Baked salmon with crispy herbs

This is funny because I actually made a detailed video of my making of this recipe. And we had technical difficulties, the filming was a bit shaky so I decided not to post. But, the salmon was so delicious! I mean incredibly delicious! I had to share with you! And really, it’s so easy to make. I recommend making this for Mother’s Day! I served mine with roasted sweet potato wedges and crispy roasted asparagus.  The funniest part is that because I was making a video and that we wanted to benefit from daylight, we filmed it in the middle of the afternoon and dinner was ready at 4 pm!! It smelled and looked so delicious and I was tempted to dig in.. but we eat at 7- 7:30 these days and so at 4 pm, I wasn’t hungry. So I wrapped it up and reheated it later and it was still incredibly delicious!!!

In my video I was explaining how much I love cooking with fresh herbs. I know some people find it difficult to purchase herbs because they come in big bunches and after you use a little in one recipe, they sometimes get forgotten and go bad. For me, I integrate them in everything I make, they add taste and they are super healthy. In this recipe, you will be using a bunch and the more the better!! And the lemon slices also add such a delicious taste so they are important as well.

Also, for the salmon, you will see the quantity is approximate from 300-500 g. This is because if you are buying your salmon at the supermarket, there are good chances that you may only be able to purchase pre-wrapped salmon. This recipe will work with an approximate quantity in that range and it therefore will serve from 2-3 people.  If your salmon is on the smaller range, feel free to use less butter.


Ingredients  (Serves 2-3)

  • 1 tbsp. olive or avocado oil
  • 1 salmon filet approx. 300-500 g
  • 3 slices of fresh lemon plus more for drizzling
  • 2-3 tbsp. butter, soft but not melted
  • 1 handful chopped cilantro (1/2 cup packed)
  • 1 handful chopped mint (1/2 cup packed)
  • 1 handful chopped dill (1/2 cup packed)
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes


  • Set your oven at 425 degrees.
  • Drizzle oil onto a 9 X 13 baking dish (any baking sheet or dish will do)
  • Place salmon fillet in the middle of dish, skin side down
  • Place the 3 lemon slices on top of the fillet at equal distance from each other
  • Break down your butter into little pieces and scatter on top of fish
  • Mix the 3 herbs together and top salmon with herbs (herbs go on top of butter and lemon)
  • Add salt and pepper to taste (good coarse sea salt makes all the difference)
  • Scatter tomatoes around the salmon (some of the butter will melt into the tomatoes and it becomes divine)
  • Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes

Enjoy!! And Happy Mother’s Day
