Butter and Garlic Soaked Salmon

Do you ever find that when you eat healthy you feel unsatisfied at the end of the meal? You just don’t feel like what you ate did the trick. Why is that? Maybe you’re bored with the plain options you’ve been choosing. What you need is a good helping of butter and garlic-soaked salmon! Salmon has such a pleasing flavor that it can leave almost anyone feeling satisfied after a meal.

Salmon is said to be one of the world’s healthiest foods! It is packed with important nutrients like Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, selenium, protein, niacin, thiamine, potassium, folate, biotin and more. Salmon is also popular for its high omega-3 fatty acid content.

What about the butter? Anything soaked in butter probably isn’t the healthiest way to cook, but because salmon is basically a super food we decided to let the butter slide. Feel free to use as much butter as you feel comfortable with. This simple recipe will make you smile either way!

Butter and Garlic Soaked Salmon Recipe

Serving size 4-6 

  • A large filet of Wild Alaskan Salmon (cut or full)
  • A drizzle of olive oil
  • 10 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ¾ cup salted butter, melted
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 lemon slices, thin
  • 3 tbsp. fresh dill
  • A few cherry tomatoes and/or capers for extra flavor

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. You may need a few layers of foil. Note that you will be covering the entire salmon with foil, like a cave. Drizzle some olive oil at the bottom of the foil. Set the salmon in the middle of the sheet. Mix the butter and garlic together. Pour it on top of the salmon. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on top of the salmon. Take the lemon slices and squeeze a tiny bit of juice out on the top of the filet. Then place them along the side of the salmon. Sprinkle the fresh dill on top. Spread a few cherry tomatoes and capers around the entire fish. Cover the salmon with aluminum foil completely. Bake for about 10-15 minutes until the salmon flakes easily. Let cool and enjoy!

We hope you enjoy this delicious fish!
