can’t give up another Christmas and of course New Year’s Eve is also huge over there so the festivities never end here. 🙂 Merry Christmas to you and yours!!
