DIRECTIONS

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