Easy Lemon Garlic Salmon Recipe: This Buttery Salmon In Foil Recipe Is Delish Oven Baked or Grilled

You may recall that my friend Tabitha is an awesome cook: she shared her green chile rice casserole recipe with us (so good!). I recently learned that her daughter, Megan, is also a whiz in the kitchen.

Tabitha shared Megan's recipe for a simple yet scrumptious lemon garlic butter salmon that she makes in foil packets. Not only does the foil make the salmon extra moist, it also makes cleanup a cinch. 

As an alternative to regular tin foil, Tabitha says Reynolds "makes these super cool foil bags; you just fold the ends over and make a packet. This is great for grilling and while camping!"

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 to 25 minutes
Total Time: 20 to 30 minutes
Servings: 2 to 4


Here's how to make it:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place the salmon filet in a good size square of aluminum foil that you then fold over and crimp, making a little dome (or use a Reynolds foil bag).
  2. Squeeze the lemon over the salmon until it is covered in lemon juice. Sprinkle salmon with the garlic salt, to taste. Put a couple pats of butter on top.
  3. Bake for 15 to 25 minutes, depending on level of done-ness you prefer. Be careful when opening the packet!
