I have a friend and she cooks salmon for her husband every day , literally every single day. He does not get bored of eating salmon! Foil cooking is easy and no mess in the kitchen! I love foil cooking!
Baked Salmon in Foil
Why hello there, may I impress you with my fancy-looking Baked Salmon in Foil? Whether you need a fast, healthy dinner, a meal to wow the crowd, or a simple protein that you can enjoy tonight and eat leftover the next day, this is THE baked salmon recipe for you!
If you’ve been intimidated by cooking fish in the past, I totally get it! I spent years avoiding buying salmon because I thought it would be too complicated to make, or that worse yet, I’d mess it up and ruin a beautiful piece of fish.
All of that changed after I discovered this easy foil-baking method.
This easy baked salmon takes less time to prep (five minutes) than I spent sleepily scrolling through Instagram this morning while brushing my teeth (much more than five minutes).
It’s only five ingredients.
You can make it with one hand, sip your wine with the other, and pet your dog/kids/loving-but-needy significant other at the same time.
Best of all: baked salmon in foil tastes INCREDIBLE.
It feels fancy. It looks fancy. It eats fancy.
Nothing about cooking it is fancy.
Be impressed with yourself anyway!
This baked salmon was the very first salmon I learned to cook with confidence. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve made it since.
It’s become the base of countless easy, delectable salmon recipes like Spicy Baked Salmon and Grilled Salmon in Foil, and it is still a meal I make often, both when I’m cooking for two (Ben and myself) or for a crowd.
