I baked up this big old fillet the other night and Taylor suggested I put it on the blog.
I said "really?" She explained that many of her friends ( Yeah that's right, she disses you guys all the time.) did not know how to fix Salmon.
This is a really simple way of baking it up.
Salt and Pepper
I spread enough foil onto a cookie sheet to wrap up the whole fillet.
Put the fillet on the foil, squeeze the juice of 2 lemons all over the fillet, then salt and pepper to taste.
Bake at 350 degrees
The baking time is the trickiest part of this recipe.
I bake a big fillet like that one pictured about an hour. I check it after about 40 to 45 minutes because you don't want it to dry out.
When you check it prick it with a fork right in the middle, if the meat flakes off onto the fork it is done baking. If it doesn't seem baked enough for your liking leave it in for a few more minutes.
When the fish is done baking I love to squeeze more lemon juice on it and a little more salt and pepper.(No I don't squeeze a little more salt and pepper on it, smarty pants! I shake a little more salt and pepper on it.) I love the fresh taste of Salmon, in fact I wish I had some right now.
Tonight I was too tired and Taylor is having contractions (not good) so Papa being the big
spender he is went to Taco Bell.
He told us we could have anything on the menu that cost 79 cents. Ummmm let's see bean burrito's were 79 cents in 1990.
We convinced him to let us have something that at least cost 99 cents. He went into spasms but allowed it.
I had 1/2 of a bean burrito.
It wasn't that great.
I do however, have a tummy load of gas that I am going to share with Papa later tonight during our special time.
