20 Minute Meal: Low Calorie Salmon with Creamy Lemon Caper Sauce

20 Minute Meal: Low Calorie Salmon with Creamy Lemon Caper Sauce

I had a hot date tonight, my son. I am trying to add more fish to our diet and because my husband doesn’t like it very much I decided to try to eat it on the nights my husband is working. I came up with this yummy recipe tonight! Not only is it super good, but it’s low calorie!

4 (4 oz) salmon pieces (You will notice in my pics I only made 2 pieces for my son and I)
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
3 tablespoons light butter
1/2 cup evaporated milk
2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed

Season salmon with salt and pepper. Place in baking dish and cook for 15-20 minutest at 400 degrees until flaky.

While the salmon is cooking, melt butter in a small pan over medium heat.

Once butter is melted, whisk in evaporated milk

Then add in dill

Lemon pepper seasoning

And lastly the capers

Whisk continuously until reduced to sauce consistency, about 5-8 minutes. Remove from heat. (Make sure you whisk continuously  In between and whining toddler and a crying baby, I stopped whisking and my sauce is not as smooth as I would like it to be.)

Pour sauce over salmon and served with a nicely sized portion of green veggies!
