Learn to Cook Part 2: Baked Salmon in a Butter Sauce
Another addition to The Cuban's Learn to Cook tutorial. This time: Salmon. Fish is not as difficult as it people make it out to be. The key is to mask the fishy taste. Hold up, for fish, you don't want to taste fish? Yep, I know this seems oxymoronic but its the main key. The best way to accent fish is citrus. Lemon, Orange, Lime, citrus fruits are able to not only mask the fishy taste, but gives a light acidic taste that gives your fish a little umph. To further your pallet, add lemon pepper with your citrus fruit.
Preheat the oven at 400 degrees.
Cut a Piece Butter and melt it in a pot. Make sure you have enough to cover then entire fish.
Season the Fish as best as you can. Use alot of pepper, Basil, Salt, and parsley.
Cut the Lemon in Half and squeeze the lemon on the fish. Use both pieces if you have alot of fish.
Poor the melted butter on the salmon. Put the Squeeze pieces of lemon in the pan to bake.
Cover the Salmon with aluminum. Poke holes in the aluminum.
Cook for 30 minutes. Uncover for the last 15.
