Arrange skin side down in baking dish. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Bake for 40 minutes to 1 hour, checking for browning on the edges.

Recipe Notes

We typically use a combination of avocado oil and ghee.  They both have a high smoke point. If you are going to use olive oil, make sure you use a really good quality olive oil with a high smoke point.  Or turn the temperature down to 425 degrees F.
