Lemon, Butter & Caper Salmon

Lemon, Butter & Caper Salmon

This meal can literally be on the table from start to finish in 15 minutes with very little clean up. I almost feel silly sharing it but I figured that people can always use another easy weeknight dinner idea. The lemon, butter, capers, and thyme create an instant sauce that makes the fish taste so, so delicious. Enjoy!


  • 1 salmon fillet (1/2 pound per person)
  • 3-4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped capers
  • 1 lemon, cut into thin slices
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the salmon in a baking dish. Dot the top with the butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add the lemon slices, herbs, and capers…THAT’S IT!
  2. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the fish flakes with a fork.
