Sweet Lemon Salmon

We love salmon.   Ever since the hubs and I were in college we have made salmon at least once a week.  My favorite way to prepare it was a recipe from Rachel Ray’s 365: No Repeats, and it still is the husbands preferred method, however it is a lot of work, and it makes so many dishes.  After reading a recipe on my friend’s blog Books and Bites that was very similar, but much simpler, I formed my own version.

Start by preheating the oven to 400°F.  Next place three or four, four ounce fillets in a glass baking dish, skin side down.  Season the fillets by squeezing juice from one lemon over them, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Next top each fillet with two tablespoons of brown sugar and mash it all down.

Place the salmon in the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until it is cooked through.
Drizzle some of the sauce over each fillet on the plate before serving.
Including prep time this dish takes less than a half hour to prepare, and it is all done in one small baking dish.  Enjoy!
