Salmon topped with Feta & Red Onion

This recipe is a perfect accompaniment to delicious homemade Greek salad.  Salmon topped with herbs, feta and red onion is a healthy, delicious dinner that is easy to put together for a quick mid-week meal.  To top it off, it looks lovely when being served.  Use even slices of salmon for the best, most even cooking.  Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 425 F.  Line cookie sheet with foil.

On foil-lined pan, place 3-4 salmon pieces skin side down.

Sprinkle the tops of each salmon slice with:
garlic powder

Drizzle the top with olive oil.

Top with:
thinly sliced red onion
crumbled feta

Drizzle tops again with a little extra olive oil.

Salmon prior to cooking.  If desired, you can use even more herbs sprinkled on top - as in the salmon shown below. 

Bake salmon pieces at 425 F for 20-25 minutes until cooked through.  I find thinner pieces cook in ~20 minutes and thicker pieces take more like 25 minutes.  Check the thickest point with a fork to make sure it flakes nicely and is cooked through. Salmon turns from a darker pink to a lighter pink when cooked.

Delicious served with a homemade Greek Salad on the side.

Salmon fresh out of the oven, with a bit thicker layer of herbs.  Both methods are delicious. Enjoy!
