  • 1 pound�skinless salmon fillet, cut into 4 portions

  • 1 lemon 

  • 1�tablespoon snipped fresh dill 

  • 1�tablespoon snipped fresh tarragon or lemon thyme 

  • 1�tablespoon snipped fresh Italian parsley or chives 

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 

  • 2�tablespoons butter, softened



  • Preheat oven to 350�F.

  • Shred 1 teaspoon of lemon peel into a small bowl, and set un-squeezed lemon aside.

  • Add the herbs, salt, pepper, and butter to the bowl with shredded lemon peel, and stir to combine. Spread equal portions of the mixture onto the salmon pieces in even layers.

  • Heat a large nonstick oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Place all four pieces of salmon into the skillet with the herb sides facing down. Cook the salmon until golden brown (approximately 3 minutes). Flip the pieces of salmon using a spatula, and squeeze juice from lemon over each piece of fish. Remove the skillet from the stovetop, and place into the oven. Cook the salmon until it becomes opaque and begins to flake with a fork (approximately 5-10 minutes).

  • Put one portion of salmon onto each of 4 dinner plates. Top with juice from the skillet or additional shredded lemon peel and herbs, if desired. Serve immediately.
