A very simple salmon recipe!

  • 1 lbs. salmon, fresh, wild-caught
  • 1 lemon, fresh, organic
  • 1 tbs. dill weed, fresh, organic
  • 1 tbs. tarragon, fresh, organic
  • 1 tbs. parsley, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper, ground, organic
  • 2 tbs. butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured

Preheat oven to 350°F. Rinse fish, pat dry, and cut into 4 portions. Shred 1 teaspoon of peel from lemon, set aside. Cut lemon in half, juice half the lemon. In a small bowl, combine lemon peel, snipped herbs, salt, pepper, and butter, stir to combine. Spread evenly over the salmon.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add salmon (herbed side down). Cook for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Turn salmon, pour lemon juice over salmon. Place skillet in oven and bake for 3 to 7 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Place salmon on plates, and drizzle with leftover juices from skillet. Top with additional shredded lemon peel and snipped fresh herbs.
