Baked Salmon & The 17 Day Diet

Diet is truly a four letter word.  I have been on the 17 Day Diet for 8 days, 16 hours and 32 minutes but who is counting.  I really shouldn't complain because I have already lost 6 and a half pounds!  During the first 17 days or Cycle 1 you are allowed to eat lean protein and salmon is on the list.  I have never made salmon and thought I didn't care for it.  After eating chicken for a few days I decided to give it a try.  But how?   I did what I normally do when I need to know how to do something.  I Googled it.  Bunch of different ways to do this but this one is sooooo easy and turned out perfectly yummy.  All you have to do is place the salmon on a baking pan, drizzle with a little olive oil (allowed on diet), and season with salt and pepper.  Place it in a COLD oven and then set to 400 degrees.  If you are baking one big piece (1+ lb) it will take about 30 minutes.  When I baked two individual pieces it took almost 25 minutes.  It will flake easily with a fork when it is done.  How easy was that?  Guess this 17 Day Diet isn't so bad after all.
