  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Put two large squares of aluminum foil onto a large, flat work surface.
  2. Make a bed of lemon slices in the center of each foil square; top with red onion. Lay a salmon fillet atop each pile of lemon slices and onion; season with basil, dill, and sea salt. Fold edges of the aluminum foil over the salmon and seal completely.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 25 minutes.
  4. Remove salmon from foil pouch, place on plate, and drizzle juices from foil pouch over the fish.

Love this recipe only I didn't have any dill so I use fresh basil instead. Very lovely.

Good. I used wild caught Alaska Sockeye Salmon, and 25 minutes was not enough; it took 50 minutes for the fish too cook. It was good when it was done, though!
