Lemon Butter Salmon Recipe: This Easy Garlic Salmon Wrapped In Foil Is Delicious Oven Baked or Grilled

My daughter, Megan, is a whiz in the kitchen, and I love making her delicious dishes. Her recipe for a simple yet scrumptious lemon garlic butter salmon that she makes in foil packets is one of my favorites. Not only does the foil make the salmon extra moist, it also makes cleanup a cinch. 

As an alternative to regular tin foil, Reynolds makes super cool foil bags. You just fold the ends over and make a packet. This is great for grilling and while camping. Enjoy Megan's simple seafood dinner recipe!

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!
