Oven-baked Salmon with Herbs

Posted in Fish at 9:37 am by Sheila OConnell

Salmon prepared this way is easy, healthy and delicious!

Ingredients:
1 salmon filet, about 1 lb.
2 – 4 tbsp fresh herbs, chopped (thyme is great, haven’t tried dill but it should be good)
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp olive oil

Steps:
Heat oven to 325.
Chop the herb and mix it with salt and pepper.
Smear the olive oil on an oven-proof dish (I use a pyrex pizza dish) and put the fish on top, skin side down.
Smear a little oil from the dish onto the top of the salmon.
Pat herb mixture onto the top of the fish.
Bake for about 20 – 30 minutes, until the fish flakes.

Optional tartar sauce:
Mix some mayonnaise, lemon zest and juice, capers and a small amount of hot sauce.
