When I was out of Seattle last, my sister picked up some fresh-caught salmon! It was a beautiful cut, so we just wanted to add a little bit of flavor. This salmon is very simple because you just have to make a delicious sauce, and put it in the oven!
- 1-2 pound salmon
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 tsp salt
- ¼ tsp Italian seasoning
- ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp chopped dill or parsley (optional)
Preheat the oven to 375ºF (with oven rack in the middle)
In a medium saucepan, combine lemon juice and garlic, and allow the lemon juice to reduce to 1 tablespoon. Add 2 tablespoon butter, (while reducing heat) and stir until the butter is melted completely. Remove from stove. Add into the butter mixture: salt, pepper, dill, and red pepper flakes.
Place the salmon filet in a piece of foil large (with enough extra to fold over.) Brush butter sauce over the salmon.
Wrap foil around the salmon (trapping in all the yummy garlic butter sauce.)
Bake the salmon for 12-14 minutes or until just firm. (Depending on how you prefer your salmon cooked.) Open the foil and allow the fish to broil under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, keeping an eye on it so the fish does not burn.
Remove from oven, top with parsley. Serve immediately.
