Perhaps because I have a thing for baking, my favorite way to cook salmon is by baking it. It’s super easy to make, there’s no clean-up, aka, no cleaning smelly fishy pans, and it’s utterly delicious.
You wrap the filet of salmon in parchment with a bunch of fresh herbs, a squeeze of lemon, and a sprinkling of salt and pepper, and maybe even a lemon slice or two if you’re feeling fancy, and place it on a baking sheet. 10-15 minutes later, poof, you have the above picture. A perfectly cooked salmon, flakey, and flavorful, and moist as can be.
I’ve included am optional quick white herb sauce if you’re looking for a little indulgence.
