Some salt, pepper, and lemon are all you need for perfectly cooked salmon fillets in 15 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets (Atlantic, 5 oz each)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 lemon (large)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Rinse the salmon filets under cool water. Gently pat them dry with paper towels, then place on the baking sheet, skin side down.
  4. Using a butter knife or the back of a spoon, gently spread an equal amount of the softened butter over the top of each salmon filet.
  5. Sprinkle the top of the salmon with the salt and black pepper, to taste.
  6. Slice the lemon into 12 rounds, a scant ¼” thick.
  7. Lay three lemon slices directly on top of each salmon filet.
  8. Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven.
  9. Bake the salmon for 12-15 minutes on the middle rack of the oven, until it flakes easily with a fork.
  10. Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  11. Plate and serve immediately.

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.
