Deliciously simple baked salmon fillet – just 5 ingredients!
1 wild salmon fillet (1–2 pounds)
1 Tablespoon olive oil (or avocado oil, or melted ghee)
3/4 teaspoons sea salt
cracked black pepper
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Slice about half a lemon into very thin rounds. Set other half aside for serving.
Place salmon fillet skin-side-down on a silicon- or parchment-lined baking sheet.
Drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil.
Sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoons sea salt and some freshly cracked black pepper.
Arrange the lemon slices atop the salmon fillet. This adds some lemony flavor, but also keeps the top of the salmon moist and looks very pretty.
Bake salmon in 350ºF oven for approximately 12 minutes or until it easily flakes and the internal temperature reaches about 120ºF.
Slice into approximately 6 fillets and serve!
– This is a super simple recipe, but feel free to season it however you’d like.
– Add quick-cooking vegetables to the pan around the salmon for a quick sheet pan dinner: Asparagus, Grape tomatoes, Green Beans, Yellow Squash, Zucchini
