How to Bake Salmon

  How to Bake Salmon Because a salmon’s entire life is spent preparing for a difficult swim upstream, the strong muscles and energy stores in its body give the meat a unique taste. Its oily pink flesh gives way to a subtle buttery and nutty flavor that makes it palatable to even the pickiest of fish eaters—making salmon a perfect main dish for a dinner with guests. A simple baked preparation is all that’s needed to showcase the incredible quality of the fish (while also impressing those around your table). However, due to the distinct characteristics of its flesh, there are a few tips to ensure that the fish does not become tough and dry.

Lemonade Cream Cheese Is Spreadable Summer .
Summertime means a return to so many wonderful and simple tastes. Sweet corn with just butter and salt. Meats simply seasoned and cooked on the grill, salads dressed lightly to enhance the delicate textures and flavors. Fruits eaten raw out of hand, with juices running down the arm and chin, or baked quickly into cobblers and crumbles. Something about the summer air just heightens the senses, and warm weather meals, especially if eaten outdoors, need very little gilding to make them magical. Summer drinks, too, go simpler, tall and iced. Gin and tonics, rye and ginger, rum and Coke. Cold beer in bottles and cans.
