For 2: Ritz Salmon

Please don't go thinking this is some fancy dish that I knocked off from the Ritz Carlton...haha - no way Jose.  This is a fantastically easy, quick, healthy, tasty dish made with 3 easy ingredients!  Here's the deal: preheat the oven to 400, put 2 salmon filets (skin or no skin, your choice, if skin, skin side down) on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet, sprinkle each with salt and pepper, spread about a tablespoon of Dijon mustard on them, crunch up about 6 Ritz Crackers and sprinkle the crumbs over them, pressing the crumbs down into the mustard so they stick and bake for about 20 minutes.  TADA serve with some roasted broccoli and there's your dinner!  And since you foil lined both of your baking sheets you have minimal dishes for your husband to wash.  I think next time I might mix up some rosemary or dill with the mustard, or use a coarse ground mustard, or use Triscuits instead of Ritz, or ...the possibilities are endless!  I am so glad to have this simple recipe in our go-to dinner rotation! 

What is your favorite way to make Salmon?  Would you make any changes to this recipe or are you going to try it the simple way, or both?
Sincerely Loving Food,
