Wild-caught salmon is a great source of protein, omega-3 fatty acid & vitamin D. It’s also (in my opinion) the tastiest fish out there so you really don’t need to do much to it when cooking.

My daughter loves to eat salmon so I cook this dish for her whenever there’s a good looking piece of fresh wild-caught salmon at the market. It’s really simple to make & takes less than 20 minutes to prep & cook.

Salt & pepper

Instructions
Preheat your over to 350 degrees. Salt & pepper the salmon to your own taste. Grease the bottom of a small skillet with some of the butter. Cook the salmon over high heat in the skillet for 2 minutes.

Roughly tear the basil leaves & place on top of the salmon with the rest of the butter. Cover the skillet & bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

Squeeze lemon juice on top & serve.
