Easy Oven-Baked Dill & Lemon Salmon

For a delicious show-stopper with minimal effort, I present give you one of my favorites - an easy to prepare and bake salmon.  Fresh dill and lemon flavor and moisten the salmon as it bakes.  The best is that you can increase or decrease the size of your salmon slab depending on how many you aim to feed.  I usually account for about a 2" slab per person.

Delicious dill and lemon salmon, fresh from the oven! 

Easy Oven-Baked Dill & Lemon Salmon

Preheat oven to 425 F.

The piece of salmon pictured was about 10-12" long.

Place your salmon on a foil-lined tray.  Make diagonal slices along with the grain about every 2" of your salmon.

Stuff slices with:
fresh dill
lemon, thinly sliced (and those slices cut in half - so you have semi-circles to put into the salmon)

Drizzle the salmon with:
olive oil

Sprinkle the top of the salmon with:
salt
pepper
paprika
dried parsley

Bake the salmon at 425 F for ~20 minutes.  Check the center of the salmon with a fork to make sure it's cooked thoroughly. It may need an additional 2-4 minutes, depending on the size and thickness of your salmon.

Absolutely delicious served with homemade latkes.  Great with other delicious potato sides, too, like pan-fried potatoes.  Enjoy!
