  Serves 4 Tip: A superior extra-virgin olive oil should be used as a sauce or finishing oil, and never as cooking oil. Including little more than lemon, garlic and oregano, this simple recipe showcases the distinctive character and rich earthy flavors of an extraordinary olive oil.

1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh oregano
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Four 8-ounce salmon steaks (or substitute halibut steaks or swordfish steaks)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 lemon, quartered

This is amazing! I thought I made too much of the herb mixture but it was just enough since I rubbed it all over the salmon. I didn't use a "superior" EVOO but used a pretty good one instead (what I use for cooking, which isn't cheap). Also rubbed the same EVOO on the salmon instead of vegetable oil and used dried oregano instead of fresh. The herb mixture is phenomenal and rubbing the garlic all over the salmon is such a great idea. I baked them at 450 for 22 mins in tin foil tents.
