Best Baked Salmon
Moist and tender, and translucent, salmon is the best. When I competed on Fox Network’s MasterChef, yes, my dish was salmon.
When I presented it to the judges, one of whom was the infamous and testy, Chef Gordon Ramsay, he look at me dead in the eyes as I placed it on the table.
He was standing across from me. We were almost nose to nose being only about five feet apart. All he said in his trademark British accent as he looked me deadpan in the eyes and picked up his fork to taste was, ‘When I cut into this salmon, it had better be moist and translucent inside.”
Was I shaking in my cowgirl boots? Gosh, no because I knew it was moist, tender and translucent inside!

Salmon, in my humble opinion, goes with just about any side dish. And, y’all I love greens, especially fresh collards from Captain Dale’s garden!
Captain Dale is a dear friend of ours. He grows the most flourishing and glorious greens during the season they best grow. Here’s one of the recipes that I created with his greens, Pan Seared Salmon and Fresh Greens.
