Baked Salmon Recipe
A few days ago, Vanessa tried an online grocery delivery service called Go Fresh. The vacuum-packed perishables of ham, beef, salmon, and chicken breasts were delivered in a styrofoam box packed with some dry ice.
Last night, Van broiled chicken breasts for dinner and so this morning, I reciprocated with a baked salmon for her to bring to work.
The 200g fillet was not slimy and it was firm to the touch indicating freshness. I was impressed that they had properly scaled the skin and there was no traces of pin bones also. That had saved me a lot of work and within half an hour from start to finish, my little girl has her brunch packed and ready to go.
Baked Salmon Recipe (serves 1)
Ingredients and Method:
200g Salmon, rinsed and pat dry with kitchen towels.
Sea Salt (I had the Flakes), sprinkle onto salmon according to taste.
Black Pepper, freshly milled and to taste.
Butter or Olive Oil (I used butter).
Lemon, sliced thinly for laying on top the salmon or use some fine julienne peel and a couple wedges to squeeze when eating.
Dill or any fresh herbs you like, optional.
Preheat oven at 200*C.
Line a sheet of baking paper onto the oven tray, put fish on it, sprinkling all the seasoning and herbs if using, and bake/broil/grill for 15-20 minutes, depending on how well done you like your fish to be.
I had just finished wrapping up the fillet when Vanessa’s ride arrived – no time to take photo of finished product. I didn’t even get to taste the end result but Vanessa was confident in my cooking. I reiterated, “Could be salty… I think I used too much salt” as I send her to the door and the sweet child responded, “Should be fine. Thanks momma. I love you!”
P.S. I worry that it would be too salty because I had sprinkle more than usual to take photos for this post.
Happy cooking, eating and bonding 🙂
The 200g salmon cost SGD10.80
