Lemon and Herb Baked Salmon

Spring is FINALLY here. The snow has all melted, it is still only in the high 40's to mid 50's but hey, the sun is out so I will take it! In honor of this sunny weather, here is a salmon recipe that uses fresh herbs, garlic and fresh lemon juice.


3 oz. butter
1 tsp. salt
Zest from 1 lemon
1 Tbs. fresh parsley
2 tsp. fresh dill
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. cracked pepper
3-4 salmon fillets (4-5 oz. each)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine all of the above ingredients together, minus the salmon, cover, and microwave for 30-45 seconds. Stir the mixture. Place the salmon fillets skin side down on the parchment paper and top with the melted butter and herb sauce. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the salmon is fully cooked through.
