Servings 4 people


  • 4 6-8 oz salmon
  • 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 8 slices of lemon
  • 1 tbsp. dried parsley flakes crush with your fingers to release the oils
  • 2 tbsp. chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp. canola or vegetable oil
  • 8 sprigs of dill
  • 4 sheets of aluminum foil


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Take sheets of aluminum foil, about 8 inches wide. Brush a little oil on center of foil and place a piece of salmon on top.
  2. Mix together the salt, pepper, garlic, and parsley. Sprinkle seasonings on top of salmon. Put 2 lemon slices and 2 sprigs of dill on top of each piece of fish. Drizzle with oil. Bring foil around fish, making a tight seal. The pouches can now be put on a large baking sheet. Put into oven for 17 minutes.
  3. Carefully open the pouches as some steam will be released. This will be extremely hot so be careful. Serve immediately.
