Whole Baked Salmon
1 whole Salmon
Thyme leaves chopped
Sage leaves chopped
Ground cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place the whole Salmon in a baking tray. Sprinkle with sage, thyme, paprika and pepper and cover the whole pan with aluminum foil.
Bake Salmon for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until easily flaked with a fork. This time is if the Salmon is defrosted or fresh (if frozen it needs longer in the oven and you have to check to see when it is ready).
Serve with steamed vegetables cut in nice slices. My healthy suggestions for vegetables are carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, mashed potatoes. For me I don´t eat the mashed potatoes on my diet, so the mash can be made of mashed cauliflowers and it will be delicious. Still if you make the dish for others who don´t avoid carbohydrates, you can make some side dish with mashed potatoes as well for them.
You can make a sauce for the Salmon if you prefer. A healthy sauce can be made of fish broth (if you get this in the pan when the fish is ready. And you can thicken it with some tapioca starch and season with salt and pepper. If you don´t have fish broth you can boil milk and season with cubes of fish broth and salt and pepper.
Serving place the whole Salmon on a nicely decorated tray. Decorate with salad leaves, nicely sliced tomatoes and cucumber and add some fresh chopped thyme on top.
