Full Answer

To start, preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut a 12-ounce salmon fillet into four separate pieces. Season each piece with coarse-grained salt and freshly ground black pepper. Next, place the four salmon pieces, with the skin side down, on a non-stick baking sheet. A non-stick pan with an oven-proof handle works as well. Bake the salmon pieces for approximately 12 to 15 minutes, until the fish is cooked through.

A recommended side dish for the oven-baked salmon, also featured on the Food Network, is a toasted almond parsley salad. To start, mince one shallot, and place it in a small bowl. Pour 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar over the shallots, and add a pinch of coarse-grained salt. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes.

Next, chop 2 tablespoons of capers, 1 cup of fresh flat-leaf parsley and 1/2 cup of toasted almonds. Add these ingredients to the shallot mixture. Finally, add extra-virgin olive oil, and mix again. Adjust both seasonings and oil to taste.
