Perfect Salmon

The key to perfect fish is not over-cooking it. For a medium-sized fillet of salmon (about an inch think), preheat your oven to 425 degrees and bake for ten to twelve minutes. Take it out and let it rest for about three more minutes. You can't go wrong.

For a some added flare, try this simple asian sauce:
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon of sweet and sour sauce
1 teaspoon of hoisin sauce
1/2 teaspoon of molasses (optional)

Brush the mixture over the fish just before baking.

  1. I recently changed this recipe slightly and have seen even better results! Cook salmon in the oven at 450 degrees for 9 minutes. Still be sure to let it rest. Delish!
