This is a fool-proof way to cook salmon so that it’s moist and tender every time. You can choose from a myriad of toppings. Make up your own.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees, bake. Yes, that’s correct. 200 degrees. Drizzle olive oil over the bottom of a shallow oven dish. Place a 1 – 2 lb. salmon filet over the olive oil, skin down. I keep the skin on, it peels off easily after it’s done. But you can have the skin removed, so skin-side down. Top with more drizzled olive oil and either:
1) crumbled croutons, butter, lemon slices, capers.
2) dill weed, lemon slices, garlic powder, pepper.
3) soy sauce, sesame oil.
Cook for 45 minutes at 200. It will be moist and flakey. I usually pop it under the broiler until just brown, but you don’t have to. Always perfect.
