Slow Roasted Citrus Salmon


This Slow Roasted Citrus Salmon is not just for fancy dinner parties but ideal for family dinners too. Most children can be quite picky when it comes to fish and seafood and I believe this recipe breaks all misconceptions.

Salmon fillets cooked in olive oil with lemons, blood oranges, tangerines, sprigs of thyme, parsley leaves and fennel fronds. The taste is flavorsome and scrumptious.

I'm usually not a salmon fan because most times the salmon would just turn out really flakey. But this easy to cook salmon meal definitely holds a place in my heart absolutely delicious!

Robyn Bluebird

This is hands down the best salmon recipe I've ever made, I'm excited to share it with my grandkids the next time they swing by the house!

Celia Strommen

Make sure you keep the lemon slices in this recipe, otherwise the salmon may turn out a bit dry. Other than that this is a perfect meal for any occasion, it's fairly easy to make and the preparation time is short! :)

Lindsey Lincks

I love this recipe a lot, the citrus and salmon blend really brings out the taste for me, I'll be making this again for sure.

Bryn Harris

Now normally I don't eat any type of seafood because I hate the taste of fish, but my mother in-law cooked this for dinner and I just HAD to ask for the recipe! This is one of the best meals I've had in a long time and it's seafood! I'm officially a fan now thanks to this home cooked meal, will be making it for my wife's birthday. Thanks for sharing! :)

Brenda Cristantiello

Loved this so much!! I cooked it for me and my boyfriend and the recipe is amazing! It's really zesty due to the lemon which makes it all the better!, I'd recommend cooking this any day!!

Ariyah Santago

So far one of the best roasted salmon recipes I've come accross, I recommend squeezing a bit of the lemon juice on the top to give it a stronger taste, but other than that I really love this meal. If you're looking for something easy to make at home this is definitely it!

Arely Baab

I adore this meal! it really starts a party in your mouth! will make this again for sure!

Whitney Oalmann

I wasn't a fan of having to thinly cut all those tangerine and lemon slices, it takes a bit too much time to prepare in my opinion.Though the citrus salmon doesn't disappoint I prefer the Chef John's salmon cake recipe over it, still tasty though :)

Maryam Tennesen

This is my favorite way to cook salmon so far! I love how easy it is to make and it takes little to no time to cook, thanks for sharing! :)

Coraline Allrich

Usually salmon is really salty and hard to perfect without the right ingredients, this meal has just that! It came out perfectly moist and balanced in flavour. I cooked this for my family and all of them loved how tangy it was, the tangerine and lemon really make a difference! Thanks so much for sharing, i'll be cooking this again soon!! :)

Myra Jourdain

My kids HATE any seafood I put out on the table, but this slow roasted salmon recipe seems to be an exception since they devoured it without complaint!! :) I'll be making this for easter again this year for the whole family.

Abril Pringnitz

Juicy, flavourful and easy to make! What more can you ask for in a recipe? I love this roasted salmon dish!!

Malaya Loperena

I thought for sure the lemon and tangerine would be too much for the salmon and that it would turn out too strong, but boy was I wrong! this is an AMAZING salmon dish! I love the taste and the refreshing feeling I get from each bite! thanks for sharing.


It's ideal for Easter dinner!
