Steamed salmon for lunch!

When I was at the grocery store the other day, I grabbed some frozen salmon for my little mister to try. I wasn't sure how to cook it, so I looked around online, and decided that the easiest way would be to steam it in a parchment packet in the oven. So here's what I did (the pictures are TERRIBLE quality...they're from my phone. Bear with me, please!)
Take your salmon, and put it onto a parchment sheet. I'm sure you could use tin foil too if that's what you have! Add seasonings...I used olive oil, a few sprinkles of dill, and a little bit of lemon pepper. Add a small amount of water...this is what steams it! (I think I added about a Tablespoon)


Wrap the edges. Make sure that they're wrapped nice and tight, so that the steam doesn't escape!
Pop it into the oven at 425 degrees for about ten minutes. I promise you, it will come out nice and flaky and beautiful!

The last thing you want to do is....
Give it to your baby and let him enjoy it! My little mister LOVED it! He couldn't get enough...and it's nice that I've had some leftover for the past 2 days, so he can eat it for lunch. You can also give it to your cat...Snoop enjoyed a few bites too!
