This dish is good on its own, or try flaking the fish over farfalle or other short pasta.

Instructions Checklist
  • Lightly season salmon with salt and pepper; arrange in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, about 1 inch apart.

  • In a small bowl, stir together basil, shallot, lemon zest and juice, oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a pinch of pepper. Dividing evenly, spread mixture over the salmon fillets. Cover with foil; place in the refrigerator, and let marinate 20 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bake (still covered) until salmon is opaque throughout, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
