Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Combine water and lemon juice in a bowl.
  2. Arrange the 16 smaller pieces of butter in 2 rows on a baking dish and top with garlic slices. Place salmon fillets over each row of butter and garlic.
  3. Melt remaining sliced butter in a bowl with minced garlic, about 40 seconds. Spoon about half the melted butter-garlic mixture over salmon and top with lemon slices. Pour about half the lemon juice mixture into the baking dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Baste fillets with juices in the baking dish, then pour remaining butter and lemon juice over the fish. Continue baking until salmon is easily flaked with a fork, about 10 minutes more.

Basically this is a poached salmon---yummy as a main dish, but I bet it's even better cooled on a salad. I used all the ingredients but in smaller proportions. I skinned the bottom of my salmon so that the butter/garlic on the bottom of the dish could seep into the salmon from that side. I thought that the amount of water/lemon juice may have been a little too much because I didn't even use all of that. I will try it again without even using the water but just the butter, garlic, and lemon juice. I was afraid of the high heat with my dish, so I did only cook it at 425 but a little longer. I kept thinking of capers with this, but then that's a whole different dish! This was very good, so thanks, Jim M!
