"This lovely oven baked salmon cooked in olive oil, parsley and lemon juice is a favourite of our house-hold. It's easy and quick for a week night meal or a weekend treat. Bake at 350% F (U.S.) Or gas marked 4, 180 C (Europe) for 45 minutes."

Made this following the recipe, then slapped it on my grill and cooked it for about 10 minutes without flipping the fish. It was delicious and so moist, pink in the middle and we ate every last bit between the two of us!

I baked 2 - 5 ounce fillets, cut back on the oil and didn't use any butter. The salmon was moist and delicious. They were East coast wild salmon Thanks Tink for a lovely dinner
