My husband, however, IS a fan of salmon. And in order to add some variety to our menu (in hopes of raising a fish-eater) and do something just for my sweet hubby, I've found a recipe I enjoy just as much as he. And it is packed with fresh, healthy ingredients that I feel good serving to our family.
Give it a try if you already like salmon, or if you have a salmon-lover in the house.

1/2 cup Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing (Kraft)
Heat oven to 375. Place fish fillets skin side down in 9x13 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Combine remaining ingredients; spoon over fish. Bake 20-25 minutes until fish flakes easily with fork.

Budget-friendly idea: I plan my meals weekly and do grocery shopping just one day a week. I plan to cook fresh salmon the day I go grocery shopping because you can get a much better price on marked down fish that is nearing the "use by date." Plus it's such an easy, almost one-dish meal, that I don't mind cooking it after having a shopping day!
