Remember the ranch dressing mix I posted a few weeks ago? This stuff?
Like most people, I use it for more than making ranch dressing. I use it for a ton of recipes that call for a packet of dry ranch dressing mix. I use it for dips. And I use it for this delicious ranch salmon. This succulent and savory 30-minute meal.
This is one of those meals that takes less than half an hour and very little effort. I typically make it on a busy night. If it weren’t for the cost of salmon, it’d be a weekly throwdown meal. With the ranch seasoning ready to go, the time taken to measure and combine herbs is already done for you. Just shake and bake…so to speak.
It’s so easy, in fact, that my blog writing plugin is going to tell me that this post isn’t long enough and that I need to add more. But I will resist. You’re really just here for the recipe anyway. 😉
Are you ready for this long cooking lesson?
Step 1- Pour melted butter over your salmon.
Step 2- Generously sprinkle dry ranch mix over the butter and rub it all in evenly.
Step 3- Roast in the oven or grill.
That’s it. You’re done. I’ve included a printable recipe card, but really you don’t need to measure. Just have enough butter and enough ranch mix- which is really a personal taste thing.
I have it here on a salad, but I’ve also flaked it and mixed it into pasta. What would you do with it? Let me know in the comments!
