My pre-schooler little G has been doing very well at school and after school programs, and I can’t be prouder and happier. I want to think that it’s all the salmon that I have been feeding him. Well, we all know that salmon is loaded with omega-3 and an excellent source for a child’s cognitive development.
I am just happy that little G loves salmon. In fact, he would ask for salmon as his dinner whenever he has a craving for fish. A few days ago, he asked me to serve salmon with his favorite garlic noodles, and here it is the garlic herb roasted salmon I made for him.
This recipe is literally what it says: garlic, herb (I used Italian parsley), and salmon roasted in an oven. It’s a great Fall/Winter recipe and definitely one of the easiest salmon recipes I have attempted. So easy, completely fuss-free, and I didn’t even have to marinate.
When you have pretty fresh salmon, you don’t need a lot of seasonings or ingredients. Let the natural flavors of salmon shines. A little butter, herb, salt, black pepper, and lemon juice are all you need. Dinner is done in about 20 minutes, and hurray to more brain power for the little ones!
12 oz salmon fillet, cut into two pieces
2 tablespoon melted butter
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
1/8 teaspoon salt
Pinch of cayenne pepper, optional
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3 dashes ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400F.
Combine the melted butter, garlic, parsley, salt, cayenne pepper (if using), lemon juice and black pepper together. Stir to combine well.
Arrange the salmon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Spoon the garlic herb mixture onto the salmon, coat well on the top and sides of the salmon.
Bake for 12 minutes. Dish out and serve immediately with lemon wedges.
