Dudes, my little boy is turning three next week. I mean, THREE! Just like that! These were the shortest three years of my life. It’s funny how I have no recollection of my life pre-babies except for some vague memories of showering, brunching, spontaneity, free time, and sleep. We’re having a party for his little buddies from the neighborhood and school. Right now my house is swimming in dinosaur goodies and I’m nerding out with some adorable DIYs. I have some mommy posts forming in my head, so keep a look out for those. Or don’t, if you’re not into that kind of thing. Anywho…

Lemon + Herb Sriracha Salmon

Salmon is a weekly occurrence in our house. Typically we just throw some olive oil, salt, and pepper on it and call it a day. If I’m feeling a wee bit more ambitious, I try for this or this, but I’m always on the hunt for a fun new way to cook it. Well well well, what could be better than this. Garlic? Check. Sriracha? Check. Lemon. Yes ma’am! Oh, and just 5 minute prep and then sit on my fine booty while it bakes. No big deal, call me Martha (insert favorite word) Stewart. I rock. 

But seriously. Hot sauce has been kinda my jam in recent months. I never really went for it before, but lately I’ve been throwing it on everything. So, why not salmon?! I came across an inspiring recipe on pinterest (linked below), I jacked up the garlic, I added some lemon, and bam, we have ourselves a winner. This, my friends, is what I call awesome. and tasty. and delicious. and I plan on repeating this dinner over and over until I’m sick of it. So, I guess what I’m saying is you should give it a whirl. Really, it’s so simple. 

So! Here’s what you do:

Whisk together the hot sauce, garlic, and avocado oil. These are my favorite hot sauces: hank sauce and fix hot sauce. Place salmon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Pour the hot sauce mixture on top and brush until coated. Pace a few lemon slices on top and some fresh herbs.
