“Super Easy! This cooking technique is something of a miracle. The fish bakes at a low heat right on the platter you will serve it on. No pans to wash! You will know it is done when the fish flakes, but it doesn't change color as much because it keeps its moisture -- no more dried-out fish! And it is so flavorful!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oven to 200°F (that's right -- 200 degrees).
  2. Chop up the garlic or other herbs and mix it with the salt and pepper.
  3. Smear the oil on an oven-proof serving platter, and place fish on top. If the filet is skinned, put some salt and pepper on both sides, otherwise just put the fish skin side down and season the top. Pour the lemon juice on fish after salt & pepper and garlic have been applied.
  4. Bake for about 40 to 45 minutes, until salmon flakes. You won't believe how good it is. I usually serve it with a sort of homemade tartar sauce mixing mayonnaise, lemon zest and juice, some of the same herb I used on the fish, capers, and a very small amount of hot sauce. I do it to taste.
  5. Nutritional Information: Figuring three servings per pound, each has zero carbs, 30 grams of protein, and 230 calories.
