Lemon, lime, garlic, and fresh herbs give meaty salmon a boost of flavor in this 20-minute seafood dinner.
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
2 teaspoons grated lime rind
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (2 1/4-pound) salmon fillet
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°.
Combine first 7 ingredients in a small bowl. Place salmon on the rack of a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; place rack in pan. Rub parsley mixture over salmon. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
This is good and I will make it again. However, next time I will use fresh garlic instead of the jar kind and let the salmon sit in the fridge with the rub on it for an hour before cooking. All the flavor was on top. Which isn't bad, you just have to chew to get the full effect.
This was an OK way to cook salmon, but I think we will stick with the Maple-Glazed Salmon from May, 2003. That has much better flavor. Followed the recipe exactly. Served with Yukon gold potatoes and sauteed summer squash.
