Baked Salmon with herbs

After a full week of eating donuts for breakfast, lunch and dinner, a much needed detox was in order to start the week. Salmon is always my first idea for a healthy and filling meal.

1 tbsp of dill

1 tbsp of thyme

1 tbsp of oregano

Heat the oven to 400. Coat a large baking dish with cooking spray. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the fish. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil with all the remaining herbs and the lemon zest. Let it rest for a couple of minutes and coat the fish. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes.

Turn the broiler on. Season the fish on both sides with olive oil, salt and pepper. Arrange them skin side up and sprinkle some paprika. Broil for 8 minutes.
