Preheat oven to 400° F (200° C)

Remove stems from dill and mint, then chop.

Clean and pat dry salmon, place in cooking dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the juice and a little salt and pepper to taste.

Mix remaining lemon juice, honey, mint and dill into Crème Fraiche. Spread over salmon and tuck lemon slices into sauce - part in, part out.

Cook salmon for 17-20 minutes, depending on oven and fillet thickness. Check after 15 minutes, when salmon flakes, it's done. Do not overcook.

Serve with, or over, pasta.


If each person is getting indivudual portions, use separate cooking dishes if possible. Reduce cooking time by 2-3 minutes (depending on oven) when doing so. Do make sure to check at 15 minutes to see if done; more lightly cooked salmon is better than overcooked.
