It is amazing how good the most simple dishes can be. The only thing you need for this is fresh salmon, farmed is fine, and a digital instant-read thermometer with a probe. The salmon is cooked to medium rare in the oven and will be so tender and succulent that you can eat it with a spoon.
You can serve the salmon with your preferred sides, fresh herbs, or sauce, but it’s good enough by itself. This is so easy that anyone can do it. Please give this a try, you will be amazed!
salt and freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil
Rub the salmon fillet liberally with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and some freshly squeezed lemon juice. Put in an oven dish and drizzle with olive oil. Insert the probe of an instant-read thermometer into the salmon such that the tip of the probe is in the thickest part of the salmon.
