This was seriously one of the best salmon recipes I have made to date! What makes it even better is that literally from start to in my mouth this whole recipe took 25 minutes!!!

Lemon Basil

Easy Baked Lemon Basil Salmon
Recipe type: Entree
  • Salmon Filets
  • Fresh Basil, chopped
  • Lemon, thinly sliced
  • Olive Oil
  • Lemon Pepper
  1. Directions:
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Take salmon filets and cut 3  shallow slits in each filet.
  4. Stuff the slits in the salmon with the chopped basil.
  5. Then drizzle or spray olive oil on each filet (I used my Misto) and top with some Lemon Pepper and 2-3 Lemon slices.
  6. Place each salmon filet in the center of a piece of parchment paper and wrap the parchment paper over the filet so that it is like a burrito.
  7. Place each wrapped filet on a baking sheet.
  8. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until salmon becomes flaky!
Don't have lemon pepper? Salt & pepper would work too!

There are no exact measurements because I didn't measure and because you really can't go wrong!
