This is one of the most requested dinners in my house. My youngest son LOVES fish and inhales this every time I make it.  And I love that he loves it!  As a growing teenager salmon is such a great food for him to eat-pure protein! And when I make this he rarely eats a second dinner of cheerios because he is so full from the first dinner.

Roasted Salmon in Foil is one of the EASIEST dinners you can make.  I timed myself and it took 18 min from start to finish! I serve it with steamed green beans or asparagus or rice.

Let me know your thoughts!!!

Garlic Butter Roasted Salmon in Foil

One of the quickest and healthiest dinners you can make for your family!  Dinner will be on the table in 20 minutes.

Servings 4


  • 4 6-8oz salmon fillets, skin off
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh dill, chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 slices of lemon


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. Make sure the foil piece is big enough to fold over and seal the fish. 

  2. Wash and pat dry salmon fillets.  Season with salt and pepper on both sides. 

  3. In a small bowl, combine lemon juice, garlic cloves, melted butter, parsley and dill. 

  4. Arrange salmon fillets on top of foil on baking sheet. Pour lemon mixture over fish. Place a slice of lemon on each piece of fish. Fold the sides of foil over the fish sealing so none of the sauce leaks out. 

  5. Bake in oven for 15-17 minutes or until flaky. Serve immediately!
