If you’re looking to cook a dinner that’s slightly more posh than regular, but still want to keep it healthy, quick and easy, there’s little better than salmon filet, cooked in an oven. Fish and seafood are very good for you. The meat is lean and chock full of nutrients, the taste is divine and you can find it at very affordable prices.
This recipe only uses a few ingredients to create an amazing dish in mere minutes.
I recommend buying boneless salmon fillet on skin for this. The skin keeps the juices in and it’s also very easy to remove once the salmon is cooked. Salmon has very pleasant and intense taste that need almost no garnishing. That’s why all the prep we’ll be doing for this recipe is rubbing the fish with salt and pepper.
If you wish, after the salmon is done, you can season it with a bit of fresh greens, such as dill or parsley and sprinkle a bit of lemon juice on top.
Keep in mind that salmon cooks much faster than meat or chicken and that the doneness temperature for it is 125F, so make sure you don’t overcook it.
Salmon is perfect with almost any garnish, but since the dish itself is pretty light on calories, many people like serving it with equally light side dishes such as steamed or grilled veggies or salads. Salmon also keeps pretty well, so if you have any leftovers, you can warm them up in a microwave the next day and toss into a salad or make a sandwich.
Follow the easy instructions below to create a fantastic dinner in just a few steps.
