baked salmon

Juicy, flavorful and of course very healthy, this baked salmon is a favorite summer recipe around here. Salmon is a fatty fish, so this is not a low-cal dish, but this fat is actually very good for you, as long as you get wild (Pacific, king/chinook or sockeye) rather than farmed (Atlantic) salmon.

Makes 4 servings

Total time: 22 minutes
Prep: 15 minutes

Olive oil cooking spray
4 (6oz) wild salmon fillets, skin on or skinless, 1-inch thick

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place rack in the middle of the oven. Line a large baking dish with foil and lightly spray it with olive oil cooking spray.
