herby baked salmon

By the way, if anybody can name those flowers, I'll give you a salmon dinner (yes, you'd have to come to Japan, but hey, sounds fun, right?).

Salmon is my friend, and this baked salmon is pretty easy and very yummy. Lemon juice, olive oil, fresh parsley, dried basil (though I use fresh sometimes), and garlic all meld together in a fragrant marinade that renders your fishies really juicy.

I served mine with cheesy garlic mashed taters, steamed cauliflower and purple cabbage (the fun thing was that it turned the cauliflower a lovely shade of lavender), and a salad with cucumbers, baby yellow tomatoes, and pickled baby pink daikon radishes.

I love salmon too! It should be more people's friend! :)

Jenn, I agree! But we can't get really good thick salmon steaks here like I could in the US or UK.
