Step 1: Hunting and Gathering
- 4 fresh cut salmon fillets (you can use frozen, but fresh is better. Frozen fillets would need to thaw overnight in the fridge first.)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp seasoned salt
- 1/2 tsp dill
- 1 tsp parsley
- 2 tsp olive oil
You can add in onion powder if you'd like, as well.
Step 2: Getting to Work
Grease a baking dish or pan. You can also line it with foil, if you want to skip on the clean up portion. Lay the fish filets into the pan, skin side down. Don't worry about the skin. After cooking, the meat will separate from the skin cleanly and with no effort on your part.
In a small mixing bowl, stir together your seasonings. Brush the 2 tsp of olive oil onto the tops of filets. Using a spoon, sprinkle the seasonings onto the tops of the filets, then place the baking dish into the oven. Cook for 10-12 minutes.
Be careful not to go over the baking time, and set a timer. If you cook salmon for too long, it dries out and becomes chewy. Cook it for the recommended time, and it will come out flaky, moist, and perfect.
Step 3: Time to Eat
Make sure to time your sides to finish at the same time as the fish. There really isn't any beating freshly cooked, hot food.
