You've got to watch that wild salmon

I've said more than once that the fresh wild sockeye salmon from Costco will be ready after only 10 to 12 minutes in a 350-degree oven. Last night, the six pieces I cut from a fillet were done in only 8 minutes (medium to medium rare).

This latest fillet likely was thinner than the ones I bought before. So keep your eye on this fish and adjust the cooking time according to the thickness. I seasoned it with salt, cumin, Aleppo red pepper and chopped fresh oregano.

Eight minutes. Just enough time to grab a fistful of pre-washed organic salad greens and dress them with extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, warm some bread and pour myself a glass of wine. Here's to good eating.
