Eazy Baked Salmon with thyme

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

one hell of a gorgeous dish!

i personally think that this is the simplest way to bake Salmon. and thyme and lemon is the perfect combination for baking salmon, they work really well. i baked these lovely salmon for our 'healthy' cook out last week but it somehow turned out not so healthy coz some of us keep asking the usual menu like gravy and adding other certain 'not so healthy ingredients.

i was in charge for the Salmon, my sister was in charge of the saute veges, my brother in law was in charge of baked Cod (which turned out execellent by the way)...my brother was responsible for the desserts (he made jello)

if was a fun family event. all of us was there ...oh did i mention that my lil brother just got married? yes he did last thursday...our side of reception is this saturday...i'll upload their pictures later in a different entry.

anyway enuf chatter, heres the BAKED SALMON recipe..

what you need:-

4 large salmon cuts
1 sprig of thyme
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
juice of a whole lemon
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 tbsp olive oil

clean the salmon meat and just rub all the ingredients evenly then sprinkle the lemon zest and let it sit just a few minutes then bake for about 12-15 minutes at 200c. you'll know that your fish is done when they became flakey but becareful not to over bake them or they'll be dry. check on them but fish usually doesnt take much time to cook.

then you may serve them as it is (like i did) or place them in a fancy serving plate.

this recipe will be even more complete if you have hollendaise sauce (is that how you spell it?)...


this is the saute vege my sister made

the baked cod - i have no idea what my brother in law put in it

BBQ chicken - my brother in law made, i think theres bird eye chilies, crushed garlic, honey, curry leaves and salt to taste - it was great!

this is the unhealthy part where we had homemade mash potatoes infused mayonese and garlic gravy with cream...
who can resist the gorgeous food??
and thats my children...who ate aLOT of the served FOOD...
