Herb Roasted Salmon
ingredients that I would normally use. Then I discovered that I had some hollandaise that I purchased from Trader Joe's for just such a lazy occasion. So I decided that I had not had salmon with hollandaise in a while and I wanted seasonings that would compliment the hollandaise sauce. This was the result and it is delicious!
This is an original McCracken Egg recipe.
4 - 6 servings
1 1/2 - 2 pound boneless, skinless salmon fillet
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
Hollandaise for serving, optional
Preheat the oven to a low broil.
Make sure that the salmon is clean and pat dry with a paper towel.
Place on a cookie sheet lined with tin foil and lightly greased with non-stick cooking spray, vein side down.
Add the remaining ingredients, through the parsley flakes, in a small bowl and mix until combined.
Using a pastry or barbeque brush, spread the olive oil mixture evenly over the top of the salmon.
Broil on low for 8 - 12 minutes.
Turn the oven to a high broil and cook for another 5 - 8 minutes, or until cooked through.
Carefully remove from the oven and serve warm with hollandaise sauce.
