Simple Roasted Salmon

If salmon isn't your thing, substitute almost any fish; try swordfish, halibut or even redfish or trout. If the filet is thin, check the fish after 5-7 minutes in the oven. Top with sesame seeds, your favorite fresh herbs (thyme, basil, parsley or chives) or a squeeze of fresh lemon.

  • Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
