Baked Garlic Salmon

I have always loved seafood, its something I consider my "treat"...but sadly enough we can't
get the fresh stuff here in our area very often, so when we do.....I ALWAYS buy what I can and have a special feast. This Salmon was to DIE for. I baked it and ate it...BUT then I ate it on a green salad (cold) the next day...and then again the NEXT day! It was so good that I went back to the store and "stalk" up, but sadly enough, it was ALL GONE! Next time I will buy more and FREEZE it for a "rainy day"!  If you are lucky enough to have Salmon, don't delay....give this HEALTHY recipe a try!

Baked Garlic Salmon
4 lbs Salmon fillet
3-4 T canola oil 
3-4 T fresh squeezed (right from the lemon) lemon juice
2-3 cloves garlic, minced (I used 2, if you like a more "garlicky" flavor, go for the 3)
1 t. sea salt
1 t. pepper

Place salmon in a glass baking dish. In a mixing bowl, combine other ingredient. Mix and pour over salmon. Bake uncovered at 425 degrees for 7-10 minutes (depending on thickness), turn fish over and cook for another 7-10 minutes. Fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork. Make sure you don't overcook or it will be tough and dry....watch it carefully. Remove from the oven and serve with desired side dish.
