Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets about 6 ounces each
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon cracked black pepper just a pinch if using finely ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning blend OR herbs de provence, or ¼ teaspoon each dried thyme, parsley, oregano, and basil
  • 1 medium lemon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a large baking pan. Arrange salmon fillets on the baking sheet and season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Stir together olive oil, garlic, herbs, and juice of 1/2 lemon. Spoon over salmon fillets being sure to rub all over the tops and sides of the salmon so it has no dry spots. Thinly slice remaining 1/2 of lemon and top each piece of salmon with a slice of lemon.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes until salmon is opaque and flaky when pulled apart with a fork. You can broil the last 1-2 minutes if desired.
  • Garnish with fresh thyme or parsley if desired and serve.

Notes

Flavor tip: swap out the lemon for lime and add a sprinkle of cilantro at the end!
