The Best Crispy Baked Salmon Fillet Recipe

What’s not to love about a perfectly baked salmon fillet? I love how you can add them over salad, enjoy as is, serve with a side of rice, quinoa or loads of veggies. There are pretty much two types of fish I love to eat that aren’t too fishy. Salmon and white fish like cod. Salmon is my favorite though. This Baked Salmon recipe has such an amazing flavor to it and I bet you will love it as much as I do.
