I hope you all had a wonderful first week of spring! Here in Canada, the weather hasn’t fully felt like spring yet, but I hope it will soon.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ pound salmon
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ crushed red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, for garnishing

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. The piece of foil should be big enough to fold over and seal the fish.
  2. In a small bowl, add lemon juice, garlic, and melted butter. Whisk everything together.
  3. Place salmon on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Pour the butter mixture over the salmon.
  5. Season with salt, pepper, oregano, and red pepper flakes.
  6. Fold the sides of the foil over the salmon. Make sure it is well sealed so the sauce does not leak.
  7. Place into oven and bake until cooked for about 20-25 minutes*.
  8. Open the foil and broil the fish for 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to burn the fish!
  9. Remove from the oven. Using a spoon, pour some of the butter sauce left in the foil onto the salmon before serve. Then, garnish with parsley.
  10. Serve it with veggies, salad, rice or quinoa.

* Baking time may vary slightly due to the thickness of fish and your oven. Check the salmon every 5 mins after the cooking time.

** The salmon can also be wrapped in parchment paper.
