Lemon Dill Oven Roasted Salmon Recipe
Recipe from The New York Times
Prep Time10 mins

Total Time20 mins
- 4 tablespoons 1/2 stick butter
- 4 tablespoons minced chervil parsley or dill
- 1 salmon fillet 1 1/2 to 2 pounds
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- Lemon wedges
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees. Place the 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 the butter melts and the herb begins to sizzle.
Add the salmon to the pan, skin side up. Roast 4 minutes. Remove from the oven, then peel the skin off. (If the 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 to 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.
