Directions:

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.


NOTE:

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.
