It’s Eid holidays so I’ve had some free to time cook. I didn’t make anything so elaborate, but I made salmon twice. Salmon is one of my favorite things to eat! I can eat it grilled, baked, fried, and curried. The great thing about salmon is that you can make an amazing meal by using some simple ingredients.
Since it’s just the two of us, I had 2 pieces of salmon.
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Black Pepper according to how much you like I think I used around 1/4 of a teaspoon
2 pieces of salmon whatever size you want (clean and keep aside)
Mix the juice and black pepper together in a bowl that’s large enough to add the fish.
Place the fish inside the bowl and mix it with the marinade. I usually use my hands instead of a utensil because fish is delicate. If you are squeamish about touching fish you can use gloves 🙂 Wrap the bowl with plastic wrap and let it marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour or a couple of hours if you have time.
Preheat oven to 450 F (230 C)
Place the salmon onto a foil lined baking pan. I usually spray a bit of PAM, but with salmon it is not necessary because the natural oils will come out and the salmon shouldn’t stick to the pan.
Bake salmon for about 15 minutes. You will know salmon is done when it is done when the white juices comes and it is flaky if you take a fork to it.
That’s it! It’s pretty simple to make salmon and this is a really simple and delicious meal! You can serve salmon with any type of vegetables.
I usually serve it with roast vegetables or a salad. I’ll post my recipe for roasted veggies in another post.
