Diva’s Delicious Baked Salmon

Diva’s Delicious Baked Salmon

Serves 4 to 6

4-6 fresh Salmon fillets
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons liquid smoke
5 tablespoons light brown sugar
¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper or to taste
¼ teaspoon salt (Fleur De Sel- sea salt preferred) or to taste

Preheat oven to 375°F

Evenly coat each fillet with approximately ½ teaspoon of brown sugar. Pour approximately ½ teaspoon of liquid smoke on each fillet; rub it into the brown sugar until a paste-like consistency is created.

Sprinkle the fillets with salt and pepper (as desired) and place them in a baking dish, skin side down. Lastly, drizzle lightly with olive oil just before cooking.

Baking time is 20 to 25 minutes or until the fish is somewhat pink in the middle. Salmon tends to dry-out or get firm in the center quickly. Therefore, keeping an eye on it is crucial (the thickness of the fillets must be taken into account when calculating baking time).

Diva Tip:

• This Salmon fillet recipe may be prepared ahead of time and placed in the refrigerator until ready to bake. Make sure to drizzle the olive oil just before they go into the oven. Enjoy!
