Hey, everyone. I'm Judith with Recipe.com, and today, I'm gonna be showing you how to make Oven-Roasted Salmon, a quick and easy preparation and a delicious recipe. So, this particular recipe calls for four salmon filets but we're using two this time, and I here have two boneless and skinless 5-ounce salmon filets. I also have a pinch of salt and pepper and I have half a tablespoon of olive oil. I have our shallow baking tray in here which we've lined with aluminum foil. Now, what I'm gonna do is get our salmon filets, place them on our baking dish, and we're gonna do a little bit of basting, so get our olive oil and we're just gonna smother than both sides and this is a really healthy, wonderful, nutritious recipe. Salmon is very, very good for you. A lot of omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for our cardiovascular health and makes your skin glow, if you didn't know that. All right. So, we've done the two sides and we're gonna do some salt and pepper on there, too. I like to be nice and generous with my salt here. Of course, sea salt is the best. All right, that's on, and then let's get our pepper on. Quick sprig of pepper, the side. There we go. Now, we've preheated our oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and these salmon are ready to go in there, and they should take about 8 minutes, but check on it, and when it's flaking, that's when it's ready, so that's going in there. So it's been about 8 minutes. We've taken our salmon out of the oven. Looks delicious, and it's just about done. Now, if you wanna check if it's ready, what you can do is you can see if it flakes easily with a fork, and as you can see, it does so there. Now, of course, a lot of people like to cook salmon to their liking. Some people like it a little bit pink inside, but this is a great way to test if it's just about done, and there you have it. That is a very simple and quick Oven-Roasted Salmon. Well, thanks for watching everyone. For more great recipes and savings, go to Recipe.com.
