Lemon Butter Salmon

Lemon Butter Salmon Recipe at: stephanie-spring.comLemon Butter Salmon Recipe at: stephanie-spring.comI don’t know when my love for salmon started but once it did, there was no going back. It has easily become one of my favorite dishes and can be combined with so many different ingredients. Salmon with avocado salsa is definitely one of my go-to recipes but it is neck and neck with the lemon-butter salmon. It is extremely easy and equally as healthy. The lemon and butter combination creates the perfect sauce that has the salmon melting in your mouth and makes you want to go back for seconds. I love pairing it with asparagus or any green vegetable for a side. So simple. So good. See for yourself! Lemon Butter Salmon Recipe at: stephanie-spring.com


  • 2 pounds salmon
  • 4 Tbsp butter (cut)
  • 2 lemons (sliced)
  • Salt and pepper (optional)

What to do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a deep dish baking pan with foil. Place lemons on the bottom of the pan in the shape of the salmon. Place salmon on top of the lemons. Place butter slices on top of salmon. Season with salt and pepper (optional). Fold the foil around the salmon to hold in the butter and lemon juice as it cooks. Cook for about 35-45 minutes or until the top is getting white and the inside is tender.
