Zesty baked Salmon

I put this  together for dinner one evening  and  was delighted by how it turned out. I have been experimenting with different ways of cooking this healthy, omega 3 and  protein-packed fish. I intend on sharing all of them with you in due time! Salmon fillets are versatile and cook quickly, depending on the thickness. I mostly select the skinless fillets since I don't care for the texture of the skin much. A simple marinade will also help build flavor. Since fish is not as dense as meat or poultry, it just needs 20 to 30 minutes of marinading time in the refrigerator. I hope you make this for dinner one evening for your dear ones, or yourself.

good to know:

Keep the salmon refrigerated in its original package  until ready to cook. It can be refrigerated up to 2 days.


4 salmon fillets, 5-oz each
2 tbs lemon juice
2 tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp salt

Direction for marinading:

Combine lemon juice, olive oil and salt in a glass bowl or Ziploc bag. Place the salmon in the bowl or bag and coat evenly. Cover and let sit in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes. While the salmon is marinading, place oven rack one level above center rack and preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Ingredients for baking salmon

2 Roma tomatoes sliced to desired thickness
2 jalapeno peppers sliced to desired thickness
1 clove garlic sliced thinly
1/2 red onion chopped
cilantro and cucumber for garnish

Prepare a baking pan or baking sheet by spraying its surface  with cooking spray. Place sliced tomato in pan. Place marinaded salmon fillets on the sliced tomatoes. layer the red onion, sliced garlic, and jalapeno on each fillet. Place fillets in oven and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Plate, garnish and have a great meal!
