Easy Butter-Roasted Salmon
A simple but delicious
way to prepare salmon! Wonderful served with our popular Superfood Salad,
available in our deli.
Preparation time: 30 minutes
- 4 tablespoons (½ stick)
- 4 tablespoons minced
chervil, parsley or dill
- 1 (1 ½ to 2 pounds)
- Salt and freshly ground
pepper to taste
- Lemon wedges, for
- Heat oven to 475 F.
Place butter and half the herb in a roasting pan just large enough to fit the
salmon and place it in the oven. Heat about 5 minutes, until butter melts and
herb begins to sizzle.
- Add salmon to the pan,
skin side up. Roast 4 minutes. Remove from oven, then peel skin off. (If skin
does not lift right off, cook 2 minutes longer.) Sprinkle with salt and pepper
and turn the fillet over. Sprinkle with salt and pepper again.
- Roast 3-5 minutes more,
depending on the thickness of the fillet and the degree of doneness you prefer.
Cut into serving portions, spoon a little of the butter over each and garnish
with the remaining herb. Serve with lemon wedges.
