Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ lb. salmon filet, skinned
  • 5 cups cold water
  • 1 cup salt
  • 2 tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp. chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp. chopped thyme

  • Large bowl
  • Small bowl
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper

 

 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

2. Divide the salmon filet into 4 equal pieces. Add the water and salt to a large bowl and add the salmon, allowing it to brine and lock in its flavor. Let sit for 10 minutes.

3. Mix the herbs and lemon peel in a small bowl. Cut the butter in with the herbs until the herbs are evenly distributed throughout the butter.

4. Remove the salmon from the salt water, rinse and dry well. Place the salmon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, skin side down.

5. Spread the butter-herb mixture over the top of the salmon. Bake for 8 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through.
