Salmon Provencal

This is what fresh fish should taste like. Simple but beautifully soft and succulent.
I got the recipe from Simply Recipes but again I made a few modifications.

  • 2 Fresh Salmon Fillets
  • Olive oil for baking Salmon
  • 2 T Olive Oil
  • 1 T Balsamic Vinegar
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
  • 1/2 t Dried Thyme
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 Springs Green Onion, chopped
  • 1 Medium Tomato, diced
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  2. Place the salmon on a greased baking dish, drizzling olive oil on the fish. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the 2 Tablespoons of oil with the balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, and thyme. Squeeze a few drops of lemon juice onto the salmon.
  4. Place the salmon in the oven for 10-12minutes, until pink and just barely cooked through. There may be some cooked fat collecting around the salmon.
  5. Serve the fish immediately topped with the green onions, tomatoes, and garlic and then the oil, balsamic mixture drizzled on top. Garnish with a lemon slice. 
  6. Goes well over a bed of pasta, rice, or spinach.
