Lemon Salmon Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 350° or grill with medium low fire.
  • Oil pieces of aluminum foil large enough to place salmon fillet on and fold up the sides to create a pouch.
  • Place salmon on foil, skin side down.
  • Drizzle remaining olive oil over top of fillets.
  • Arrange lemon slices, onion slices, bay leaf and peppercorns on and around the fish, even underneath if you like.
  • Drizzle with cream.
  • Bring long edges of foil up and over the top of the fish along with the sides, roll or fold down, leaving space for steam to escape at the top.
  • Make sure the ends are sealed so juices don't leak.
  • Place directly on oven rack or grill.
  • Bake or grill salmon until it flakes with a fork (40-45 minutes) or longer if fillets are thicker.
  • To serve, remove bay leaf and garnish with lemon quarters and chopped parsley.
