Wild Salmon with Lemon, Garlic, & Thyme

Wild Salmon with Lemon, Garlic, & Thyme

Ingredients

2 pounds wild Alaskan salmon fillets

¼ teaspoon sea salt or Herbamare

2 teaspoons dried thyme

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

3 to 5 garlic cloves, crushed

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 lemon, cut into slices

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Rinse the salmon under cool running water and pat dry. Place the fillets, skin side down, in a glass baking dish. Sprinkle with sea salt, dried thyme, and pepper. Rub in the crushed garlic then drizzle with the olive oil. Place the lemon slices on top of the salmon.

Bake for 10 minutes per inch of thickness. To avoid overcooking, it is best to take the salmon out just before it is cooked through because it will continue to cook after you take it out of the oven.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings
