  • Summary

    Roasting salmon low and slow in one large piece means just cooked, perfectly medium-rare salmon every time. In a pinch, this recipe would work with pre-portioned salmon fillets, but make sure they are at least an inch thick, and decrease the cooking time by about 5 to 8 minutes. The lemon dressing here is tangy, floral and, yes, a little bitter (as the whole lemon is involved, pith and all). If that’s not your preferred flavor profile, feel free to only use the zest and juice. wrap in parchment bake at 200 degrees

    Ingredients

    • 2 lemons, seeds removed, peel, pith and fruit finely chopped
    • 1 small shallot or garlic clove, finely chopped
    • 3 oregano, marjoram or thyme sprigs, leaves stripped and chopped
    • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for drizzling
    • 1 1/2 pounds skin-on salmon fillet (skinless is fine in a pinch)
    • 1 head butter or Little Gem lettuce, torn into large pieces
    • 2 Persian cucumbers or radishes, or both, sliced, for serving
