|1||Salmon fillet or steak|
|½ cup||Half-and-half or milk (or less)|
|½ teaspoon||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.
