Yield: 2
Prep Time: 25 Minutes
Cook Time: 10 Minutes

Ingredients


• 1 large salmon filet, 2 lbs. (skin on)
• 1 large shallot, finely chopped
• 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
• 5 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
• 1 lemon, cut in half
• 3 tablespoons olive oil
• Sea salt (or Kosher salt)
• Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions


Preheat oven to 400° and generously grease a glass baking dish with olive oil. Place salmon filets skin-side down on the foil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, mix the shallot, herbs, olive oil and juice from half the lemon.

Thinly slice the other half of the lemon into rounds. Place on salmon in a row across the top. Gently spoon the herb mixture on top of lemon and pat to cover filet evenly. Bake for 10 - 11 min or just until the salmon is cooked (you can check by inserting the tip of a small knife into the center).

Serve warm.
