Bon Appetit Slow-Baked Salmon with Lemon and Thyme

Since my family eats a lot of meat every week, I have been trying to include more seafood in our diet. If my five year old was in charge of meal planning we would have shrimp every night, but I enjoy a larger variety of fish and shell fish. Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest, I love salmon and could eat it practically everyday. I have been trying to introduce more fish to my children's diet and was pleased when a recent issue of Bon Appetit magazine had a recipe for Slow-Baked Salmon with Lemon and Thyme.

With only six ingredients, including salt and pepper, this recipe goes together very quickly. The total time was approximately 30 minutes, with 10 minutes being for the fish to marinade. The ingredients are simple. allowing for the flavor of the salmon to take center stage.

This recipe went over well in my household. My five year old loved the salmon and ate his serving and the leftovers later in the evening. I appreciated that the salmon was left to speak for itself, instead of relying on a heavy sauce or marinade. This is a great simple, salmon recipe.

*I will be posting the recipe for the couscous seen on the side of the plate tomorrow*
