Fresh Herb Crusted Salmon

I was watching Barefoot Contessa on Saturday morning and Ina did this awesome salmon recipe.  I had just bought two fresh filets of salmon the day before so I was chomping at the bit to try this. All these herbs are growing in my yard/garden so it was really easy.


1 salmon filet
salt and pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
2 T lemon juice
1/2 cup mined chives
1/2 cup minced dill
1/2 cup minced parsley


I used the grill but you could use the oven set at 425 degrees.  Season salmon with salt and pepper liberally. Combine olive oil and lemon juice and drizzle over salmon.  Let it set at room temperature for a least 15 minutes.  Combine fresh herbs and scatter over the salmon.  I let this set in covered in the refrigerator for about 8 hours.  I think it really marinated the salmon and removed  that fishy flavor it can sometimes have.

Cook salmon for 10 to 15 minutes until firm.

This dish was husband approved and pretty delish if you ask me. Hope you enjoy!
