I’m not one to use foil for oven cooking, but I’ve gotta say this dish may have converted me.  Even better, clean up was a snap.  We did a quick saute of some garlic kale and we had a super easy and incredibly healthy dinner!

Ingredients
  1. 4 (5 ounces each) salmon fillets
  2. 2 teaspoons olive oil plus 2 tablespoons
  3. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  4. 6-8 roma tomatoes, chopped, or 1 (14-ounce) can chopped tomatoes, drained
  5. 2 chopped shallots
  6. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  7. 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  8. 1 teaspoon dried thyme
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Sprinkle salmon with 2 teaspoons olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix the tomatoes, shallots, 2 tablespoons of oil, lemon juice, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
  3. Place a salmon fillet, oiled skin 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 for all salmon fillets.
  4. Bake until the salmon is just cooked through, about 25 minutes. Using a large metal spatula, transfer the foil packets to plates and serve.

  • I love salmon done in foil or parchment – while there’s no browning, it just always seems to have such a wonderful flavor – and no clean up! I’ll be pinning this~
