- 4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 lemon, thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)
Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
Prepare the Salmon: Place the salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each fillet.
Season the Salmon: Drizzle the olive oil evenly over the salmon fillets. Sprinkle the minced garlic and dried oregano over the fillets. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Add Lemon Slices: Lay the lemon slices on top of the salmon fillets. You can also squeeze some fresh lemon juice over them for extra flavor.
Bake the Salmon: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 15-20 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork and reaches your desired level of doneness. Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the fillets.
Garnish and Serve: Once the salmon is done, remove it from the oven. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired. Serve hot.
