Ranch Seasoned Salmon is seared to perfection and incredibly tasty thanks to my homemade ranch seasoning mix and topped with Creamy Ranch Sauce.
Ingredients
  • For the ranch seasoning mix:
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons dill weed
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • For the ranch seasoned salmon:
  • 12 ounces to 1 pound fresh salmon filets about 2 filets
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning mix recipe above
  • For the creamy ranch sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons ranch seasoning mix recipe above
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayo find a brand that uses all-natural ingredients in a the health food section of your grocery store or use an additional 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Combine all seasoning mix ingredients in a small jar or bowl. Stir together or shake closed jar to fully combine.
  2. Rub salmon (flesh side only) with about ½ tablespoon extra virgin olive oil and then 1 tablespoon seasoning mix (don't forget to rub down the sides of the salmon).
  3. In a nonstick pan, add about ½ tablespoon extra virgin olive oil and heat to medium-high. Once pan is hot, add the salmon, flesh side down and cook for 3 minutes with lid on the pan. Flip the salmon and cook fish all the way through (uncovered), about 5 more minutes. (This timing was perfect- you don't want overcooked salmon and it will continue to cook a bit even after removed from heat.)* Set aside.
  4. While salmon is cooking, stir together all ranch sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  5. For the complete meal (pictured), preheat oven for waffle fries before mixing together seasoning mix. While you're prepping the salmon, sauce and a light salad, fries can be cooking. Everything will come together in less than 30 minutes.
Recipe Notes

*If your salmon fillets are extra thick, you may want to cook them a minute or two longer.
