Roasted Salmon with Lemon
This is a go-to recipe in the middle of the week when prep time is limited!
Time to cook 15 minutes, makes 4 servings
1 1/2 pounds salmon (wild-caught if possible)
1 lemon, sliced
1 tsp. olive oil
kosher salt and pepper to taste
4 lemon wedges (for serving)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place salmon on a sheet tray. Brush with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with lemon slices.
Roast until salmon is a bit brown on the edges but still a bit soft in the middle, about 15 minutes. You can use a thermometer and take it out of the oven when internal temperature is 140 degrees. Let rest 5 minutes.
Serve with lemon wedges if desired.
