Baked Salmon

This is a recipe from my daughter Anna. When the folks from the Open Door Shelter where I volunteer asked to make fish next time I will come, I was not sure what I could make, which would be fast and simple. And yummy. And this recipe is the best in terms that you need to do almost nothing – the oven does the job.
When I made it in ODS for the first time, it was gone before I turned around. I made it at home when Boris was here with the same effect. I brought two giant salmons to the shelter last Friday, and this way at least there were no people who got nothing.
I had one more left at home, and I didn’t want to freeze it, so I baked it, and now I am going to give some to Mom, some to Igor and freeze the rest.
Here is the recipe:

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Place the fish skin down on the baking sheet (on the parchment paper or aluminum foil).
  • Put several drops of olive oil on top, sprinkle some salt and black pepper.
  • Cut one or two lemons and place the pieces on top of the fish, to give some lemon flavor and to prevent it from getting dry.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes. Anna says – eight minutes, but it didn’t work for me.
Enjoy!
