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.

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.
