I have been trying to avoid posting my own food photos because they are not well taken. After some tips from my friends, I took the courage to post this first one.

This is a brilliant recipe I found from the internet. There is no mistake; 200 degrees Fahrenheit or 93 degrees Celsius is the temperature to bake the fish. Like other reviews, I also had a lot of doubt about the low heat at first. I tried it twice and it turns out perfect both times. Low heat is the magic to bake salmon into this moist and firm texture.

One thing to take note is to find out the actual temperature of your oven. The scale of the temperature knob may not be the actual heat if it’s not calibrated. I am using an oven that is almost ten years old. I got to turn the knob till it reaches the 125 degrees point to get it right.


Salmon fillets or steaks

Olive oil

Sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Dill, marjoram or parsley (dried herbs works fine for me too)

Fun begins

–          Preheat your oven.

–          In an oven proof dish, pour some olive oil, add sea salt, pepper and herbs.

–          If you are using salmon fillets, place the skin side down.

–          Do the same seasoning for the top side.

–          Put it in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.

I like to squeeze a quarter lemon to go with it. It’s that easy! Try and let me know how it goes!
