Salmon Baked in Foil
Once again, I know it's been a while! I've been cooking previously posted recipes lately but this one is new for once! It's super easy and one that you can just throw in the oven and walk away (for a bit anyways). The salmon comes out super moist and the seasoning turned out well I thought. I used fresh salmon (because that's the only way I roll). Give it a go - this is a pretty easy weeknight dinner! Enjoy! Ingredients: 2 salmon fillets (mine were 6 oz. each) 2 garlic cloves, minced 5 tb olive oil 1 tsp italian seasoning (I used salt-free) 1 tb lemon juice 1-2 tb fresh mint, diced (I didn't measure) dash of salt dash of pepper aluminum foil
Directions: Mix together the garlic, olive oil, italian seasoning, lemon juice and mint. Season the salmon fillets with a dash of salt and pepper. Place the salmon, skin side down, in a glass dish and pour the marinade over the salmon. Cover as well as possible. Place in the refrigerator for an hour (or as close to that as possible). Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove the salmon from the refrigerator and place each one in the middle of a square of aluminum foil. You want to be able to seal the foil on all edges, so make sure the sheet is big enough. Spoon whatever marinade is left over the fish and seal around all edges. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for approximately 20 minutes. The salmon will be cooked through at this point, but remains very moist. If you'd prefer it cooked a bit under, reduce the cooking time by a few minutes.
