Lemon Salmon Foil Packets

4 servings


20 minutes

total time


2 Salmon filets ; thawed

1 whole lemon

4 slices Butter ; about 1 tblsp each

4 cloves Garlic ; minced and crushed

Salt and pepper


1.Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

2.Lay out two pieces of heavy duty foil (About 12-18 inches long)

3.Slice lemon into thin rounds. (Optional: Save the ends for zesting!)

4.Lay six lemon slices into the middle of each piece of foil. (You'll have two rows of three. You'll want to overlap them a bit so it will be roughly the size of your salmon filet.)

5.Lay your salmon filets on top of each bed of lemon slices.

6.Divide the minced garlic evenly and sprinkle it over each filet.

7.Place two slices of butter onto each filet, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.

8.If you saved your lemon ends, zest them over the salmon.

9.Wrap foil tightly around salmon by taking to opposite ends of the foil and bringing them together over the salmon. Fold the edges down a few times, creating a seal. Take the two remaining ends, twist them, and bend them upward.

10.Place salmon packets on a baking sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes
