Baked salmon in herbs and lemon.

19th April, 2020
This is the part where chefs and other bloggers normally big up the salmon, its' wonderful health benefits and gentle delicious taste. First of all I am NOT a FISH PERSON, but when your hubby randomly comes home from the supermarket with the teeniest bit of fish for almost £10 you can not let it go to waste. I mean a nibble of fish.. Really? I've marinated it with herbs and freshly squeezed lemon juice, served with some crackers and salad and there you go.. I've got to admit, it made a nice, light and healthy bit of lunch.
+ 2x 200-250g skinless salmon fillets +
+ 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted +
+ 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary, extra chopped +
+ 1 teaspoon fresh finely chopped parsley +
+ 1/4 teaspoon of dried oregano +
+ 1 minced garlic clove +
+ 1 lemon +
+ 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper +
+ sea salt +
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with aluminum foil. Arrange salmon. Brush the melted butter on top of each salmon filet. In a small bowl, mix the rosemary, parsley, oregano, garlic, squeezed lemon juice, and pepper together. Spoon evenly onto each filet, spreading all over the top. Sprinkle sea-salt evenly to taste. Fold foil ensuring the fish is carefully covered. Bake for 18 minutes or until the salmon is just cooked through. Don’t overcook or the salmon will taste dry. Serve with salad of your choice and some crackers.
