Preheat oven to 450 degree. Place salmon fillets, skin side down on foil lined baking sheet. Roast 13-17 minutes, depending on thickness of fillets. For medium rare, about 12 minutes with a spatula press the middle of fillet, if there is a slight resistance, it is done. No resistance -well done. Place fish on platter.
