  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill - see note 1
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano - see note 1
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 fresh salmon fillets - see note 2
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Mix the extra virgin olive together with the black pepper, the chopped fresh dill, and fresh oregano together in a non-metallic bowl. Stir well then add in the zest and juice of the lemon.
  • Place the salmon fillets into the marinade and turn them to coat. Set them aside in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 3 hours.
  • Once the salmon has marinated, place a heavy paced frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat and allow it to get hot.
  • Season the salmon fillets with the salt and then place the salmon presentation side down into the pan.
  • Cook undisturbed for 3 minutes. Carefully flip the salmon and cook for a further 3 minutes.


  1. You can use dried herbs in place of the fresh, just use 2 teaspoons of each instead.
  2. We prefer this dish with skin off salmon fillets because the marinade stops the skin from crisping up and soggy fish skin is gross!
