A Simple Dinner:  BAKED SALMON SEASONED WITH CUMIN – TURMERIC – PARSLEY AND IN LEMON – CLAM JUICE SAUCE

This is so easy.  I didn’t think the seasonings would work together, but, boy, was I wrong!  I will return to this recipe. . .

For 2:

–salmon (size of 2 decks of cards, one-half pound); or substitute canned salmon, 1 can (microwave only 1 and one-half minutes, just to heat up, with the canned salmon)

–cumin, turmeric, parsley (dried, one-half teaspoon each)

–clam juice (one-eighth cup)

–salt and pepper

–extra virgin olive oil

–lemon juice (bottled; 3 squirts)

1 – Place the salmon in a covered baking dish.  Drench in lemon juice.  Pour in the clam juice.  Season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle turmeric, cumin, and parsley (in that order) on top.  Finish with a few drops of extra virgin olive oil.  Microwave on high for 3 minutes and 40 seconds.  (Salmon is best if slightly undercooked, to be flaky.)

2 – Serve the salmon hot, with a little sauce dribbled on top.

–salmon inspired by Real Simple magazine.
