Slow Roasted Salmon

This is, in very minor ways, adapted from Michael Schlow’s wonderful cookbook, It’s About Time, and is by far the best, and easiest, way to cook salmon I have ever found.

Ingredients:  

4 6 oz. salmon filters with the skin removed

2 T. extra virgin olive oil

1 1/3 t. unsalted butter

salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil (to make clean up easier).
  3. Place the salmon filets, spaced evenly apart, on the baking sheet.
  4. Drizzle the olive oil over the filets and rub to ensure they are evenly coated.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Roast for 15-18 minutes for medium rare and 21 to 24 minutes if you prefer medium.
  7. Place each filet on a plate and top with 1/4 of the butter.  You can sprinkle with optional hersb, such as dill, as well.

I am an enthusiastic home cook. I started a blog when my older daughter lived in Paris and had a tiny kitchen, few utensils and a stove with no temperature markings. The purpose was to help her (and eventually her sister) make many of the dishes they love and to learn how to make some new ones. They are now both terrific cooks, but all of us can use a new (or even an old beloved) recipe once in a while.
