Baked Salmon with Lemon Butter and Capers

Believe it or not, I just tried Salmon for the first time 2 weeks ago.  I was always terrified that it would taste fishy.  Perhaps it can, but I have yet to find out.  This was sooooo healthy, easy, and tasty!  What a juicy, meaty fish.  And no, baking it doesn't make the house stink like fish.  A good weeknight meal.  :)

Serves 2


2, 1" thick fresh salmon fillets (I only use fresh market, whole foods or mediterranean market fish)
1/4 Stick margarine
2 Tbsp capers
1 Tsp lemon zest
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Garlic Powder
Minced onion


Heat oven to 350.  Melt margarine and mix with seasons, lemon zest and lemon juice.  Pour over salmon in a 9x13" glass pan.  Turn salmon over once to coat each side.  Sprinkle with capers and bake for about 15 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked in the middle (pink).
