Don't be afraid to bake salmon in parchment. It's a great method for keeping your expensive fish from drying out if it's a minute or two too long in the oven. The hardest thing to do is to judge when it's done, due to the variations in size of filets. Mine were a little more than 1 inch thick in the largest part, and alas, 20 minutes was a tad too long. They were still edible, and we enjoyed the combination of flavors. Thanks for the idea!
Simple, moist and delicious - perfect for any diet!
Wow, simple and delicious.
Wow! Just when I was despairing that my salmon filet would spoil in the fridge, or that the luscious fresh basil I brought back from my Mom's lat weekend would get thrown away (as usual) because I kept it too long, I stumbled upon this amazing recipe.
The only modifications I made were length of cooking time (20 minutes, based on other reviews), no pepper (allergy), and lemon zest instead of lemon juice (allergy). Oh yeah, and I sprinkled a tiny bit of garlic powder on it. Freshly minced garlic would probably be even better.
Easy and great for salmon lovers. I'm still learning how to not parchment bake fish too long.
So Good! We loved it, and I eat lots of salmon. It has such a good flavor, I also added sliced lemon to the table. I think next time I make it, I'll add a little garlic.
I would have never thought of using parchment paper.
Easy, delicious, and my family loved it!
the taste is very gentle and mild..the fish is very moist…the challenge the timing..i started at 20 then added another 12 minutes…first 5 then 7..my piece was just over 8 ounces….my husband gave it an A will cook it again next week for his birthday…served it with salad and saffron rice..yummmy
