I love having salmon for dinner, it is a great way of getting some 'good' fats into my diet, and is also an excellent source of protein. The only thing is, that because salmon is a bit fattier, oil tends to go everywhere when frying on the stove top, which is annoying to clean up. This recipe for oven-baked salmon is perfect because it makes minimal mess, and is super easy as well. I have been making this with coconut oil lately, it gives the fish a really nice flavour.
I eat this with steamed vegetables but I'm thinking a quinoa salad would be nice...I might have to work on that!
Easy Oven-Baked Salmon
Salmon steak, skinned and boned (around 100g-150g)
1 tspn oil of your choice
1. Preheat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius. Tear off a sheet of baking paper about 30 cm long and place salmon, skinned side up on the paper (this is the side that is grey-ish in colour).
2. Pour oil over the top, and use a spoon to make sure it covers most of the fish. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Bring the bottom and top edges of the baking paper together, and fold over 3 times. Then do the same with the sides, so it forms a parcel. Place on a baking tray and put in preheated oven.
4. Bake for 12 minutes, and then take out of the oven. Remove salmon steak from parcel and turn over onto a plate. Season with some more salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice if you wish, and serve with steamed vegetables.
