Simply Baked Northwest Salmon

TOR CHEEKA

How delicious thing are when you keep them simple and cook them right! This salmon was freshly caught from our Peninsula waters the morning I baked it. You can fillet a salmon out, or cut it cross wise and make "steaks." The trouble with steaks is you get alot of bones. When you fillet it, there are little to no bones (depending on your expertise).

Ingredients

1-2 tsp
salt
1-2 tsp
pepper
1 small
walla walla sweet onion

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Fillet salmon out and wash it very well so there is no blood in the backbone (the crease).
2
Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
3
Slice onion into rings and spread along the top.
4
For added flavor you can add bacon slices as well (I rarely do this). The grease from bacon compliments the fish.
5
Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 20 minutes, keeping your eye on the fish after 15 minutes. The fish should flake easily with a touch of a fork, and yet still be very juicy.
