Notes

  • I buy and cook my salmon with the skin still on since it adds more flavor and moisture without drying out. It can easily be removed before or during eating, or even eaten if you’re up for it!
  • Parchment paper makes for super easy clean-up and prevents the fish from sticking, but aluminum foil will work as well.
  • If using parchment, spray the baking sheet lightly with oil first. This helps to keep the parchment paper in place.
  • Use the gremolata to top other foods such as baked potatoes, green beans, or even toast!
