This simple, yet delicious salmon recipe will have you in & out of your kitchen within a half an hour! I don’t know about you, but I most certainly despise being in the kitchen for an extended period of time. On the other hand, I love delicious food. As such, a recipe that balances those two desires will have my heart – this is one of them!

Variations, Recipe Tips and Notes

Garlic Lover Unite – If you’re not a garlic fan, I suggest you reduce the about of garlic. However, if you’re a garlic lover, like myself – pile it on! Just ensure you use enough butter to allow the garlic to caramelize/soften to perfection!

Easy Clean-Up – You want to ensure your aluminum foil has no holes, if you don’t have the strong/thick kind, I suggest double wrapping. This will ensure the easiest clean-up ever!

How long to Cook Salmon in Foil – It all depends on the size and thickness of your salmon fillet. If your fillet is very thick, 16 – 18 minutes in the oven at 375ºF might do. If it’s a thinner piece, 12-13 minutes will usually do. Ultimately, I reccommend cooking until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.


There are really very limited ways in which you can go south (aka, mess up) this recipe – it’s real easy. Just ensure you season your salmon well, use fresh garlic, and add in some butter.

This super quick salmon recipe gives you all the garlicky, buttery, tasty vibes! It's perfect for a weekday meal where you want gourmet taste in the comfort of your home or, on the weekend because hey - let's eat good everyday!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound (453g) Fresh Salmon
  • 2-3 Cloves Garlic
  • 3 tbsp Butter or Ghee
  • ½ Green Seasoning (click here for recipe)
  • ½ tsp Old Bay Seasoning you can also use Fish Seasoning
  • ½ tsp Salt or to taste
  • ¼ tsp Black Pepper
  • Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice a slight squeeze will do
  • If you don't have green seasoning - add these additional ingredients:
  • 1tsp Parsley
  • ¼ tsp Cayenne Pepper

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line an oven safe dish or baking sheet with foil - ensure the piece of foil is large enough to fold over and seal the salmon, creating a packet.

2

Pat dry your salmon. Add a slight squeeze of lemon to your salmon, and season with green seasoning ( alternatively parsley and cayenne pepper), Old Bay, salt, and black pepper.

3

Using a garlic press, crush garlic and add half to the bottom of the prepared dish/sheet. Add butter/ghee.

4

Place salmon on top of garlic butter, and fold the sides of the foil over the salmon. Ensure the packet is well sealed so the sauce does not leak.

5

Place the dish/sheet into the oven, and bake until cooked, 12-16min. Cooking time depends on the thickness of the fillet - check notes section.

6

Open foil packet, and broil salmon for 2-3 minutes. Stay close, be careful not to burn your fish!

Notes

a. When the salmon flakes easily with a fork, it's ready. You can also use an instant read thermometer - a minimum internal temperature of 145°F, indicates doneness. This should be measured at the thickest part of the fillet.
