  • 1 pounds - salmon fillet, with skin
  • 2 - oranges, washed, sliced thinly with peel on
  • - black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cups - finely minced fresh flat-leaf (Italian) parsley
  • Directions:

    1. Lay a large piece of aluminum foil in a 9-x-12-inch cake pan, with enough extra on either end to bring together on the top.

    2. Lay salmon fillet on the foil inside the pan. Sprinkle with black pepper to your taste. Cover surface of fillet with orange slices and then parsley.

    3. Seal foil tightly.

    4. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-40 minutes, depending on thickness of salmon, or until salmon is cooked thoroughly. You will know when salmon is cooked because flesh will turn opaque orange throughout the total thickness.

    5. Cut into 4 even pieces, removing the skin as you do. Divide orange slices between each serving. The cooked orange flesh and parsley are excellent accompaniments to the salmon.
