LMP Lemon and Dill Salmon for 6

Ingredients:

2 pounds salmon filet zest of 1 lemon 1 lemon sliced into rounds 1 garlic clove, grated palmful of chopped dill Extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Coat the salmon with olive oil. Combine the lemon zest, grated garlic and chopped dill and smother all over the salmon. Top the salmon with lemon slices. Bake for 10 minutes or until the salmon is opaque and easily flakes. I garnished my serving platter with the dill that I had left over.

I combined butter lettuce, sliced almonds, red onion and orange segments together with the easiest, most delish dressing ever...yes I got this recipe from my son's school. It's THAT EASY:

I picked up a crusty loaf of French bread, sliced and served on the cake stand that is included in our party box. In the middle I put a small container of olive oil mixed with balsamic for my guests to dip.
