Okay, salmon is one of my all-time favorite fish. I love it raw, I love it cooked. I like it grilled, baked, poached or fried. Pretty much any way you can make it, I'll eat it with a smile on my face. Salmon is one of those fish that needs minimal added preparation to be delicious. This recipe honors that fact. It is fast, easy and tasty, and it will have your guests clamoring for more.

12 ounce salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces
2 cloves garlic, crushed
½ tablespoon of paprika
1 lemon cut into wedges, for serving
Coarse-grained salt
Freshly ground black pepper


Directions:
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Season salmon with salt and pepper and paprika. Rub with garlic. Place salmon, skin side down, on a non-stick baking sheet or baking dish.

Bake until salmon is cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes.

Serve with lemon wedges. I like to serve it with a side of rice, or with my favorite gluten-free pasta.
