Simple Salt and Pepper Salmon

Atlantic Salmon filet, cut into 4-ounce servings
1/2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon unsalted butter, optional
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. If you are cooking multiple fillets, make sure there is room between each fillet on the pan.
2. Rub the oil into each side of the salmon. Place on prepared sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with small pat of butter, if using. Roast for 8 to 10 minutes per inch thickness of largest fillet. Salmon will flake easily with a fork when done. Do not overcook. If you have several thinner fillets on your pan, remove them when done and return larger pieces back to the oven to finish.
