For the salmon:

  • 2 salmon fillets thawed
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • ¼ teaspoon dried parsley
  • Salt and pepper

For the salad (optional):

  • 2 slices bacon chopped
  • 2 cups spinach


  • Preheat oven to 450°.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil, making sure there's a bit hanging off of the edges, then place the salmon skin side down on the foil.
  • Whisk the olive oil, garlic and parsley together, then brush the marinade over top of the salmon, making sure it's completely coated. Then, sprinkle each salmon fillet with salt and pepper.
  • Fold up the foil so that it completely covers the salmon, then bake for 12-15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through.
  • While salmon is cooking, make the "salad": Add the bacon to a large skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes, then add the spinach and sauté for 1 minute until it's wilted.
  • Transfer the cooked salmon and spinach/bacon to a plate and enjoy!
