Salmon & Mashed Potatoes

Are you a fish lover?

Do you crave sushi?

Drool over the prospect of swordfish or mahi-mahi?

Not me.

I hate fish.

I’m terrified of them alive and swimming, and I can’t stomach the ‘fishiness’ of them in food.

Blech!

BUT, I do love this dinner that my Step-Dad makes.  You get the nutrition of a salmon without the strong flavour or texture of it.

Even better – it’s so easy even I can’t screw it up!

Steps:

1.  Make up your mashed potatoes.

2.  Preheat your oven to 425°  fahrenheit.

I buy these salmon steaks at Costco.  They are individually packaged, relatively inexpensive and they taste great (as far as salmon goes).

3.  Place the frozen salmon steaks on a cookie sheet (lined with tinfoil)

You’re done your salmon mashed potatoes!

You can get fancy if you want and buy fresh salmon steaks and add a bit of Montreal steak spice to the fish before covering with mashed potatoes – they do taste better, but since this was both Mom-that-hates-to-cook-night and kids-that-complain-about-everything night – we went with the basics.

And we all ate every single bite!

Thank you Papa for the idiot-proof great recipe!

Have a great one!
