  • Baking Sheet


  • 2 lb salmon fillets (6 fillets)
  • olive oil
  • 6 tbsp salted butter, softened not melted
  • cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon zest
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • salt & pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    Spray or brush a little olive oil on a baking sheet.
    Take salmon fillets out of the fridge and pat dry with a paper towel.
    Arrange salmon skin side down on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
    In a small mixing bowl combine softened butter, parsley, lemon zest and garlic with a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined.
    Scoop equal amounts of the butter mixture on top of each salmon fillet (about 1-2 tbsp per fillet). Spread over the top of the fillets to coat as evenly as possible.
    Bake the salmon in a 400 degree F oven for about 12-14 minutes until flaking.
    Remove from the oven and serve or use for meal prep (see ideas above).
