Basil Salmon

I have most defiantly realized that basil is the perfect match for salmon. If you are unable to find fresh basil please by all means use it but it not dried works just as well. This beautiful golden fish pairs perfect alongside pasta, salad and asparagus. Please forgive me for my last few pictures they were taken when we were having sandstorms for a few weeks and nothing looks as great as natural light.

1 pound salmon fillet
4 cloves garlic, minced
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon dried basil
black pepper to taste

1. In a small bowl add 4 tablespoons olive oil, lemon juice, honey, salt, pepper and basil. Pour on salmon, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

2. In a 9-inch skillet on medium heat saute garlic in 2 tablespoons olive oil for 2 minutes. Add salmon skin side down. Cook until half way cooked about 10 minutes, carefully flip and cook until thoroughly cooked, about 10 minutes.

Yields: 2 servings
