There are many ways to cook salmon, but here is a simple recipe for oven-baked salmon:
- 1 pound salmon fillet
- Salt and pepper
- Lemon slices
- Olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C).
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
- Rinse the salmon fillet under cold water and pat it dry with paper towels.
- Season the salmon with salt and pepper on both sides.
- Place the salmon fillet on the prepared baking sheet, skin-side down.
- Drizzle a little olive oil over the top of the salmon.
- Add lemon slices on top of the salmon fillet.
- Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until it is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
- Remove the salmon from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
You can also try grilling, pan-searing, or poaching salmon for different flavors and textures. Enjoy!
