Perfect Salmon EVERY time, here’s how: drizzle salmon filet with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, put it in a cold oven, then turn on the heat to 400 degrees. Twenty-five minutes later, the salmon is absolutely perfect. Tender, moist, flaky. A no-fail method!
Foil-Baked Salmon Recipe with Basil Pesto and Tomatoes
Foil-Baked Pesto Salmon 2 salmon filets, about 6 oz. each 2 tsp. olive oil (to grease foil) about 4 tsp. basil pesto (can use pesto from a jar here with good results, although obviously homemade pesto is even better) 4-5 medium tomatoes, sliced about 1/4 inch thick Instructions: Preheat oven to 450 F. (I used my toaster oven.) Place a baking sheet in oven to heat while you prep the salmon.
Commonly known as croquettes, salmon is combined with fresh parsley and seasonings, crushed saltine crackers and egg, shaped into patties and pan fried for an old southern favorite. Traditionally served with mashed potatoes and creamed peas.
