Lemon Garlic Roasted Salmon

Last week while in Florida I was eating Seafood non stop. I would've thought a weeks worth of fish would feed my craving, but apparently not as I am making Salmon for dinner tonight! I normally grill salmon but considering it's 15 degrees outside and my grill is covered in snow, I've opted for a roasted version instead. This Salmon was so easy to prepare and packed with flavor!

Lemon Garlic Roasted Salmon
Serves 4
Cal 220, Carbs 0, Fat 13, Protein 24
1 (1- to 1 1/2-pound) skinless salmon fillets (mine were about 5 oz each)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place the salmon fillets in a glass, ceramic, or stainless-steel roasting dish and season with salt and pepper. Whisk together the olive oil, chopped garlic, and lemon juice. Drizzle the mixture evenly over the salmon.

Roast the salmon for 12 minutes or until cooked in the center at the thickest part. Allow to rest for five minutes and serve with additional fresh lemons. Enjoy!

  5. I don't think I've ever met a salmon recipe that I didn't like. Thanks for this one. It looks delish. Visiting from Foodie Friday.

  6. I will be trying your recipe, I can't eat salmon without a lot of lemon. Hope you are having a great day and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
