Oven-Roasted Salmon Fillets

by Berkeley Wellness  |  

Salmon has so much flavor that the simplest of cooking methods are sometimes the best. The fat content of salmon (luckily it’s mostly healthful omega-3 fatty acids) makes it well suited to high-temperature roasting. Be sure the oven is well preheated.

When placed skin-side down on a baking sheet and baked in a hot oven, there’s no need to skin the fish before roasting. Once cooked, the fish comes off the pan easily, leaving the skin behind.

Serving suggestion: The richness of salmon pairs well with the fresh, tangy flavors of relishes and salsas.

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

4 salmon fillets, skin on (5 ounces each)

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

½ teaspoon salt

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place the salmon fillets, skin-side down, in a jelly-roll pan. Sprinkle the fillets with the lemon juice and salt.
