Slow Cooked Salmon
Super easy
Fairly cheap

The most tender salmon you will ever eat - no knife required! There are a few tricks on this one - first, do not cover the salmon! Second - put your lemon rings on the bottom - never on the top...putting them on the top will give you acid rings.

For 1 Serving(s)


1 salmon filet
1 sliced lemon
1 bunch thyme
1 TBSP rub
1 teaspoon lemon zest

Slow Cooked Salmon Directions

  1. Score the bottom of the skin with a few diagonal cuts with a sharp knife.
  2. Season top and bottom of the fish with the rub of your choice (I use Something to Cry About from BT Leighs (discount code on the Foodie Family  page on this website) and some lemon zest - the zest gives you lemon flavor without the acid.
  3. Slice 3-4 thick lemon rings and put some clean thyme on top of them. Lay your salmon on top of the rings so the skin is on the thyme and lemon, and the meat side is up.
  4. Put in a pan lined with foil or parchment paper in a preheated 250 degree oven UNCOVERED for 30-45 minutes (depending on the thickness of the salmon) until it reaches your desired temperature.
  5. 30 minutes gives you a more rare salmon and 45 minutes will give you more of a well done salmon
    It will still look uncooked but I promise you its not - you will never cook salmon another  way!
