Baked Salmon

Let me preface this by saying that yes, salmon is very expensive. I only bought some because I like it and it was my birthday. My kids, 6 and 4, couldn't get enough of this salmon. I got the recipe from recipezaar.

2 cloves garlic
6 TBS light olive oil (I used extra virgin. It was a little oily, but still good)
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper (I used half)
1 TBS lemon juice
1 tsp chopped fresh parsley

2 (6 oz) salmon fillets

Mix the first seven ingredients. Pour over salmon in a baking dish. Cover with foil and marinate for an hour. I turned them once. Bake at 375 25-35 minutes, until the salmon flakes with a fork. I doubled the marinade recipe and used two pounds of salmon. It was delicious with a baked potato and some asparagus.

  3. Yep, leave it covered to bake.

  4. Mary! This was so delicious! We ate everything I made. The skin came right off when it was cooked. Thanks for the recipe!
