Roasted Salmon and Crispy Potatoes

Roasted Salmon and Crispy Potatoes I am back on board again after such a great holiday with family and visiting family in Italy. But all good things come to an end and far too quickly. Not that my every day life is to be sniffed at. I have an enjoyable job with good bosses, a wonderful husband and son and I get to blog in my spare time about food. What can beat that?

Last night, I felt a need for healthy and nutritious, so salmon (all that omega 3 stuff) and spinach (made Popeye strong) were employed along with some great crispy potatoes. There’s probably a little too much oil to be on a slimmer’s menu but it tasted great and the scales didn’t complain afterwards. Most of the preparation was at the same time as the cooking so all in all, it probably took about 30 minutes to make.
