Ingredients:

  1. Salmon Fillets: 4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)

  2. Olive Oil: 2 tablespoons

  3. Garlic: 3 cloves, minced

  4. Lemon: 1, thinly sliced

  5. Fresh Dill: 2 tablespoons, chopped

  6. Paprika: 1 teaspoon

  7. Salt and Pepper: To taste

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven:

    • Begin by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C). This ensures that your salmon cooks evenly and develops a beautiful crust while remaining tender inside.


  1. Prepare the Salmon:

    • Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels. This step helps achieve a crispy exterior. If there are any pin bones, use tweezers to remove them.


  1. Season the Salmon:

    • Place the salmon fillets on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

    • Drizzle olive oil over the fillets, ensuring they are well-coated.

    • Sprinkle minced garlic, chopped fresh dill, paprika, salt, and pepper evenly over the fillets. The combination of these ingredients adds depth and complexity to the flavor profile.


  1. Lemon Slices:

    • Arrange thin lemon slices on top of each fillet. The citrusy aroma infuses the salmon with a refreshing taste.


  1. Bake to Perfection:

    • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fillets. The salmon is ready when it flakes easily with a fork. Be cautious not to overcook, as it can result in dry salmon.


  1. Serve and Enjoy:

    • Once the salmon is cooked to perfection, remove it from the oven.

    • Garnish with additional fresh dill and serve with your favorite sides, such as steamed vegetables, quinoa, or a light salad.


  1. Optional Finishing Touch:

    • For an extra burst of freshness, squeeze a bit of lemon juice over the baked salmon just before serving.
