Baked Citrus-Herb Salmon

This citrus infused dish is delicious and great this time of year when citrus is readiy available. It is quick to prepare and quite showy for little effort. As always with LAWLS recipes the left-overs are great! And clean-up is a breeze when you line the pan with foil.

Non-fat Cooking spray
1 skinless salmon fillet (figure 4-ounces/person)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons grated lemon rind
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1 bunch fresh herbs: chives, thyme, oregano and tarragon
1 or 2 lemons thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 450°.

Line a shallow roasting pan with foil; coat foil with cooking spray.

Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Combine rinds; spread over fish. Arrange chives, thyme, oregano, and tarragon horizontally across fish. Arrange lemon slices on top of herbs.

Place fish on prepared pan. Cover with foil; seal. Bake at 450° for 30 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve warm or at room temperature.
