Honey Lemon Garlic Salmon
My fingers reek.
My fingers smell like a garlicy - salmony love affair. Aside from having garlic fingers this salmon is deeeelish.
When I'm having a crazy busy week I love a super quick + easy dinner I can throw together. If I'm really really really busy I just go to chipotle ;) but thats another story... Alright so you can literally get this salmon together and eat it in an hour. So basically..
6:00 PM: Get home from class + gym
6:02 PM: Take shoes off + pee
6:05 PM: Wash hands, make 6 ingredient honey-lemon-garlic marinade
6:10 PM: Pop salmon in the fridge for 1/2 hour
6:12 PM: Take a shower
6:40 PM: Pop salmon in the oven
6:45 PM: Put my feet up + check email + turn netflix on
6:55 PM: CHOW!
