This has to be one of the easiest and best tasting recipes I have. I developed it so I could always pull together a healthy dinner in a few minutes and then have beautiful cold salmon leftovers for the next day.
All you need is a nice piece of fresh salmon and a few basic spices. The real key is to get the oven very hot, so it sears the outside of the salmon and locks in the juices.
2 lb filet of Fresh Salmon, skin on is best, but not essential.
Roasted Garlic Powder
Freshly ground Black Pepper
1 Tbsp Butter
Preheat your oven to 550F. Take your parchment paper and put it onto a 1/2 sheet baking pan and lay your salmon onto the paper.
Melt your butter and brush it onto the salmon filet. Sprinkle on your spices to taste and bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the salmon. Remove and allow it to rest for 3 minutes before serving. It goes well with the seafood rice pilaf I featured in an earlier post.
Note: All of these spices can be purchased in most grocery stores, but I feel that the prices and quality of The Spice House in Chicago can’t be beat.
