Baked Salmon

SalmonIt's among the easiest of my recipes, but I never think to post it. Since this blog's in danger of becoming a "dessert blog" I thought I should post something healthy too :)

I can remember years ago not liking salmon at all but one day I decided to try it again and I guess tastes do change because I like this a lot these days.

Among the fillet-type fish I used to favor mild white fish, but given a choice (unless one is stuffed, I love stuffed foods) between baked (no-filling) cod (or similar) and baked salmon, I think I'd choose the salmon. It's meaty, but soft and mild. Unlike tilapia, which to me is the 'meatiest' fish I've ever had and I don't like it very much for some reason. Maybe that will change too, someday. For now, bring on the salmon!

Simple Salmon

1 salmon fillet (one side has skin, a lengthwise cut; same method for a steak)
dill (fresh or dried), to taste
lemon and pepper, to taste
non-fat cooking spray (or a little olive oil, or non-stick aluminum foil)

Line your cooking vessel of choice with foil (regular or non-stick).

Spray on some non-stick spray. Lay your fillet skin-side-down (if it's a steak, either side down is fine).

Sprinkle with dill, and drizzle with a little lemon.

SalmonBake at 350ºF, uncovered, until firm and pink throughout. Depending on the size of your fish steak/fillet, about 30-45 min.

Add more lemon to taste. And pepper if you like. Pairs well with rice and veggies or flaked over pasta.

This recipe sounds delicious. I have just recently started cooking and finding good recipes can be pretty hard. This recipe not only sounds tasty, but also very easy. I will be sure to give this one a shot.
