Easy Baked Salmon

Updated: Feb 16, 2020

My new favorite -easy- way of making a large piece of salmon is by baking it in foil. It is more of a process than a recipe, but I thought I'd share. It is a healthy way to make salmon, doesn't take long, doesn't require a lot of prep, and is perfect for salads the next day!

Flavor combinations can include...

  • Stone ground mustard, capers and onion (pictured)

  • Lemon and Dill

  • Rosemary, garlic and lemon

  • Garlic Butter

  • Pesto

  • Teriyaki


1 to 1.5 lb piece of salmon, skin on or off

Pinch of salt

Pinch of pepper

Drizzle of canola or olive oil

Flavoring combination that you desire

Nonstick spray

Tools needed: foil, a sheet tray


Preheat the oven at 375F.

Line a tray with foil, with extra to cover the top of the fish too. Spray the inside of the foil with nonstick spray.

Lay onion, or rosemary stems depending on flavors desired, down on the inside of the foil and then lay your fish down on top of it. Season with salt, pepper, and remaining flavoring ingredients before drizzling with oil.

Seal the package to create a mostly air-tight pouch for your fish to cook in.

Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on how thick your fish is, until it just flakes. Keep sealed to finish the cooking within the pouch. If you prefer more of a 'crust' on the outside, broil the top of your fish for 2-3 minutes until just golden.
