Baked salmon covered with lemon, garlic, and fresh parsley.
When it comes to quick and easy meals, salmon is a go-to dish. When it’s baked right, this healthy dish is rich, flaky and creamy. Lemon Herb Crusted Salmon takes only 20 minutes to prepare and it is oh so tasty. With a mix of parsley, garlic, lemon and paprika, this dish is so packed with flavours. Each bite bursts with creamy lemon and herb flavours. Yum!
You don’t need to add any oil to make this fish. When salmon is baked right – at a high heat for a short time – it has enough of its own natural oils to stay rich, creamy and delicious. After about 10 minutes in the oven, Lemon Herb Crusted Salmon should appear opaque and begin to flake easily with a fork. If you prefer a fillet that’s a little more well done, pop it back in the oven for another minute or two. For a fillet that’s on the rarer side, check it after 9 minutes. Either way, within no time, dinner is served!
At first bite, Lemon Herb Crusted Salmon has a wonderful lemony flavour with delicate undertones of fresh herbs and garlic. Lemon is such a wonderful pairing for fish. It adds flavour, moisture and it perfectly complements the naturally creamy fillet. The fresh herbs and garlic enhance the overall flavour, creating a real crowd-pleasing dish.
