This salmon in the oven recipe is extremely simple but very tasty. All you will need are salt, pepper, butter, dill and lemon. Very easy.
It is important that you do not overcook your fish and dry it up. You will have to start checking it around the 15 minute mark and then every few minutes after that. This piece took 17 minutes. Obviously, the time will depend on your oven and the thickness of your fish.
This is a great way to enjoy salmon. It is quick, easy and healthy. I like to serve it with roasted asparagus or a spinach salad. Delish.
Here is what you are going to need in order to make this perfect salmon in the oven:
375 grams of ¾ pound of salmon fillet with skin
½ a tsp. of salt
½ a tsp. of pepper
2 dabs unsalted butter
Fresh dill weed
Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175C) and rinse and pat dry the fish.
Place the fish in an oven proof dish, skin down, and season with salt and pepper. Place the dabs of butter on both extremes of your fish and top with the dill.
Place the pan in the oven and bake for about 17 minutes or until the fish is cooked through. Do not overcook it. Check it after 15 minutes and keep a close eye on it after that.
Remove from oven and place in a plate. Remove the dill and squeeze lemon on the fillet. Cut into three parts and serve.
