I’ve been hibernating
I am as hungry as a bear so I keep on experimenting with new recipes. This week I enjoyed a salmon filet.
Simple sweet salmon
I’d never cooked a salmon filet before. I looked up possibilities on the internet and sorted though several recipes to come up with an idea to make this simple dish with ingredients I had on hand.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
1 Salmon filet
½ half lemon
1 Tablespoon brown sugar, packed
1 Tablespoon butter, melted
Fresh ground pepper to taste
Cut one thin slice off the half lemon and set it aside. Squeeze the juice from the remaining lemon into the bottom of a baking dish. Add a Tablespoon of brown sugar to the lemon juice. Stir to mix.
Put the filet in the baking dish on top of the sugar mix. Drizzle with melted butter. Grind a little fresh pepper over the filet.
Bake uncovered for 12 minutes.
Turn the filet over and put the lemon slice on top of it. Bake 7 minutes longer (or until filet flakes with a fork).
