Baked Citrus Salmon

Tonight, I made the yummiest salmon.  Baked Citrus Salmon... I was super easy, fast, light, and low in calories!  I served it with a baked sweet potato, steamed broccoli, and citrus (slice of lime, orange, & lemon) water.  D'reardon loved it!!

Baked Citrus Salmon
serves 2-8
total time 25min, 10min hands-on + 15-20min baking

1-3lb piece salmon fillet (I used 1lb cut into 2 fillets)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2-1 orange, thinly sliced
1/2-1 lemon, thinly sliced
5-12 sprigs fresh thyme (1/2-1 tsp dried thyme)
kosher salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Place slamon on a parchment lined baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt & pepper.  Sprinkle with fresh or dried thyme, and spread orange & lemon slices on and around the salmon.

Bake 15-20 minutes, or until salmon is opaque.  Carefully, transfer salmon to plates (for individual fillets) or to a platter (for large fillet), and scatter orange, lemon, and sprigs of thyme on top.

There is an optional sauce, if you prefer sauces on your salmon... 1/4 cup light mayo, 1 tbsp oraange juice, lemon juice from 1/2 lemon, 1/2 tsp curry powder, kosher salt & pepper.  Whisk all ingredients together, and drizzle over salmon fresh out of the oven.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!!
