Salmon Baked in Foil Packets

Posted by in Dinner, Seafood

This is one easy and fool proof way of cooking salmon fillets. Clean up is a breeze too since there are no pans to scour or scrub.

Pre-heat your oven to 400F.

Take a heavy duty foil and place some lemon slices in the middle, then place your salmon fillet on top. Season fish with salt and pepper and then add 2 tbsp of butter on it. Sprinkle generously with chopped dill, I added a lot since I love dill. Then pull the sides of the foil together and do a double fold to seal all edges. Repeat with all remaining pieces of your salmon fillet. Place your packets in a baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes. Note: you can add vegetables like asparagus, green beans, snap peas etc to the side of your fillet before sealing it.

To serve, Gently remove salmon from packets (remember steam can burn) and place on top of quinoa salad. I just mixed arugula, sliced persian cucumber, avocado and 1/2 cup cooked quinoa tossed with 1 tbsp. each olive oil and lemon juice.
