Ten-Minute Tin Foil Salmon
Recipe type: Entree
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2 (adults or hungry toddlers)
  • 2 4oz servings wild salmon
  • 2-4 lemon slices, very thin (depending on how puckery you like your fish)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 10-inch sheet aluminum foil like Reynolds Wrap
  • several sprigs fresh thyme
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place both salmon filets on a large sheet of aluminum foil. Generously season (topside only) w salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and top each filet with 1-2 thin slices of lemon and 2-3 sprigs of fresh thyme.
  3. Gather the foil into a “pocket” or “purse” shape. Make sure not to create a tight package but, instead, a small change purse shape that will allow steam to form and help cook the fish.
  4. Lower the temperature to 425 degrees and place aluminum foil salmon in the oven. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until desired doneness (I kind of like mine restaurant-style, medium rare)
  5. Serve with our Roasted Fennel w Olives, Chile and Lemon Zest or with one of our Tot Pastas (recipe coming on Wednesday).
