Lemon Salmon with Garlic and Thyme
Servings: 4 servings
Four 5- to 6-ounce salmon fillets
Extra virgin olive oil, as needed
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 whole lemon, zested and sliced into thin rounds
½ teaspoon dried thyme
4 to 5 five garlic cloves, peeled and lightly crushed
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. Place the salmon fillets in a baking dish, and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle evenly with the lemon zest and thyme. Arrange the lemon slices on top of the fillets, and add the garlic cloves to the dish.
3. Transfer to the oven and bake until the salmon is cooked through and flakes with a fork, 18-20 minutes (adjust the baking time if your fillets are very thick or thin).
