Savory Summer Salmon

Few GREAT things need much introduction or description. This fish is one of them…
Just. look. at. It.
If THAT isn’t aesthetically pleasing, what is?
The original recipe comes from Paula Dean yet there is ZERO added fat.  It’s perfect. It’s healthy, tender, flaky, and perfect for your summer dinner table. Here we go.
Start with a beautiful piece of Salmon.  .
 Make The House Seasoning mix. I made half and still have a container full of it.
 Season the fish with the House Seasoning. DO NOT use all of it. Just season as desired. More than a couple pinches is good.
 Cover the fish with the Onions, peppers, and orange segments. Next time i’d use half an onion (i thought there were too many onions. )
 Take some fresh Dill and chop it finely
 Combine dill, strawberries, and honey in a small bowl. (I used half)
 Add Green Onions, Garlic, and remaining ingredients.
 Juice two lemons and pour juice over the veggies/fish.
Follow with strawberry mixture
 Cover completely with foil and roll edges up so juice doesn’t seep through. Pierce top of foil a couple times with knife. Bake for 45 minutes.
remove from oven.
