Roasted turkey not your thing? Surprise your Thanksgiving table with our recipe for slow-roasted salmon instead.
Not only is this dish beyond simple to prepare, but it will also take you a fraction of the time compared to preparing a traditional holiday turkey or ham.
All you need is lemon, garlic, dill, and butter — yes, it's really that straightforward. Compared to cooking the salmon in 12-15 minutes, you'll set your oven to a lower temperature and allow the fish to delicately roast for half an hour, allowing it to become a desirable level of warm and juicy.
Depending on how many people you plan on cooking for, consider ordering one of our fresh salmon. The Oshen's Twelve is perfect for larger groups, while the One Night Stand is ideal for solo couples.
As for sides, this recipe is adaptable enough to pair nicely with just about anything — from cranberry torte to savory green beans.

Pre-heat oven to 275 degrees.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice lemon and place pieces along the bottom of the baking dish. Place salmon on top and pat dry.

Coat salmon with mixture. Sprinkle remaining dill and garlic on top. Then add a pinch of salt and pepper throughout.
Cover salmon with a layer of parchment paper.
Place in oven and roast for 30 minutes.
