Simple foil baked salmon that is as healthy as you make it.

  • 1 Unknown (0)
  • 4 salmon, fresh, wild-caught
  • dill weed, fresh, organic to taste
  • 2 tsp. garlic, fresh, organic
  • 4 tsp. butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured
  • 1 seasoning or spices of your liking
  • 1 lemon, fresh, organic

Preheat oven to 450. I use the frozen salmon from Costco which is convenient because each individually frozen filet is 6 - 8 oz, so you can use two frozen pieces to make your four filets. Place the thawed piece of salmon on a piece of foil (large enough to wrap up around the fish and form a foil pouch with the top and ends sealed). Use a 1/2 tsp of the chopped garlic on each piece; spread it around to cover. (I'm a huge garlic fan so generally use more). Sprinkle to your taste with either dried or fresh dill, and also with Fish Seasoning (found in the spice aisle.) I put about 1 tsp of butter on top of each one, then wrap the foil around the fish, leaving enough room for the fish to steam inside. (Loose packets that are sealed tightly at top and ends.) Bake on a cooking sheet/pan for 20 - 25 minutes or until nice and flaky. Remove from pouches - careful! Hot steam! and put pieces on a separate plate. Squeez lemon wedges over the top. Some times I add pine nuts to the top at this point as well.

Voila! Super easy and the clean up is great... throw away the foil and you're done!
