Oven Baked Salmon with Butter and Lime

I had nothing to do with this dish...this was Kevin's concoction. I watched him do the prep and it was really pretty easy. We had it with rice and quinoa and steamed cauliflower. It was a really good healthy meal! The kids typically won't eat fish by itself, but we break up the fish into smaller chunks and mix it in with the rice/quinoa and they gobble it up.

FYI: this was our salmon before it went in the oven. 

Gather it:
salmon filet (we got ours at Costco...just under $11 for the whole filet shown above)
about 2 Tbsp melted butter
juice of half of a lime plus a few lime rings
dried parsley
dried cilantro
dried dill

Make it:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil and place salmon on top.

2. Pour melted butter, squeeze lime wedges, and sprinkle remaining 5 ingredients on both sides of salmon. Place a few lime rings on top of filet...I think this just might be "decoration" though. lol

3. Make a loose envelope with the foil by bringing the 2 long sides together in the middle and folding it down. Roll the short sides together.

4. Bake for 20 minutes or until fish is done. Our filet wasn't very thick so it didn't take long to cook.
