It was a fun day of chocolate, but it did drain me of my energy. So for dinner tonight I wanted something flavorful, healthy and quick. (In fact, we almost resorted to White Castle!) Nonetheless, I baked up some salmon in a foil packet along with broccoli and a baked potato. Here’s my recipe for Lemon Dill Salmon:
1 whole salmon fillet
1/2 lemon, sliced thin
1/2 teaspoon dried or fresh dill
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Lay a piece of foil on your baking sheet.
Place your salmon on the foil and season with salt & pepper to taste.
Sprinkle the minced garlic and fresh/dried dill over the salmon.
Lay the lemon slices over the salmon.
Take up the sides of the foil to form a packet or pouch for the salmon to bake in.
Bake wrapped salmon for 15-20 minutes or until done (depending on thickness). I served the salmon with steamed broccoli florets and a baked potato topped with butter & sour cream on the side.
