Seasoned salmon baked in foil


I have an incredibly long list of reasons why I love cooking. But, I can’t share all of them with you today because it would take forever.
However, I will tell you the two most important things; 1. For me, I think of cooking as occupational therapy for my right arm. Why you might ask??? because it has little muscle tone and since cooking requires using both hands, it challenges and forces, me to use my right hand a lot! 2. It’s not only an enjoyable hobby, but I also have found it an excellent learning experience. As I am still gradually improving my cooking skills. Haha! 😀

Today to better improve my skill of cooking fish I prepared my third salmon recipe and I wanted to share it with you. This foil packed dinner is fantastic!

And the marinade that this salmon bakes in tells all…

garlic

parmesan

butter

herb…. need I say more?

If you have not tried salmon cooked in foil you need to stop what you are doing and make it for dinner tonight!

Baked Parmesan Garlic Herb Salmon in foil

Ingredients

1½ lb salmon (I use fillets)
3 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
Three cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp Grated Parmesan Cheese
½ tsp Italian Seasoning
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

1. While the oven is heating up, get a sheet of wax paper and put it on your kitchen counter. Next, rinse the salmon with cold water then pat dry fish with paper towels. Slice salmon into portions and set aside. Next, cut a few sheets of aluminum foil, about 12-inches long or large enough to fold up the individual salmon inside. Then spray each sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a small saucepan over medium heat melt the butter. Remove from heat. In a small bowl add lemon juice, garlic, parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined.

3. Place the salmon skin-side down on the foil. Brush with the garlic butter marinade. Sprinkle the fresh parsley on top. Fold up the edges of the foil and wrap and seal the salmon inside.

4. Place in the oven and bake for 13-15 minutes or until the salmon is firm. Unwrap the top of the salmon and broil the top for 2-3 minutes watching closely so that it doesn’t burn. Remove from the oven and garnish with additional chopped parsley and sprinkle with additional parmesan if desired.
