Baked Salmon with Fresh Herbs
This simple, healthy Baked Salmon dish is made with fresh lemon, and lots of fresh herbs such as dill, parsley, chives.
Salmon is one of my favorite fish, and nothing is quicker and easier than roasting a side of salmon in the oven. I slice some lemons and add a few sprigs of herbs such as parsley or chives, then lay the salmon on top, skin side down.
This is easy enough for weeknight cooking, but also elegant enough to add to your holiday table. The whole dish takes under 25 minutes, and leftovers are great over salad such as this Arugula Salmon Salad with Capers and Shaved Parmesan, a favorite!
