This makes for a very tasty salmon dish. It was not too over-powering like a lot of salmon recipes I have tried. I found this on a fishing website. I only had one fillet so I cut each ingredient in half and it was perfect. I also took the fish out of the foil packet near the end of the cooking time and just kept it in the oven to crisp up a bit (just my preference). Prep time includes the 1 hour of marinating.


  1. In a medium glass dish, prepare marinade by mixing garlic, olive oil, basil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and parsley.
  2. Place salmon fillets into the dish and cover with marinade.
  3. Marinate in the fridge for about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  5. Place fillets in aluminum foil; cover with marinade and seal.
  6. Place sealed salmon into a baking dish and bake for 35-45 minutes until easily flaked with a fork.

This recipe does result in moist, flavorful salmon. I did cut back quite a bit on the salt. I used the specified amount of olive oil and felt that it could easily have been cut in half. Will try it again that way. Thank you for a good dinner.

Great flavour....I omitted the salt and replaced the parsley with cilantro...Opening the foil is a good idea so the fish isn't soggy. Great recipe,Thanx
