A nice way to serve salmon in warm weather. No heavy sauce.....just a light, fresh herb taste. I often make these in foil on the grill.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly spray a 13" x 9" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange salmon fillets in a single layer skin side down.
  2. Evenly sprinkle salmon fillets with salt, then sugar.
  3. Combine lemon and lime juices together and pour evenly over salmon.
  4. Evenly sprinkle with herbs and minced garlic.
  5. Cover and chill about 4 hours.
  6. Before baking, drizzle with the melted butter; if desired.
  7. Bake at 425 for about 20 minutes or until opaque in middles.

This is a delicious way to cook salmon! I made foil packets for each fillet and cooked these on the grill. I didn't leave them to chill for 4 hours, only about 1. These would be terrific for dinner guests as you could prepare the packets ahead and then just grill when you are ready. I also used the same seasonings with one chicken breast for my non fish eating son. I served with skewered grilled new potatoes and some sauteed spinach. Delicious! Thanks!

How can you go wrong with salmon and herbs - excellent recipe! Like Pat, I used lemon thyme, too, which goes so well with salmon. Thanks for posting this winner!
