Ready In:




  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F / 220 degrees Celsius.
  • Rinse salmon fillet under cold running water and pat dry.
  • Cut a piece of foil long and wide enough to encase the salmon when folded over the center and folded up on the ends.
  • Position the foil on a large baking sheet and place the salmon in the center of the foil, skin side down.
  • Sprinkle the salmon with the salt, pepper, and rosemary. Place the lemon slices over the fish fillet along with the sliced onion and garlic slivers. Drizzle the fillet evenly with the olive oil.
  • Fold the edges of the foil up over the salmon and crimp to seal. Fold the edges together on both ends to create an airtight package.
  • Bake the salmon for 15 minutes, or until just cooked through but still moist. Serve immediately, using a large metal spatula to portion fish. Serve some of the accumulated juices spooned over the fish.

    Very nice! I enjoyed the lemony flavor and the rosemary was quite nice too! Thanks gert! Made for PRMR.

    Oh this is good. All of the flavors work so well together, and the salmon is very moist. I cut this in half for 3 6 oz fillets, and it worked very well - although I just lightly sprinkled the fillets with the salt and pepper instead of measuring, and I'm sure I used less. I look forward to making this again, thanks for posting!

    TXOLDHAM, The salmon was sooooooooo YUMMY! I saw Emeril do this on TV and had wanted to try it. It was so easy to pull together. I used salmon steaks and seasoned with a rosemary garlic blend. I also did them on the grill. The salmon was soooo moist and full of flavor. I will do this recipe again.

    I pared this recipe down to one serving, using a salmon fillet. True to gertc96's description, it is easy and quick to put together, along with delicious! I loved the look of the fillet with the slices of lemon, onion and garlic on top,gives it a gourmet look and the clean up was a breeze! Thanks gertc96!


I am 30 years old and I love to cook for my family of four.... I am married with two wonderful children.... That is them in the picture above.... It's a little old though.... Wesley will be five in June and Katelyn will be eight in June.... I'm always looking for new things to cook and try out on all of my family.... I'm also a teacher to 17 wonderful 3 yr. olds.... I'm always looking for quick, easy, and wonderful tasting food to fix that my whole family will enjoy... My husband is a picky meat and potatoes man.... SO, any time I fix something new that he likes, is amazing.... Wesley is like his daddy and loves to eat meat and potatoes, but he's also real good about trying other foods.... Katelyn, will eat whatever she can get her hands on.... Katelyn has some special needs and we have to watch what she eats and how she eats.... You can check out her website by clicking our link.... For fun, I enjoy sewing, scrap booking, reading, and spending time with my kids.
