Baked Sockeye Salmon

Looking out my kitchen window this past weekend I saw sunshine, shadows, perennials budding and flowers!  It's quite amazing, considering the Halloween Nor'easter that visited my area of my state late last October.  Things are looking good and we are really thankful!

Yesterday, the Irises were still beginning to blossom, but our skies were filled with clouds and raindrops were falling.  The plan of Grilled "Wild Caught" Sockeye Salmon for dinner needed to be changed.  As during the cold winter weeks Baked Sockeye Salmon was a great alternative.  Yum! It's another quick and easy entree that tastes so good!   

Baked "Wild Caught" Sockeye Salmon

Oven:  350° F     Baking Time: 20 Minutes for a 1 lb. fillet
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a baking pan with foil and spray with PAM.
  3. Place 2 Bay Leaves in middle of baking pan.
  4. Rinse fillet under cold running water.
  5. Place on Bay Leaves, skin side down.
  6. Drizzle about 1 to 1 and 1/2 teaspoons Olive Oil for baking and sauteing over fillet.
  7. Sprinkle about 1/8 teaspoon Paprika on top of fillet.
  8. Bake in 350°F oven for 20 minutes.
It's always great to have another quick plan.  Baked "Wild Caught" Sockeye Salmon tastes delicious!  While on vacation or when at home, we enjoy seafood every week!

Delicious change in plan! Same for us, grilling had to turn to baking during the past few days with all the rain.

What a lovely view! Love salmon and I also make sure we have fish/seafood at least once a week.
