Baked Salmon In Foil

Elaine Douglas


This is a very easy way to prepare salmon. The leftover salmon can be used in salads, sandwiches or any recipe that uses cooked salmon.
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.

3 lb
chunk of salmon or fillets
"just a pinch" of salt
"just a pinch" of pepper
1 Tbsp


1Lay a piece of silver foil, large enough to wrap the salmon in a very loose parcel, on a baking tray.
2If 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.
3Thinly slice the lemon and put about half on the foil.
4Put the salmon on top, with a few slices of lemon inside and lay the rest of the lemon along the top of the salmon.
5Season generously and wrap loosely, making sure the edges are securely folded together so that no steam can escape.
6Put into a 350 degree oven, for 10 minutes per pound. I prefer to use an instant-read thermometer - 158 degrees F.
7If serving hot, take it out of the oven and let it stand for a further 10 minutes.
8If serving cold, leave the salmon in the foil for two to three hours.
9To serve: Unwrap the fish and gently pull off the skin.
