1/1 Photo of Salmon Baked in Foil
Another winner from Giada and Everyday Italian. I recently got hooked on the whole foil cooking method for fish and have been scouring the internet to add more of these to my arsenal of delicious, moist and super tasty fish recipes. Here's a true winner! Super healthy, super moist, super delicious. We love it. Even my 2 and 4 year old. I HIGHLY recommend you use fresh tomatoes in this recipe rather than the optional canned. MUCH better flavor. NOTE: I USE THIN FILLETS AND WOULD ONLY COOK ABOUT 15 MINUTES IF USING THIN FILLETS.

- 1Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- 2Sprinkle salmon with 2 teaspoons olive oil, salt, and pepper. Stir the tomatoes, shallots, 2 tablespoons of oil, lemon juice, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper in a medium bowl to blend.
- 3Place a salmon fillet, oiled side down, atop a sheet of foil. Wrap the ends of the foil to form a spiral shape. Spoon the tomato mixture over the salmon. Fold the sides of the foil over the fish and tomato mixture, covering completely; seal the packets closed. Place the foil packet on a heavy large baking sheet. Repeat until all of the salmon have been individually wrapped in foil and placed on the baking sheet. Bake until the salmon is just cooked through, about 25 minutes. Using a large metal spatula, transfer the foil packets to plates and serve.
