Salmon Fillets with Herbs

27 Apr

Ingredients:  A dinner for Two

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme, ground
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill, ground
  • cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup parsley, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced

Preheat oven to 400 and using a casserole baking dish lay foil over the bottom of it overlapping the sides lengthwise. Then lay another piece over the bottom overlapping the sides the other way.

Lay the salmon fillets on the foil, top with the ground dried thyme and dill. Sprinkle with some cracked black pepper then top with the minced parsley and garlic. Add the sliced green onions atop of that and finally lay the sliced lemons on top of everything. Loosely fold the sides of the foil into the middle of the pan creating somewhat of a cooking pouch. This method is what allows your oven to steam cook the fish. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or 10 minutes per every inch of depth in the fish fillet. The salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork.

Suggestions: Try drizzling a dill sauce over the steamed salmon, yummy! If you don’t prefer salmon try this cooking method with Trout, Bass, Catfish…basically any kind of fish fillet you enjoy….and don’t forget the Dill Sauce, you can find my recipe under sauces.
