Slow Roasted Salmon with Garlic & Herbs

Since salmon is a fish rich in healthy fats, it is often cooked at a high heat to help give it a crispy crust, however salmon is also delicious when slow-roasted. This foolproof method helps keep salmon moist and beautifully tender with every bite. 


2 salmon fillets  **

1 clove garlic, minced or grated

2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp fresh parsley

2 tbsp fresh tarragon

1 tbsp fresh chives

Olive oil

Sea salt 

Black pepper


Preheat oven to 275F.

In a bowl, combine the melted butter with the garlic, lemon juice, parsley, tarragon and chives.

Drizzle some olive oil in the bottom of baking dish, place the salmon fillets skin side down, and season with a pinch of sea salt and black pepper.

Spread half of the herb mixture over each piece of the salmon, ensuring it is well covered.

Cover the baking dish tightly with aluminum foil and transfer to the oven for 35 minutes until salmon is barely opaque in the center.

Once cooked, remove salmon from the oven and serve with a wedge of lemon and vegetables of your choice.

Nada’s Tips & Tricks: I tried this recipe a few times changing up the greens using cilantro and spinach along with the chives and both versions came out great. The greens give the salmon a nice fresh counterbalance to the fat in the fish. Easy and makes a lovely presentation on a plate.
