Meal Mondays: Southwest Coho Salmon

Southwest Coho Salmon

If you recall I won some delicious Sizzlefish a few weeks ago and I also won SOME MORE!!!!  Yes!  I am definitely feeling lucky winning all of these giveaways.  I finally got through the majority of the fish in my first cooler and Coho Salmon is one of the last few pieces left.

Wegmans Basting Oil

My favorite seasoned cooking oil.

I don’t know about you but I have never tried Coho Salmon so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I guess I can expect it to taste like..well…..SALMON but it was fun to eat nonetheless.

I decided to make Lindsay Cotter’s Southwest Rub  used in her Baked Southwest Trout with Sage recipe and can I tell you this fish had NO CHANCE.  It was quick, easy and most importantly very tasty.

Enjoy the recipe and if you decide to make it for yourself share photos on my Facebook page & while you’re there LIKE the page.  :-).
