  • 4 Salmon Fillets (5 ounces/150g each)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 Lemon
  • Butter
  • 4 tsp Cream Cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C.
  • Cut the lemon in half. Cut one half into slices and set aside.
  • Place the fillets skin side down onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Season them with salt and pepper and squeeze some lemon juice over.
  • Top each fillet with 2 thin slices of butter, a teaspoon of cream cheese and a slice of lemon.
  • Transfer the tray into the oven and bake at 400°F/200°C for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Serve with a side dish of your choice.


  1. The amount of salt and pepper you use is entirely up to you. I used about ½ teaspoon for all 4 fillets and a generous sprinkle of black pepper.
  2. Real butter should not be substituted with any margarine.
  3. The cooking time might vary slightly. This will depend on the size of your fillets and your oven. The fillets are ready when the meat falls apart easily.
