I love food. I don’t think you heard me. I really enjoy a good meal. Beginning with the aroma. Wafting through the air. Fish hooking me by the nostrils and leading me to the source of earthly delight. To the gastronomic bliss of a belly sated (but not full). Ummm! Did I mention that I really get off on good vittles. Ok, ok.

My guess, is that a few of you out there, like to eat just as much as I do.  So I’m going to share a recipe for one of my favorite dishes. It’s delicious, nutritious and simple to prepare. Baked Salmon is a dish I can’t get enough of. I could eat this several times a week and never get bored. Even the color turns me on. I mean come on, how many fish have a color named after them. Before Justin, it was salmon that brought sexy back. 🙂

Enough of my food porn. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty and cook up some Baked Salmon.

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 (6 ounce) fillets salmon (preferably wild)
  1. In a medium bowl, mix the garlic, light olive oil, basil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and parsley. Place salmon fillets in a medium glass baking dish, and cover with the marinade. Place in the refrigerator about 60 minutes. Turn occasionally.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. Place fillets in aluminum foil, cover with marinade, and seal. Place sealed salmon in the glass dish, and bake 35 to 45 minutes, until easily flaked with a fork.

Serves 2. Calories: 613, Total Fat: 51.9g

Serve with your choice of salad or steamed vegetable and you’ve got a meal I guarantee you will return to again and again and ……………  You get the point.



PS. Tai Chi Kung beginning May 8 at Branch Brook Park.

    Loved that video Rob. Not sure if I could hang with the January Fish Fry, but be sure I’ll be putting it into effect come May. Until then, I’ll be working on my salmon tossing skills. Looks like it’s all in the wrist. 🙂

    I’m another salmon lover and this sounds absolutely luscious!

    The combination of garlic, basil, and lemon is making my mouth water right now. 🙂

    Keep cookin’ em up!
