Sage and Thyme Salmon

    30 minutes

    Sage lends a delicate and unexpected taste and scent to this dish. I tend to cook the salmon in the oven but barbecuing works nicely as well.

    • 1 teaspoon dried sage
    • 1 tablespoon dried thyme

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Spray one side of a sheet of aluminium foil large enough to fold over all the salmon with cooking spray.
    2. Arrange salmon on the prepared side of the foil. Sprinkle with sage, thyme, paprika and pepper. Fold foil over salmon to enclose.
    3. Bake salmon 20 minutes in the preheated oven or until easily flaked with a fork.

    I am giving this recipe a 5 star even though I changed it. Both my children liked the salmon and that makes my life easier!! When I began the prep. I realized I was out of sage so I just used what I had: thyme, paprika, and lemon pepper. I had cayenne but omitted due to the little ones. Then I added garlic, some ginger and a bit of dill. Cooked the salmon with virgin olive oil in a skillet and towards the end of the process I threw in some sherry and put a lid on and simmered for about 5-10 minutes. I did not add any salt. Results: My 3 year old had thirds, and my 5 year old had seconds.  -  05 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Really good recipe. I made this twice in one week since it was simple and elegant. I served this to company. I used olive on the bottom instead of spray. I added fresh garlic and rock salt to the herb mix. This is a keep.  -  13 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
