If you have a piece of fresh salmon is this the absolutely best way to cook it. Impossible to make it simpler and so good! I put the oven to 180 degrees and add some sugar and salt to the salmon - no, it won't make it taste sweet. Sprinkle some olive oil on top and leave to marinate for about 15 minutes or until the oven is warm. Put it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon and if you want it a bit raw in the middle or not.
We have it with aioli and rice, warm or cold. Even better cold the day after if you ask me. And - important - the children love it!
This is a typical French recipe. Take a good quality fresh ingredient, mess with it as little as possible. Eat and enjoy.
