Hot & Spicy Baked Salmon

Today I want to share with you a delicious, simple, lite, and HOT salmon recipe.  This is one of the easiest recipes in my kitchen and perfect for any weeknight. I personally prefer it with a little less black pepper, but my husband loves hot food and so this has become a staple recipe for us. :) 

Start off by placing the salmon fillets on a piece of foil that's in a glass dish.  

You'll cover them in a marinade of garlic, olive oil, basil, salt, black pepper, lemon juice,& parsley. Phew! That's a list!

Don't ya just love my little whisk? :)

 Marinate the fillets in the fridge for about an hour (or all day while you're at work!), turn them at least once, several times if you're able. (Actually, let me be honest. A lot of times I just smother both sides of the salmon and then don't even bother with flipping. ;) )

All that's left is popping them in the oven & baking for about 35-45 minutes or as is customary with fish... until they flake easily with a fork.

Okay, so not exactly the quickest recipe, but certainly easy.  I hope you enjoy. :)
