My father, Lloyd Pipes, often said to me, "Son, food must look good, smell good, and taste good to be good. We eat with all of our senses. So you must always make sure the food you serve looks good, smells good, and tastes good." I prepared this salmon to meet his criteria.
Served simply with a baked potato and a nice garden salad, this is a perfect supper.
- Fresh Atlantic Salmon
- Extra Virgin Olive oil
- Parsley for garnish
There are, it seems, endless ways to prepare fresh salmon. Here is a ways that tastes good, smells good, and looks good.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Wash and then rub the salmon with extra virgin olive oil and place the fish in a baking dish. Spread honey over the top of the fish. Squeeze lemon on the fish and then put slices of lemon on top of the fish. Bake the fish until it is cooked through, about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet. Plate the fish and garnish the plate with a fresh green such as parsley.
