  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Combine 1/2 cup olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, brown sugar, oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
  3. Place a large piece of aluminum foil on a baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Place salmon in the middle of the foil, skin-side down. Drizzle with olive oil mixture. Fold up the edges of the foil over the salmon to create a packet, making sure to seal the edges.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 20 minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley and lemon slices.

I think I ate most of this out of the 3 in my family. SOOOO good. will make again hopefully.

Made it a first time; Didn't have enough fresh garlic so also added garlic powder.

salmon came out wonderfully!

No changes came out great

This had good flavor. Are used fresh time because I had it on hand. Also I opened up the foil and bake for another 10 minutes because I wanted it to be a little drier than it was.

Forgot to set the timer, but I believe the marinade coupled with the foil made a HUGE difference! First time my salmon came out so moist!

Hubby and son enjoyed it. I cut down the cooking time since I had a few smaller fillets I was using. They both said the would like it again.
