I love when cooking is easy and takes no time. And leaves nearly no dishes! Oven baked salmon has become my go-to meal when I’m too lazy for kitchen creativity. Where others throw a frozen pizza in the oven, I throw some fish filets in there. I don’t need tons of sides, either – some green beans with salt and olive oil is enough. If you eat butter, that’s even better with the fish. This is the new fast food, people!
