Baked Salmon (and broiled)

Baked salmon is a healthy meal that is simple and quick to prepare. 

A basic recipe:
Start by preheating the oven to 450 degrees F.  Lightly brush a baking dish or pan with a small amount of natural grapeseed oil.  Place the salmon skin side down in the baking dish.  Brush the top of the fish with a light coating of grapeseed oil.  Season with salt and pepper or other herb/spice blend you prefer.  Put the salmon in the oven for 15 minutes, checking 10-12 minutes to make sure it isn't cooking too fast as oven temperatures vary.  Remove the salmon and allow to rest for three to five minutes.
