My 5 year old daughter and I are the only seafood lovers in the house. Which sadly means that I don't get to make seafood for dinner as often as I would like since half of my household won't eat it. However on evenings when my husband is working late & my son is over at his dad's, I like to treat my daughter & I to a special seafood dinner just for the two of us without a lot of prep and fuss. That is why I am loving the new Easy for You! Oven-Ready Seafood options at the seafood counter at my local Kroger! :)

Choose from seafood options such as shrimp, tilapia, & salmon, and choose your favorite seasoning and garnishes like Lemon Pepper, Asian BBQ, Nashville Hot, & more. Then watch as they prep, garnish, and then seal your seasoned seafood into an oven-ready bag right at the counter at no extra charge! The flavor possibilities are pretty much endless. My daughter & I opted for the wild caught sockeye salmon with Sweet Bourbon seasoning and a couple of pats of butter. I whipped up a side dish of homemade Caramelized Onion & Parmesan Mashed Potatoes to go with our super easy & flavorful salmon, and we were ready to dig into our seafood dinner for two in no time at all...

Ordering and baking our Sweet Bourbon Salmon was such an easy and quick process from start to finish. You can purchase just the amount of seafood that you need, and they will custom cut your fillets before seasoning them with your flavor combination of choice. This recipe serves two, but you can easily double or triple this recipe to serve more. The easy to follow baking instructions are right on the bag ensuring that your seafood is perfectly cooked every time.

Not only do I love my local Kroger seafood department for their new Easy For You! Oven-Ready Seafood service, but I also love knowing that I can feel good about the seafood that I am serving myself and my daughter because of their commitment to sustainably caught seafood. From wild caught to farm raised, Kroger works with fisheries from all over the world that are Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified, that are in MSC assessment, or are presently engaged in a fishery improvement project.

Sweet Bourbon Salmon with Caramelized Onion & Parmesan Mashed Potatoes
by Frugal Foodie Mama
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Ingredients (Serves 2)
  • About 1 lb. of wild caught sockeye salmon (cut into 2 fillets) seasoned with Sweet Bourbon & butter from your Kroger Easy For You seafood department
  • 2-3 medium Simply Truth Organic Russet Potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter + 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 of a small onion, sliced thinly
  • Pinch of salt, pinch of sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Private Selection Shaved Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
Instructions
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Place the peeled & chopped potatoes in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to medium-high heat and continue cooking until potatoes are fork tender, about 15 minutes.

While the potatoes are boiling, prepare the caramelized onions. Heat the 1 tbsp of butter & 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat in a small saute pan. Once the butter is melted, add in the sliced onions and turn the heat down to medium. Continue cooking, stirring frequently. After 10 minutes of cooking, sprinkle with the pinch of salt & sugar. Continue sauteing until soft & golden brown, about 15-20 minutes total.

When the onions & potatoes are about halfway down cooking, place the Easy For You Oven-Ready salmon fillets packet on a baking sheet. Cook according to the package instructions. (1 lb. of salmon should take about 18 minutes to bake in the oven.)

Once the potatoes are fork tender, drain the water from the pot. Add in the 2 tbsp of butter and milk. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes, butter, and milk until creamy. Stir in the Parmesan cheese & caramelized onions. Season with salt & pepper, to taste.

Once the salmon is done baking, plate each fillet. And a couple of scoops of the Caramelized Onion & Parmesan Mashed Potatoes. Serve with a freshly steamed or roasted veggie like baby carrots or asparagus, if desired. Enjoy immediately.
