Baked Salmon In Foil
The recipe can be used for whatever size fillet you wish. I found that a 1 1/2 pound fillet was big enough for four adults.
When serving you can dress it up with a sauce or just plain mayonnaise.
How to Make Baked Salmon In Foil
- Lay a piece of silver foil, large enough to wrap the salmon in a very loose parcel, on a baking tray.
- If the salmon is to be served hot, grease the foil with the butter, or use the oil if serving the salmon cold. You could also use a baking spray.
- Thinly slice the lemon and put about half on the foil.
- Put the salmon on top, with a few slices of lemon inside and lay the rest of the lemon along the top of the salmon.
- Season generously and wrap loosely, making sure the edges are securely folded together so that no steam can escape.
- Put into a 350 degree oven, for 10 minutes per pound. I prefer to use an instant-read thermometer - 158 degrees F.
- If serving hot, take it out of the oven and let it stand for a further 10 minutes.
- If serving cold, leave the salmon in the foil for two to three hours.
- To serve: Unwrap the fish and gently pull off the skin.
