I absolutely love to prepare salmon for dinner because it’s quick, easy, and really delicious. David and I had this on Monday night and I had the salmon in a salad for lunch on Tuesday. The recipe requires very few ingredients (and I think most should be in your pantry, especially if you have ever followed my other weeknight dinner recipes).
Oven Baked Salmon
1 pound salmon
First, preheat your oven to 475 degrees. While the oven is preheating, place the salmon (skin side down) on a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spread a thin layer of salt on the salmon:

Then add some freshly ground black pepper to the fish:
Cut your lemon in half and squeeze half of the juice on the salmon. Cut the other half into slices and place on the fish:
Place the salmon in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes (depending on how thick the tuna is):
Serve with a side of vegetables (we did a side salad with avocados) or stir fry some spinach with garlic to serve on the side!
