15 minutes, and some salt, pepper, and lemon are all that's needed for perfectly cooked simple salmon fillets.
- 4 salmon fillets (Atlantic, 5 oz each)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (softened)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- black pepper
- 1 lemon (large)
- Preheat the oven to 400° F.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Rinse the salmon filets under cool water. Gently pat them dry with paper towels, then place on the baking sheet, skin side down.

quick and easy. just remove the lemon after baking because it can leave a harsh taste on the salmon

I just finished trying out this awesome recipe and I turn on my phone find this question, “How did it turn out?” But I can’t even describe this awesome piece of heaven, so I’ll leave it at that.
