    lazyme's Note:

    When it comes to salmon, I think that simple preparation is best. This is a simple way that we used to cook fresh caught salmon either on the grill or in the oven.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 1/2 lbs whole salmon
    • 1 lemon
    • salt and pepper
    • 1 tablespoon oil or 1 tablespoon softened butter
    • 1 onion, sliced (optional)


    1. 1
      Lay a piece of silver foil, large enough to wrap the salmon in a very loose parcel, on a baking tray.
    2. 2
      If the salmon is to be served hot, grease the foil with the butter, or use the oil if serving the salmon cold.
    3. 3
      Thinly slice the lemon and put about half on the foil.
    4. 4
      Put the salmon on top, with a few slices of lemon inside with onions, if using, and lay the rest of the lemon along the top of the salmon.
    5. 5
      Season generously and wrap loosely, making sure the edges are securely folded together so that no steam can escape.
    6. 6
      Put into a medium oven, 450F (180C), for 10 minutes per pound.
    7. 7
      If serving hot, take it out of the oven and let it stand for a further 10 minutes.
    8. 8
      If serving cold, leave the salmon in the foil for two to three hours.
    9. 9
      To serve: Unwrap the fish and gently pull off the skin.
