Herb and Citrus Roasted Salmon
Citrus Herb Roasted Salmon with fresh flavors of lemon juice, white wine and rich olive oil.
Servings: 4 servings
- 2 pounds salmon skin and bones removed
- Salt and pepper
- 2 whole lemons
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup white wine such as Pinot Grigio
- Small bunch of fresh parsley leaves chopped
- Small bunch of fresh dill chopped
- Small bunch of green onions chopped
Begin by drying the salmon filets very well with paper towels. This will help the seasoning stick to the fish better.
Line your baking sheet or cast iron pan with parchment paper and scatter a few lemon or orange slices on the bottom.
Season salmon generously with salt and pepper and whisk together the olive oil, zest and juice of 1 lemon and white wine and pour about half of it on top of the salmon.
Toss together all your freshly chopped herbs and scatter them on top of the salmon filets, gently pressing down lightly so the herbs stick to the fish. Then pour the rest of the olive oil mixture on top and around the salmon.
Bake the citrus herb crusted salmon at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10-12 minutes. Keep an eye on it because thicker salmon may take a bit longer and thinner filets, less time.
Serve salmon with the poaching sauce and spoon over your favorite side dish.
You can make this in either a cast iron or sheet pan. A smaller vessel such as a cast iron will yield more sauce and create a poaching environment for the salmon.
You can also do the same on a sheet pan, which will make the citrus herb salmon a bit more crisper on the edges but still tender in the middle.
The citrus herb salmon recipe can also be done on the stove top. Instead of roasting, place on stove top with a cover on the pan.
Ingredients can be easily modified or omitted. For instance, you can leave out the wine and use other types of citrus, such as cara cara oranges and grapefruit.
