Baked Salmon

This is the first recipe I ever tried with salmon fillets, and it is the single recipe that I keep coming back to. It is very easy to make, and turns out splendid every single time. For the first 6 months of marriage I served this every weekend with fried onions and homemade potato chips.

I don't typically measure most of the ingredients as the recipe doesn't really need measurements. I'll give a few, though, for clarity's sake. All measurements are "to taste."

Ingredients

2 salmon fillets
1 lemon, halved (for juice)
2-3 tbs flour
1 tbs butter
Paprika
salt

Preheat oven to 350.

Place salmon fillets in greased pan, pink side up.

Squeeze juice of lemon onto fillets. I prefer LOTS of lemon flavor, so I prick the fillet a few times with a fork to allow it to hold more juice. My husband prefers less, so I don't prick his.

Melt butter and brush a thin coating over the fillets. Sift an even coating of flour over fillets. Sprinkle with paprika. Salt and pepper to taste.

 Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes until salmon is almost cooked through. Broil about 1 minute until the flour is browned. Garnish with lemon slices or wedges. Enjoy!!!
