I love this fish because it is super easy to prepare(5 minutes or less) and is fresh and colorful. This recipe would also be great using other types of fish, such as tilapia or halibut. Honestly, it is compatible with almost any fish.
- 3 oz Butter Ghee for Whole30
- 1 tsp Coarse Real Salt
- Zest of 1 Lemon
- 1 T Fresh Parsley chopped
- 1 t Fresh Dill chopped
- 1 Clove Garlic minced
- Dash of White Pepper
- 4 4-5 oz Wild Salmon Fillets
Place all ingredients except for salmon in a small bowl and melt in the microwave for 30-45 seconds.
Stir until combined.
Place the salmon fillets on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Using a pastry brush, coat the salmon with the lemon herb butter, evenly spreading it over the tops of each fillet.
Bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees on the top or second to top rack for 10-12 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
Alternately the fish can be broiled on medium/high on the second to top rack for 8-10 minutes, or until cooked through. This method will give you a bit more crunchy, caramelized crust.
