Easy and delicious lemon-butter salmon fillets. This is an old recipe I changed up a bit and doubled in order to feed a large group or family.

  • Place butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high in 30-second increments until melted, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

  • Mix lemon juice, salt, and pepper into the melted butter; pour over the salmon.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, 12 to 18 minutes.

Cook's Note:

I use wild salmon fillets that are approximately 1/2-inch thick. You can use 1 large 2-pound salmon fillet cut into 8 servings pieces if preferred.
