Equipment

  • Oven
  • Large Baking Sheet
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Bowl
  • Whisk

Ingredients
  

  • 3 pounds salmon fillet
  • 6 tablespoons ghee or butter melted
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon parsley minced optional for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with foil, extra long to wrap the salmon later on. Spray the foil with avocado oil cooking spray.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the ghee, garlic, rosemary, and thyme. Pat the salmon dry and sprinkle all over on both sides with sea salt and black pepper.
  • Pour the ghee mixture over the salmon to evenly coat, rubbing the ghee on the skin underneath too to coat (it will crisp up a little this way). Sprinkle the lemon juice over the top of the salmon.
  • Wrap the salmon with the foil, using extra to cover the top. Bake near the bottom of the preheated oven for about 18-20 minutes or until just cooked through (exact cook time with depend on thickness*)
  • Unwrap the salmon so the top is completely exposed and switch the oven to “broil”. Place the unwrapped salmon under the broiler for about 3-4 minutes, watching it to prevent burning, until the top is browned to preference.
  • Remove from the oven, sprinkle with minced parsley and serve immediately.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids which support heart and brain health!
