Salmon in Foil Packet
Thinly sliced lemon
1 Chopped shallots
2 tsp Chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp Chopped fennel
1/2 Chopped fresh dill
Preheat oven to 450°. Also heat up a dry skillet.
Pull out 2 pieces of foil about 14 inches long. Brush one side with olive oil or melted butter.
This will help prevent sticking.
Place salmon fillets on one side of the foil. Brush with olive oil or melted butter. Season with Kosher salt and freshly ground white pepper.
Spoon the chopped shallots, fennel, parsley and dill across the top, and top with a slice of lemon.
Now fold the other side of the foil over loosely, and bring the edges together without pressing the foil down over the contents.
Crimp the edges by folding them over.
Now here comes the additional step hardly anyone uses: Set the parcel on hot skillet and let it get hot for about 1–2 min.
Now transfer the parcel to oven, directly onto the center rack.
Bake for 6–8 min. Cooking time will depend on the size of the fillet. Another nice thing about this method is that the fish will stay nice and warm even after take out of the oven.
When ready to serve, open up the packet and serve with the accompanying juices.
