    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 600 g salmon
    • 2⁄3 teaspoon sea salt
    • ground black pepper
    • 125 g butter
    • 2⁄3 lemon


    Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

    Step 2

    Grease a large baking dish with olive oil. Place the salmon, with the skin-side down, in the prepared baking dish. Generously season with salt and pepper.

    Step 3

    Slice the lemon thinly and place on top of the salmon. Cover with half of the butter in thin slices.

    Step 4

    Bake on middle rack for about 20–30 minutes, or until the salmon is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

    Step 5

    Heat the rest of the butter in a small sauce pan until it starts to bubble. Remove from heat and let cool a little. Gently add some lemon juice.

    Step 6

    Serve the fish with the lemon butter and a side dish of your choice. See below for suggestions.
