Slow Roasted Salmon with Herbed Everything Cream Cheese and Bagels


  • 1 (3-3 ½ lb) Atlantic salmon side
  • Kosher salt
  • Bunch of fresh dill
  • 3 lemons, 2 thinly sliced, 1 cut into wedges and reserved for serving

Preheat oven to 275°F. Line a large sheet pan with parchment. Place salmon skin side-down on pan and season with salt. Cover with fresh sprigs of dill and lemon slices and drizzle with olive oil. Bake about 40 minutes, or until salmon is opaque and cooked through. Remove salmon from oven and let cool. Once cool, cover pan with foil and place in refrigerator overnight.

When ready to serve the next morning, discard dill and lemon slices. Transfer salmon to a large platter and break into pieces for serving. Sprinkle with a bit of salt, top with fresh dill and squeeze with lemon wedges. Serve family-style with accoutrements below.

Our Favorite Way To Serve It Up

Our whole sides of Atlantic salmon are perfect for feeding a crowd. One of our favorite things to do is slow roast it with lemon and fresh dill, then chill overnight. Slow roasting yields incredibly moist, tender fish. Then in the morning, you can easily prepare a delicious bagel spread with all the fixings, fit for a crowd. Pro-tip: Got any salmon leftover? Add to salads or pasta for an easy lunch or dinner!
