There are millions of salmon recipes out there. I could not find what I wanted. I didn't want a plank, to smoke nor anything with aluminum foil... yuck. I want to taste the salmon and not spend all day getting things ready. A little lemon and a little butter and I'm good with lots of things especially fish.
Notes: We have started the Dash Diet at our house. High in veggies, fruits and all around good for you. Fish needs to be a regular part of this so I'm expanding my choices from tilapia and fried perch. More on this "diet that the doctor follows" on my Healthier Diet Page. I'm a pediatrician, not an internist so the usual warning "check with your primary care provider before any major change in your diet" applies.
- 1 pound salmon fillet
- 2 T Butter
- 1 T lemon juice
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/4 t pepper
1) Start with about a 1 pound salmon fillet. Preheat oven to 425 convection.2) Prep a baking sheet with aluminum foil and a rack. Give it a good spray of PAM. If you don't have a rack, just use the foil and spray that.3) In a small microwave safe bowl, combine 2 T butter, 1 T lemon juice, 1/2 t kosher salt and 1/4 t pepper.4) Microwave the butter mixture until melted (about 20 seconds). Then brush both sides of the salmon. Place on baking rack. 5) Bake until flaky with a internal temp of 145. About 14-15 minutes in my oven with this piece of salmon. Yours may vary some.
