• Ingredients:

    ¾ pound salmon fillet (about 1 inch thick)

    ½ teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon maple syrup

    1 lime

    Sprinkle of salt and pepper


    Check the salmon for pinbones and set your oven to 450ºF.

    Get out a baking sheet or pie pan or something to hold your salmon

    Sprinkle half the salt over the bottom of the pan and set the salmon in, skin down.

    Drizzle the meat with the maple syrup. Zest about 1 teaspoon lime zest over that. Sprinkle with remaining salt.

    Bake for 10-15 minutes (depending on thickness; rule of thumb is 10 minutes per inch) or until salmon is opaque.

    Remove and squeeze lime juice over salmon before serving.
