DIRECTIONS

  • 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!).
