This quick and simple recipe is finished with a broil for a rich and buttery texture. Parsley adds presentation quality that is fresh and beautiful atop the juicy salmon fillets. Your taste buds will definitely want to return to this garlic-butter, seafood classic.


1¼ Pounds Salmon Fillet
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp cold butter, cubed
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp Italian seasoning
¼ red pepper flakes
1 tbsp chopped parsley, for
garnishing (optional)


Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375 °F.

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the lemon juice, garlic, and butter. When butter is completely melted, remove sauce from heat.
Place the salmon filet in a piece of foil large enough to fold over and seal.

Using a brush or spoon, brush the salmon with the garlic butter sauce. Season with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes. Cover with foil so that all sides are
properly closed so the sauce does not leak.

Bake the salmon for 10-12 minutes or until firm. Open the foil and allow the fish to broil under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, keeping an eye on it so the fish does not burn. Remove
from oven, top with parsley. Serve immediately.
