Chelsea Mahan-Icenhour made this delicious baked salmon with herb butter from the cookbook "Best of the Best." This article was written by volunteer Chelsea Mahan-Icenhour.

Last month, I checked out an amazing cookbook Best of the Best: The Best Recipes from the 25 Best Cookbooks of the Year from the 21 Acres Library. Join me as I cook my way through this delicious book!

For my first recipe, I decided to try a quick, delicious, and great last-minute dinner idea with Baked Wild Salmon with Herb Butter (pages 54-55). The recipe calls for wild salmon fillet, which you can find in the 21 Acres Farm Market from Lummi Island.  The total time it took to not only prepare but also cook the salmon was only about 35 minutes. Definitely a quick and easy meal to cook, very tasteful and flavorful.


Check out the Library


If you want to try this book or any other book at the library, you can go to any one of the team members and ask where the library is. Checking out a book is super simple, and they have lots of options: cookbooks, gardening, children’s books, and more. They have little pockets on the inside of each book with a check out card where you just print your name, email address, and a return date. They usually allow books 30 day check out periods and may be checked out longer if needed. When you have done that, you will need to file the index card in the little card filing box by the author’s last name. That’s all you need to start reading!
