Getting dinner on the table in record time is a priority, but clean up… yes, clean up is the real deal breaker. That’s why I love making salmon on a sheet pan. If I have a recipe that requires me to use separate bowls and pans for everything, I’m less likely to make it during the week, or maybe at all.
When I was cooking in restaurants or in catering, I rarely had to think about the amount of dirty dishes. Now that I have my own business, there is no (paid) dishwasher! And might I just say, the dishwashers are the unsung heroes of restaurant and catering kitchens everywhere! Without them, things would come to a screeching halt, so thank you… Thank You to all the dishwashers who have cleaned up after me.
As my friends lovingly send me “friendly reminders” that they need recipes for dinner that are healthy, fast, easy and inexpensive with minor clean-up and “oh, if only you were here to cook for me” … I give you this Honey Chipotle Salmon. I’m hoping you will love it as much as I did, but if your family (or a certain friend who refuses to eat what she deems ‘fish food’) is not a fan of fish, feel free to swap it out for chicken.
