Salmon is a delicious and colorfully fleshed fish full of heart healthy omega fats. Anytime you serve salmon it seems like a special occasion. This may be because it tends to be one of the pricier proteins around, but I fear it’s because too many people are too intimidated to cook it. If you find salmon is on sale at a store near you then stock up! It freezes wonderfully well and is a lot easier to cook than you might think. In fact by cooking it with all of the seasonings wrapped up with the fish in little tin foil pouches, you can have a delicious, healthy, flavorful meal fit for a restaurant at home in less than 20 minutes!
1 pound salmon, preferable wild caught cut into two pieces
2 tablespoons butter, sliced thin
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lemon, sliced thinly
2 sprigs dill
1/2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Get two large squares of tin foil and place the salmon on top. Divide the remaining ingredients in half and top on each piece of salmon. Wrap up tightly in foil.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the salmon is a pale pink color. Remove from the oven and plate the salmon, reserving the juices that come out. Serve the salmon with the reserved dressing on the side immediately. This goes great with some brown rice and a light side salad.
