Baked Salmon

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 Tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

4 thin lemon slices

2 (4 ounce) salmon fillets

In a medium glass bowl, prepare marinade by mixing garlic, light olive oil, basil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and parsley. Place salmon fillets in a medium glass baking dish, and cover with the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator about 1 hour, turning occasionally. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place entire glass dish with marinade into oven. Cover salmon with the lemon slices, and bake 15 minutes, until easily flaked with a fork.

I served this dish with brown rice and spinach sauted in cooking spray.
