  • 4 smoked fillets (salmon, trout, or your preferred fish)

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a small bowl, combine the chopped parsley, dill, thyme, minced garlic, olive oil, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Mix well to form a fragrant herb paste.
  3. Pat the smoked fillets dry with a paper towel and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Season both sides of each fillet with salt and pepper.
  4. Evenly spread the herb mixture over the top of each fillet, pressing gently to ensure it adheres well.
  5. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the fillets are cooked through and the herb crust is golden and fragrant.
