Bikini Season Salmon and Broccoli {Recipes 97 & 98}

My sister-in-law, Kelsey gave me the Glamour Magazine Cookbook for Christmas. 

I have flipped through the book many times since I got it and I am so excited to try more of the recipes. The Frozen Mango Mimosa recipe came originally from the book. We just changed up the sorbet flavor. 

Anyhow, these 2 recipes also came from this cookbook. It turned out to be a light and delicious meal. It wasn't hard at all and was really tasty, not to mention healthy!

Bikini Season Salmon

{borrowed, adapted and enjoyed from Glamour's Cookbook}

Serves 4
{we cut ours in half and still had 4 servings!}


Four 8-ounce skin-on salmon fillets
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup dry white wine
½ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
½ cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons capers*

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Put the salmon skin-side down in a glass baking pan. Rub the salmon fillets with 1-tablespoon olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Let the salmon sit in the pan for at least 10 minutes. 

2) Drizzle the white wine over the salmon, then sprinkle 1/4 cup parsley on top; save the remaining parsley to use later. Put the pan in the oven and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the salmon fillets are opaque. {I overcooked mine a bit, it was still good but a bit dry. So make sure to take it out on time!

3) Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the lemon juice, capers, remaining parsley, and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Top each salmon fillet with the lemon juice mixture and serve immediately. 


We made this broccoli recipe from the same book as a side.

Beyond Basic Broccoli


1 1/2 lbs of fresh broccoli cut into florets
3 T. Olive oil
4 garlic cloves thinly sliced
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp or less red pepper flakes {optional}

1) Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. meanwhile, fill a large bowl with ice water. Add brocolli to the boiling water and cook, uncovered until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer the brocooli to the ice water using tongs or a slotted spoon, then drain in a colander. Wipe out the pot.

2) Ad the olive oil and garlic to the pot and cook over medium high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until just golden, about 1 minute. Add the broccoli and cook while stirring for 2 minutes. Add salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste. 


What is your go-to healthy but tasty meal?

All for now,


*capers are pickled flower buds. They smell disgusting, but they really do taste good! Kyle liked them too! :)
