Citrus-Herbed Baked Salmon
This is one of the most flavorful and moist salmon recipes I have ever tasted.
- Serves: 2 persons
- 4lemons, sliced 1/4-inch thick
- 1large red onion, sliced
- 2(8 ounce) salmon fillets
- 2tablespoons chopped fresh basil
- 2tablespoons chopped fresh dill
- ½teaspoon sea salt
Step 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Put two large squares of aluminum foil onto a large, flat work surface.
Step 2Make a bed of lemon slices in the center of each foil square; top with red onion. Lay a salmon fillet atop each pile of lemon slices and onion; season with basil, dill, and sea salt. Fold edges of the aluminum foil over the salmon and seal completely.
Step 3Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 25 minutes.
Step 4Remove salmon from foil pouch, place on plate, and drizzle juices from foil pouch over the fish.
