  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Put two large squares of aluminum foil onto a large, flat work surface.
  2. Make a bed of lemon slices in the center of each foil square; top with red onion. Lay a salmon fillet atop each pile of lemon slices and onion; season with basil, dill, and sea salt. Fold edges of the aluminum foil over the salmon and seal completely.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 25 minutes.
  4. Remove salmon from foil pouch, place on plate, and drizzle juices from foil pouch over the fish.

Love this recipe only I didn't have any dill so I use fresh basil instead. Very lovely.

It is a simple and tasty recipe flavors were ok so I add more sea salt and black pepper, squeeze 1 lemon and bake it with lemon pieces too> turn out great

Easy, diet friendly, and very, very good. Love this salmon recipe.

I never changed a thing but I should have.

I will make it changes

Followed the recipe and added a lime peel seasoning that I found online. (for fish) The combination of the dill, red onion and lemon add just the right taste! Delicious and will make this agai...

I didn't use onion, but the rest of the recipe was very good and very easy. Not even much cleanup. This one goes in my current recipe file.

We quite liked it. I didn't have red onion so used a shallot. I didn't have fresh basil or dill so used basil pesto and dried dill. I cooked it in a covered corningware casserole.

Good. I used wild caught Alaska Sockeye Salmon, and 25 minutes was not enough; it took 50 minutes for the fish too cook. It was good when it was done, though!
