There is magic in the mountains. Every season has an alluring mood with vibrant colors that highlight the beauty of the hills. Here is a list of ten lovely mountains in upstate South Carolina. Plus, a photo gallery of nature and wildlife in the woods.
Mediterranean baked salmon is an easy and healthy recipe to make. It is tender, moist, and packed with many delicious flavors. Serve it with white rice, salad, or your favorite side dish. I love serving my salmon with white rice and black beans.
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the salmon on a well-oiled baking dish. Add salt, paprika, garlic powder, cumin, and dill on the salmon. Chop the cherry tomatoes, onions, sun-dried tomatoes and black olives. Add to the baking dish with the seasoned salmon.
Add the capers and sprinkle more olive oil. Add 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Thicker cuts of salmon may require 30 minutes. Optional: Top salmon with 1 tablespoon of blue cheese and serve immediately.
It’s been super busy here! I have been working on a new recipe, Mediterranean Salmon which I will post soon. In the meantime, I had a black bear visit the cabin in the late morning. According to the South Carolina DNC, black bears are more active in the month of May here in the Carolina woods.
