Are you a salmon lover? Well then this week’s recipe is for you! Foil baked salmon is a great week night staple that you can change up each week with what you have in the pantry. This recipe features yummy tomatoes, shallots and lemon paired with herbs you most likely have in your kitchen.

Perfectly served with blanched vegetables or on top of a salad.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 (5 ounces each) salmon fillets
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil plus 2 tablespoons
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tomatoes, chopped, or 1 (14-ounce) can chopped tomatoes, drained
  • 2 chopped shallots
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Sprinkle salmon with 2 teaspoons olive oil, salt, and pepper. Stir the tomatoes, shallots, 2 tablespoons of oil, lemon juice, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper in a medium bowl to blend.
  3. Place a salmon fillet, oiled side down, atop a sheet of foil. Wrap the ends of the foil to form a spiral shape.
  4. Spoon the tomato mixture over the salmon.
  5. Fold the sides of the foil over the fish and tomato mixture, covering completely; seal the packets closed.
  6. Place the foil packet on a heavy large baking sheet. Repeat until all of the salmon have been individually wrapped in foil and placed on the baking sheet.
  7. Bake until the salmon is just cooked through, about 25 minutes. Using a large metal spatula, transfer the foil packets to plates and serve.
