Baked Salmon with Coriander and Thyme

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

This really simple dish is delicious because coriander complements the flavor of salmon so well. The salmon cooks in its own juices. Thanks to for the recipe


  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Line a baking dish with parchment paper or foil, large enough to fold over and seal.
  3. Place the fillets in the middle off the dish and sprinkle with coriander and thyme.
  4. Grind a little sea salt over the fillets.
  5. Place one or two lemon slices on each fillet.
  6. The lemon peel can be a bit strong; if you wish, you can remove the peel with a paring knife before putting the slices on the fillets.
  7. Fold the parchment paper over the fillets and staple or paper clip, or fold the foil and crimp to seal.
  8. Bake for about 18 minutes.
  9. When salmon is done remove to a plate.
  10. Place a fresh slice of lemon on each fillet and a sprig of fresh thyme, and serve.
  11. Variations: Add some shrimp and scallops in with the salmon.
  12. Anoint the salmon with a tablespoon of dry white wine or dry vermouth prior to adding the seasonings.

Very easy and fast. Low in fat but full of flavor. I made it with a bit of white wine and shrimp and it was a hit!

I am afraid to leave a rating on this, for I do not like to give "lower" ones (under 4!)-- I made this tonight for dinner and I was very excited that it would be easy to prepare, and fast to cook. Well, it didn't have very much flavor- perhaps I cooked it too long? Or maybe the seasonings were old? I didn't taste any lemon...Or, maybe it just wasn't the right day for salmon! I hope to make this again soon-- but until then, I would give it a 3 and 1/2. Thanks!
