Lemon Herb Salmon Recipe
One of our favorite recipes; the lemon and herbs make for a perfectly tangy and flaky salmon.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 8 servings
- 2 lbs fresh salmon filet
- 6 lemons sliced
- 6 tbsp butter softened
- 2 tsp garlic crushed
- 2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp dried dill
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 1/2 tsp ground celery seed
preheat your oven to 350.
mix the garlic, salt, pepper, herbs and butter together.
lay down foil on a cookie sheet, and place half the sliced lemons on top.
Clean the salmon in cold water, pat dry with a paper towel. rub the butter mixture all over both sides.
Place the salmon on the lemons, then cover it with the rest of the lemons.
Seal the foil together, adding more foil if you need to.
bake for 10 mins for each inch (so a 2 inch thick filet will cook for 20 mins) or 15 mins per lbs (so 30 mins for 2 lbs). The goal is to hit 145 degrees for cooked salmon - I pull it out at 140 and it will continue to cook a little once you pull it out.
