Basic Salmon Packet (Baked)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

I found this on a website but cannot remember where. This is the only way we make salmon now--it always turns out perfect. I've put it in the lactose-free category because the pat of butter can easily be skipped over.


  1. Lay out a square of foil for each fillet.
  2. Place 2-3 slices of lemon in a line in the center of each piece of foil.
  3. Rinse fillets and place on top of lemon slices.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper (I prefer to use garlic salt with parsley).
  5. Add a small pat of butter or two on each fillet.
  6. Fold up sides of foil to create closed packet, leave some airspace inside for steam.
  7. Place on baking sheet and bake at 350* for 20 minutes.

I love this. It's easy to assemble the packets, is really delicious, and easy to clean up. I like to serve it with broccoli and maybe some heated french bread with butter.
