Day 20 - Citrus Salmon, Roasted Cauliflower, and Sauteed Zucchini

Still playing catch up on the 31 Day Challenge!!  Day 20…Greg had pool…which meant I could make anything I wanted…and I wanted fish…specifically SALMON…because Greg doesn't like fish.  <jerk>  JUST KIDDING BABY!  LOVE YOU!

ANYWAY…tonight, was… 

Citrus Salmon with Roasted Cauliflower, and Sauteed Zucchini
1 head of cauliflower (cut into bit-sized pieces)
1 lemon (sliced into disks)
1 orange (sliced into disks)
1/2 lb fresh salmon
1 zucchini (sliced into disks)
1 yellow "summer" squash (sliced into disks)
1 medium sweet (vidalia) onion (sliced)
2 tsp dill (fresh)


  1. Get that cauliflower in first…cut the cauliflower slightly coated with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and get them in the oven (at 350).
  2. Cut up the lemon and orange, and put a layer on the bottom of a cookie sheet (this will be the "bottom" of your salmon).
  3. Layer the salmon on top of the lemon and orange, and put another citrus layer on the top of the salmon.
  4. Season LIGHTLY with salt and pepper, and put it in the oven (with the cauliflower).
  5. While your salmon and cauliflower are in the oven…
  6. Put some oil in the pan, and throw in the onion.  Cook them until a little translucent. 
  7. Add the zucchini and squash.  Sauté until SLIGHTLY tender (you don't want it to get too mushy!!)
  8. Take everything out of the oven (and off the stove), and put it on a plate…
  9. ENJOY!!!
