1 Salmon fillet or steak
1/2 c Half-and-half or milk (or
-less) 1/2 ts Minced fresh dill, chopped
-chives, or basil -Salt (optional)
This is the easiest way I know to cook tender and delicate salmon. It's especially good prepared with fresh dillQbut if you prefer chives or basil, it's still a delightful dish. Preheat oven to 350!F. Place salmon in shallow baking dish and add half and-half or milk so fish is half immersed. Sprinkle with dill, chives or basil, and salt if desired. Bake 30 minutes, occasionally spooning some of the half-and-half or milk over salmon. Check for doneness; when fish is predominately pale pink but is still a somewhat darker pink in center, it's done. Makes one serving.
