  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 3 tbsp Kveik yeast
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon slices (for garnish)

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
