Oven baked Salmon fillet with lime aioli

Something that i really like here in Sweden is that i can find fresh salmon in a good price. I love salmon and i am eating it at least once a week so i try to find different ways to cook it so we don't eat the same every week and it doesn't get boring! Yesterday i made salmon in the oven, very simple and fast and i made my own aioli sauce.

You will need:
(for 2 persons)

2 salmon fillet
Salt, pepper
Olive oil

For the aioli you will need:

150 gr mayonnaise
1 crushed garlic clove
Juice of half lime
Zest of 1 lime

Preheat the oven at 180 degrees for about 10 minutes. Clean the fillets and brush them with olive oil, add salt, pepper and dill. Lay them in an oven tray with non stick baking paper. Put it in the middle of the oven and let the fish be cooked at 200 degrees for about 15 minutes, not more it will get dry.

While the fish is in the oven you can prepare the aioli. Put the mayonnaise in a bowl and add the lime juice, the zest, the garlic, the pepper and some chives chopped in small pieces. Stir well and put it in the fridge.

You can serve the salmon with boiled potatoes and salad.  I baked my potatoes in an aluminum foil in the oven.

Bon Appetit
