Oven Roasted Salmon with Hollandaise

It is no great secret that I am not the best with leftovers.  It is just not one of me strong suits and I have come to accept that over the years.  

As I try to become more and more budget conscious I am realizing that leftovers don't have to mean that you are eating the exact same thing over and over again.

Recently we had broccoli and hollandaise for Mother's Day dinner.  Because I typically cook too much of everything, we naturally had leftovers of the hollandaisse.  The next night I was trying to figure out something that would be quick but still tasty that I could make for dinner.  

I didn't have anything in the fridge that was going to make a meal so I knew I was going to have to go to the store for at least some ingredients. 

Suddenly I had an idea....these moments do make me feel like a lightbulb has literally lit up over my head.  I thought about some salmon someone had once made for me that seemed super easy, and was absolutely scrumptious, and then I put two and delicious together and thought I could top that tasty salmon with some of the leftover hollandaise and VOILA! I would have a meal...with some roasted sweet potatoes and some more steamed broccoli....it's my fave after all!

So that is what we did.  With a few salmon filets and just a couple more ingredients from the store a perfectly divine meal was created in less than 30 minutes!

Oven Roasted Salmon Filets with Hollandaise

Salmon Filet 
Olive Oil
Garlic Salt
Worchestershire Sauce

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  
Brush each piece of salmon with a little olive oil dusting each filet with garlic salt, rosemary, thyme (or any savory herbs you prefer but don't get crazy, they can easily overpower it if you aren't careful....less is definitely more in this case) and Worcestershire sauce. 
Bake in 375 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Serve immediately with a hollandaise sauce.

Pin It!
