Salmon is always on our dining table because my son loves it.  

When I had the first bite, I could see it in my mind eyes that my mom would fall head over heels for this dish instantly.  She likes healthy eating and still keeps herself in great shape with youthful appearance even in her 70s.

The nice thing about this salmon recipe is that the seasonings are in your pantry already.  So, if you are a big fan of healthy eating, I know that you will love this easy dinner.


I have never been a big fan to squeeze lemon juice in my seafood dish.  But for this seafood recipe, the lemon juice does make the flavor pop.  So, I highly recommend to cook it with lemon and some fresh squeezed lemon juice for serving.

If there is any leftover, use the meat to make salmon avocado salad.

1 (about 2.5 lbs) Salmon Filet
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Lemon (one cut into slices and the other one cut into wedges)
Dry Parsley (for garnish only)

1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1 tbsp Garlic Powder

  6. Add olive oil on top of salmon; then add slices of lemon on top and cover the tray with a piece of foil to seal it.
