Rustic Herb Crusted Salmon

Hey everyone…

Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes using one of my favorite Tastefully Simple spices. I love salmon and we have many spices and sauces that lend a great flavor to salmon but I have to say our Rustic Herb is my favorite. The blend of rosemary and thyme in Rustic Herb is wonderful on this delicious fish.


I use this spice on salmon, chicken or turkey, and on smashed potatoes. It’s versatility is amazing!

Let’s start by preheating your oven to 450. Take a baking dish and put 2 Tbs of butter and olive oil in the pan and pot it in the oven. You want this dish hot when you put the salmon in.


Now onto the fish.


I lay them on a cutting board, skin side down and season them liberally with Rustic Herb.


Place in the baking dish and cook for 5 – 6 minutes.


Flip the salmon and remove the skin. Easily done after cooking for a few minutes. Pulls right off with a fork.


Once skin is removed, apply Rustic Herb once again and bake for 5 – 6 more minutes. Now, traditionally speaking, with this thickness of salmon, 4 minutes on each side would be sufficient to a true salmon lover but my family likes it a little more on the crispy side. Hence, the 5 – 6 minutes a side.

Remove from the oven and plate up.


Whether you like your salmon crispy or a little more on the medium side, you will love this flavor combo.

I hope you all enjoy!
