Ready in 35 minutes; part of Mother's Day collection

An easy dinner staple, this recipe pairs well with potatoes, pasta, or bread.

"I'm a vegetarian and so didn't eat this myself but my husband said it was very good. He said the only thing he would change is maybe using a little less spice. It was very easy to prepare and I'll definitely
make it "


6 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon parsley; fresh or freeze-dried
1 teaspoon basil; fresh or freeze-dried
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound salmon steaks; cut into portions

Original recipe makes 3



Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Mix all spices into olive oil and stir vigorously to mix.

Pour half the mixture into a bread-loaf sized baking dish

Put in salmon, probably stacked on itself a bit, and press it in so it soaks

Pour the rest of the mixture over the salmon

Immerse the salmon in the mixture as much as possible.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily.

I make it as is. I break it up and put it in a salad with balsamic vinaigrette.

My husband swore he hated Salmon but the Dr told him to get some and he loved this recipe. Now he asks for it weekly!
