Super easy and tasty, too…
1 1/2 lbs. salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces, skin removed
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
24 sprigs fresh thyme
Heat the broiler. Adjust oven rack to the second position from the top.
Rub the salmon with oil (1/2 tsp. per piece) and season with salt and pepper (1/8 tsp. salt & 3 turns on pepper mill per piece). Slice 2 of the lemons into 12 slices total.
On a sheet pan, arrange the lemon slices into 4 rows of 3. Top each row with 6 sprigs of thyme then with the salmon pieces. Broil until the salmon flakes easily, 8 to 10 minutes (depending on thickness).
Serve with the extra lemon, quartered, for squeezing.
We had this with French green beans with butter and lemon juice and a baguette.
Did I change anything? I think the cooking time on this is really going to vary depending on how thick your fish is, so just watch it to make sure it doesn’t get cooked for too long.
What did the family think? Hubby and I really liked this…so simple and perfect. The kids had fish sticks. Fish is something they really struggle with, but we are getting to the point where we need to just make them eat it. Fish is the only time I ever make them something besides what the hubby and I are eating.
