Here is a fun steak dinner - but without the steak! It was made in 20 minutes flat - and all we had to do was cut the potato. On the plate: steak oven fries, steak roasted mushrooms, salmon steak and steamed green beans.
Heat oven to 450 degrees.
1 cup whole mushrooms, washed
1 bag green beans
1 salmon steak - 3 ounces
2 teaspoons barbecue sauce
vegetable oil spray
garlic parsley powder
balsamic vinegar or glaze
Cut 1 potato in wedges and place on cookie tray that is lightly sprayed with vegetable spray. Sprinkle potatoes with garlic-parsley mix and black pepper. Place in oven for 15 minutes and turn over for the last 5 minutes. Potatoes are done when crispy on the outside but tender on the inside.
Place salmon in baking dish and spread the top with the barbecue sauce. Put in the oven and bake 15 minutes.
Place mushrooms in a baking dish and bake 15 minutes.
When potatoes, mushrooms and fish are almost done, microwave the green beans until tender, about 3 minutes.
Serve all together. We garnished the potatoes with a drizzle of ketchup and the mushrooms with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar glaze (you can also use balsamic vinegar).
