Herby Whole Salmon

This recipe is so simple and so versatile. You can use any herbs you have on hand and make 1 piece of salmon if by yourself or a whole side of salmon to feed a crowd. Fresh herbs are filled with vitamins and a great way to add freshness to any meal.

Turning the oven down and slow roasting ensures that the natural fats in the salmon melt slowly into the flesh for a moist and juicy end result.

We kept it real simple, but you can add lemon and/or garlic to the herb mix for an added POP of flavor.
