Salt-Baked Herbed Salmon

by | Main Dish | 1 comment

As a part of my New Year Reset, I aim to identify healthy, simple dishes for dinner.  This Herb Roasted Salmon from Genius Recipes from Food52 meets these criteria.  I’ve made it several times and even done a few variations that are equally as good.  It’s my new favorite way to cook salmon.

Salt-Baked Herbed Salmon
 
Ingredients
  • 3 lbs salmon fillet, bones removed, skin intact
  • 2 tbs mixed minced fresh herbs: tarragon, basil, flat-leaf parsley and thyme
  • 2 tbs fennel seeds, cracked (I didn't do this)
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • ½ tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • Rock or Kosher salt for lining pan
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cover a sheet pan with foil. (I don't do this but probably should for even easier clean up)
  3. Pour rock or kosher salt into the pan covering the surface.
  4. Place salmon in the pan, skin side down.
  5. Sprinkle herbs, fennel seeds and salt and pepper over the salmon.
  6. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes depending upon size of fillet and temperature desired.
  7. To serve, use a wide spatula to remove the salmon from the salt base.
  8. Skin should stick to the salmon.
  9. Serve.

I have also made this recipe with only dried herbs and it was equally as good.  You can experiment with your favorite herbs as well.  Last night I used this method of baking but simply combined 1/2 cup Dijon mustard and 1/8 cup of Maple Syrup and poured it over the salmon before baking.  I served both with a simple salad of arugula dressed with lemon flavored olive oil, salt and pepper.

Let me know what you think when you make this.  It is now a family favorite!
