The 81st recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Roasted Provencal Salmon and Fennel, and can be found online here. The theme for the week was chosen by Gaye: When Life Gives You Lemons.
Lemon is my favorite ingredient, sweet or savory, if there is lemon in the recipe, I'm usually in right away. I always have a bag of lemons on hand and I don't use them sparingly. It's not unusual for me to substitute other ingredients when I am out to avoid a trip to the market, but when it comes to lemons, if I'm using the last one, the next stop for me is the produce department to restock my lemons.
This recipe has lemon wedges, lemon juice, and lemon zest...your complete lemon round up! Salmon and lemon are MFEO (Made For Each Other) and seriously, you can't really serve me any kind of fish without a side of lemon, it just wouldn't be right. Loved this recipe, it was fast and easy, and the fennel is best ever when it is roasted with those crisp little brown edges and that nice bit of lemon to perk it all up and make it sing its own song, as in you could just make a meal out of roasted fennel and lemon. Definitely a repeat, the only question is how often.
