Oven Baked Herb Roasted Salmon Recipe


I can’t say enough about salmon. Quite simply, it makes for one of the tastiest, healthiest, and most delicious meals you can have.

And whenever you see one of the newest diet crazes out there, they all seem to have one thing in common – eat salmon!

Salmon doesn’t have to be a big deal at all to make. In fact, with just a few easy steps and ingredients, you can be on your way to making one of the best salmon dishes you’ll ever have.

This herb roasted salmon recipe only uses 2 herbs, salt and pepper, a little olive oil and of course some fresh lemon wedges and it roasts right in the oven.

No need to soak the fish in butter or mess up a bunch of dishes.

Just line a baking dish with aluminium foil, and clean up is a breeze!

I love using fresh salmon fillets, skin on, from my local fresh grocer. But frozen salmon fillets will work just as well as long as they’re defrosted.

So spend 5 minutes preparing this wonderful salmon recipe and enjoy a healthy, delicious meal tonight!
