Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 2 pounds salmon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Set the oven temperature to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk melted butter, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, dill, salt and pepper.
  3. Place salmon on top of the foil on the baking sheet. Fold up all four sides of the foil. Drizzle butter mixture over salmon, lay lemon slices on top (if desired) and seal the foil closed.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes and remove from oven. Salmon is fully cooked when it flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with dill, if desired. Serve immediately.
