Salmon, fresh herbs and lemons

So I quit my job!
And what have I been up to lately? Baking and cooking of course!

On my first day of unemployed life, I woke up early in the morning and went to Sultan to grab a fresh salmon fillet. Look how beautiful it looks!

I wanted to bake the salmon with fresh herbs and lemons.

What you need:

  • 1 salmon fillet
  • half a bunch (the bunch you get from the supermarket) of mint leaves, dill and parsley, chopped
  • 4 lemons
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Preheat an oven to 220 degrees Celcius.
Get a large baking tray and line with wet newspapers or sandwich paper, then line it with parchment paper. Place the salmon fillet on the parchment paper, add the chopped herbs, drizzle olive oil and squeeze 4 lemons and throw them in. Generously season with salt and pepper.

Add another layer of parchment paper on top of the salmon and then again another layer of wet newspaper or sandwich paper.
Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and leave to steam for another 15 minutes. Transfer carefully to your favorite serving plate and enjoy!

Suggestion: Serve with a potato dill salad with sour cream dressing.
To make: Boil potatoes and cool. Cut into cubes and season with salt and pepper. Mix  one tub of sour cream (250 ml) with some olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. Dress the potatoes and serve with the salmon.
