Yummy dinner and a 10 minute Nectarine Crumble for dessert!

I love having the fresh herbs right outside the kitchen door, I'm using them so much more than ever before.

For dinner we had a lemon pepper salmon.

It was really quick, just the juice from half a lemon salt and pepper and I baked it in the oven. Then made a sauce using lots of fresh dill, greek yogurt, a splash of buttermilk (just to loosen up the yogurt a little and get a consistency I liked) and a squeeze of lemon juice (less than a tsp I'd guess).

On the side we had some boiled potatoes tossed with a little butter, chives, parsley, salt and pepper. Steamed Broccoli and rolls. (Boy do I love those dinner rolls that come in the freezer section. You can just grab two and heat them up. It's so much easier than cooking a whole tube for just two people!)

For dessert I made a quick little crumble. I wasn't sure how it would turn out but it was delicious and I'd certainly make it again.

The best part about making it- it was lighting quick. Less than 10 minutes and it was in the oven! Here's the recipe:

  • Slice two nectarines into wedges (about 6 pieces from one piece of fruit) and place them into a very shallow casserole dish.

  • Lightly drizzled honey over all the wedges (likely about a 1 tbsp).

  • Sprinkle some cinnamon over the top.

  • Last but certainly not least, crumble 1 stick of an Oats and Honey Nature Valley Granola Bar (or a similar granola) over the top.
  • Bake covered in a 375 oven until the nectarines are tender. About (10-15 min.) Uncover for the last 5 minutes of cooking.

The juice from the fruit and the honey made a nice sauce. I served it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was a knock-out good dessert.

Of coarse if you want to make it for more than two, use more fruit and double rest of the ingredients.

If you make it I'd love to here your thoughts.
