Baked Salmon

For New Years my love and I wanted to make something special. D loves salmon, but we don't get it very often. We found a tasty marinade online and set it to soak.

Then D started to feel icky, so we let the fish sit overnight, cooking it the next night when my dear friend P was here. It was a-m-a-z-i-n-g! From now on we are going to let our fish marinade overnight. It really brought out the garlic and basil. 

We served it with mixed veggies and rolls, paired with some chardonnay. A very tasty New Years treat. 

Taken from All Recipes:


  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 (6 ounce) fillets salmon


  1. In a medium glass bowl, prepare marinade by mixing garlic, light olive oil, basil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and parsley. Place salmon fillets in a medium glass baking dish, and cover with the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator about 1 hour, turning occasionally.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Place fillets in aluminum foil, cover with marinade, and seal. Place sealed salmon in the glass dish, and bake 35 to 45 minutes, until easily flaked with a fork.
