Oven Roasted Citrus-Butter Wild Copper River Salmon - Easy, Sustainable, Low Carb
This evening I made my favorite Wild Copper River Salmon for dinner. I picked it up at Costco, who had it for $14.99/lb this past weekend (it was $16.99/lb the weekend prior). I kept it simple and seasoned it with sea salt and pepper and put softened butter on top and then alternated fresh orange and lemon slices. I popped it into a preheated 450 degree oven and then immediately reduced the oven temp to 425 degrees and roasted it for 10-12 minutes (depending on thickness), then removed it from the oven and covered it with heavy duty foil and let it sit about 5 minutes. It turned out delicious. I served it with steamed cauli-rice (raw cauliflower grated with a box grater then briefly steamed in the microwave) tossed with butter and diced multi-colored baby tomatoes. It was a healthy, quick and delicious meal. I snapped a few photos below. If you'd like to try another delicious version of this beautiful salmon...be sure to check out my Roasted Copper River Salmon w/ Dijon Cream Sauce. Enjoy!
