- 4 salmon fillets
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 slices bacon, diced
- 3 ounces butter
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried tarragon
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Directions See How It's Made
- Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
- Butter (or spray with non-stick spray) one side of a large sheet of aluminum foil (double the size needed to hold the salmon fillets in one layer); place in a baking dish (butter side up) large enough to hold the salmon (again, in one layer).
- Fry the finely chopped onion in butter in a frypan until soft and golden but not brown.
- Add the bacon and tarragon and cook for another two minutes.
- Stir in the lemon juice and remove from heat.
- Place the salmon fillets on the foil in the baking dish.
- Cover each fillet with some of the onion/bacon mixture and drizzle any pan juices over as well.
- Fold the foil over the fish and seal to make a parcel.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
- May be served with a dollops of thick cream or creme fraiche (but I personally don't think it needs it!).
