This salmon is bursting with flavor and very tender. It's easy to make and clean up, and the capers add an extra zing! Be careful when opening foil, as the steam is hot!

Loved this recipe. I doubled it but still cooked in foil. Next time I make 4 servings (or more) I will instead use a baking dish covered in foil. It took less than 1/2 hour to cook. Read More

Delicious and FULL of flavour! We used very fresh salmon which made the recipe that much more perfect. Definitely include some capers if you have them for a boost of flavour. Read More

I made this recipe tonight for my bf and I. It was great! the marinade had just the right amount of lemon flavor and was not overpowering. the fish was moist flakey and flavorful. the capers were a great addition. next time i make i am going to add artichoke hearts and minus the peppers just to change it up. Recipe will be a new favorite for salmon. Thank you! Read More

Delicious! I used a not-so-great quality of salmon and it was still delicious probably due to the marinating. I had some leftover and ate it the next day and it was still tasty and moist. I will definitely make this again I'm already craving it and I've had it twice this week! Read More

Thank you for a great recipe. I fixed this tonight. Left out the peppers because I don't much care for cooked bell peppers and used tilapia instead of salmon. Other than the above changes and adding salt and pepper I followed the recipe. My husband said that it was "out of the park awesome". Again. Thanks for a great and really easy recipe. Read More
