Several months ago, I wanted salmon for dinner, but needed something different than our usual Blackened Herbed Salmon. I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com, and changed it just a little bit. It was so easy, and dare I say, more delicious than the salmon we've been making for 8 years now. The kids AND the husband liked it, so I've made it many times since. Don't you love having a new recipe in the dinner rotation?
Lemon Parsley Wild Salmon
4 wild salmon fillets (about 6 oz. servings)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tsp. dried basil
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground black pepper
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
Place salmon in a gallon sized plastic bag with garlic, olive oil, basil, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and parsley. Marinate in fridge for at least 15-30 minutes.
Place salmon fillets in a 9 x 13 glass baking dish with marinade poured over it. Cover the entire dish with aluminum foil. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until the salmon flakes apart.
