  • 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.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 25 minutes.

  • Remove salmon from foil pouch, place on plate, and drizzle juices from foil pouch over the fish.

Cook's Note:

Do not poke holes in foil pouch, even when checking salmon for doneness.

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! Read More

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. Read More
