Serves approximately 6 people
2lbs Salmon, skin removed
place the salmon on a foil covered baking sheet. Either using a brush, back of a spoon or schmear with your hands the 5 tablespoon of the preserved lemon paste on both sides of the fish. Set your oven for broil and let the salmon cook for 10-15 minutes. If the salmon got enough color on the to, place it in the oven for the remaining of the time. Broil until the fish flakes easily with a fork
When the fish is ready I like to brush the other 2 tablespoon of lemon paste. If you are making it for the first time I would suggest you try it once its out of the oven and according to your taste decide if you want to coat it with more preserved lemon.
Feel free to substitute the salmon with your preferred fish.
If you would rather not use the broiler function on your oven, just preheat your oven to 400f/450f, place the baking sheet and roast until salmon is cooked through.
The salmon is naturally oily so there's no need to add any extra oil to the recipe, if using any other fish I would a drizzle olive oil.
When the weather is nice, I prefer to grill the fish. make sure to buy skin on salmon to make it easier when grilling.
