Ingredients
  • 4 salmon (fresh or thawed) fillets
  • 3 Tbl grass fed butter (I use kerrygold)
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • ½ tsp salt (I personally use pink himalayan)
  • ½ tsp black or white pepper
  • zest from 1 lemon (then use the remaining lemon for slices)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Line a baking pan or dish with parchment paper.
  3. In a small bowl, combine butter, dill, garlic, salt/pepper and lemon zest.
  4. Microwave thoroughly until melted but be careful not to burn the butter. About 25 seconds.
  5. Using a pastry brush, brush melted mixture generously onto each fillet. Place a lemon slice on top of each fillet at the fattest part.
  6. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes on the middle or top rack. I checked mine at 10, using a fork to check for flakiness and decided it needed another 2½ minutes because I like my salmon on the firmer side. Whatever your preference, check it at 10 minutes and go from there.
  7. Serve.
