Simple Roasted Salmon

Since salmon is so healthy for us, I am always on the lookout for new methods of preparing and cooking this most nutritious protein.  I came across this unique method of cooking on another blog and just had to try it.  The salmon was simply prepared by rubbing with olive oil and seasoning with salt and pepper.  The salmon was then placed in a baking dish and placed in a cold oven.  The oven was turned on to 400 degrees.  25 minutes later, you have perfectly cooked salmon.  Could it get any easier?  I don't think so.  Our side dishes were cauliflower and turnip puree and grilled asparagus spears.

Simple Roasted Salmon
Makes 2 servings

1 pound salmon fillet
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Set salmon on a rimmed baking sheet; coat both sides with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper.  Place baking sheet in the cold oven, then heat oven to 400 degrees.  Roast until salmon is just opaque throughout, about 25 minutes.  Serve with lemon wedges.
