Salmon Sliders With Dill Yogurt Sauce

 

Salmon Sliders With Dill Yogurt Sauce

2- 6-8 ounce salmon fillets

Two tablespoons olive oil

Salt and black pepper, to taste.

Four brioche slider buns, for serving

Romaine lettuce, for serving.

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a shallow baking pan or baking sheet with parchment paper. Place salmon skin side down on the baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over the top of the salmon and season with salt and pepper to taste.

 

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Allow cooling slightly before cutting into halves.

 

Place your sliced brioche buns (Toast them slightly. It makes all the difference.) on a cutting board or large plate. Spread a good amount of sauce on both the tops and bottoms of the buns. Place a piece of salmon on the bun and top with desired toppings!

 

Dill Yogurt Sauce

One cup greek yogurt

1 1/2 tablespoons fresh dill, finely minced.

One tablespoon dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

One clove garlic, minced.

One teaspoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

 

Place all of your ingredients in a small bowl and combine well. Refrigerate and chill until ready to use. (Make-ahead. The longer it sits, the better!)

Rubber Ducky Pool Party

Riley’s first  birthday is not until the 19th. I simply cannot believe she is going to be one! It’s completely bittersweet. I have an unbelievable amount of mixed emotions. I am happy, proud and excited to see what the next year has in store,  but at the same time I’m sad that she has grown up so quickly. I literally don’t know where the time has gone. I now know how my parents have felt all of these years.

We decided to celebrate her first year early since we would be traveling on her big day. We threw her a rubber ducky pool party! It turned out amazing considering it had been raining all week. The sun made an appearance during her party and disappeared right after as the rain continued, it was amazing. God is so good, and he certainly does hear all of our prayers.

I purchased all of the items for her party at Target and ordered her invitations from Tiny prints. The party totaled about $400 including all food  and we had about 20 people at the party. I made Riley’s smash cake from scratch. It was completely organic and low in sugar (I have a video tutorial in my previous post). All of the food was also organic for that day. We don’t always eat the best and organic, but we do when we can.

Thank you to all of our family and friends that came out to Riley’s party. It was truly a special day and we appreciate each and every one of you!

Here are a few photos from the party! Enjoy!
