Salmon with Horseradish Dijon

We really love salmon at our house (ahem, well the ADULTS love salmon...) so I love to find new ways to prepare it. This variety is SUPER easy, and super tasty, AND super fast. That's my weekday dinner trifecta! 

I love the strong flavor of the horseradish and mustard against the salmon, and the green onions give it a nice little crunch. 

We loved this with a baked potato and stir fried cabbage, but rice and any green vegetable would also be a good accompaniment. 

If you need a break from chicken or beef in your dinner rotation, give this tasty fish a try.

Salmon with Horseradish Dijon

4 - 6 oz. salmon filets
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. finely sliced green onions
2 tsp. dijon mustard
1 tsp. prepared horseradish
2 Tbsp. parmesan cheese

Place salmon filets on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Salt and pepper the filets to your taste. 

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, green onions, mustard, and horseradish. Use 1/4th of the mixture on each filet, covering each top. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.

Bake at 425 for 10 minutes or until salmon is flaky.  Serves 4.

Greek Meatballs

I recently found myself with too much feta cheese, so decided to use some of it to try a new meatball recipe. These meatballs have amazing Greek flavors, and we really enjoyed them with a cucumber tzatziki salad and sauteed green beans.

These Greek meatballs are so easy to make, and so quick! You can have dinner on the table in 30 minutes, perfect for a busy night. 

The feta with the herbs and spices really makes these unique.

If you want to up your meatball game, try these beauties!

Greek Meatballs

1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 cup panko
1/4 cup finely diced onion
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 egg
1 tsp.  parsley
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. coriander
2 oz. feta crumbles

Line a large baking sheet with foil. 

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the beef, and mix well. Add in the ground beef and use your hands to incorporate all the ingredients.

Roll the mixture into 1" meatballs and place on the tray. Bake at 450 for 12-15 minutes, depending on if your meatballs are on the smaller or larger size...

Serve with cucumber salad and roasted or sauteed vegetables.  Serves 4.
