  • 2.5 pound salmon filet skin on
  • 4 tablespoons butter softened
  • 3 tablespoons Nature Nate's honey
  • 1 lemon, zest of and juice of 1/2 the lemon
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For serving

  • Flaky sea salt
  • Lemon wedges


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with tinfoil or parchment paper.
  • Combine softened butter, honey, lemon zest, lemon juice, parsley, rosemary, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Blot the salmon dry with paper towels.
  • Place the salmon onto the baking sheet, skin side down. Spread the butter mixture overtop the salmon filet and bake for 15-18 minutes until the salmon is cooked to your preference. We like to broil the fish for the last few minutes to form a bit of a crust on top, but this is optional. Cook time will vary depending on thickness of the salmon filet, oven variation and preferred doneness.
  • Remove salmon from oven and sprinkle with flaky sea salt. Either keep salmon on the baking sheet or transfer carefully to a serving platter. Serve with lemon wedges.
