Lemon-Baked Salmon

Day 24 – Dinner

This is a family recipe taught to me over 20 years ago by my dear ole brother, Chef Christopher. We were barbecuing at our old Riverdale-home and this simple recipe resulted in a wondrously tasty, salmon fillet. (And no-mess afterwards!)

  • One salmon fillet (or whole salmon – should you be adventurous & near BC)
  • Lemon – wash & cut into 1 cm thick slices
  • one onion – peeled & cut into 1 cm rings
  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil

Lay the salmon on top of a piece of foil large enough to wrap around the entire salmon. Slide the slices of lemon beneath the salmon fillet so the salmon is raised up from the foil. Pile the onion rings on the top surface of the salmon. Finally drizzle the olive oil over the entire fish. Seal up the foil leaving space for the fish to steam. Place on a baking tray or pan and bake @200F for 35 minutes.

Be careful when opening as it will be steamy! The onions are soft and carmelly; the lemon has infused into the salmon. It is lovely and light.
