  • 1.5 pounds salmon fillet
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1/2 lemon juice only
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter diced


  • Prep: Preheat oven to 400°Place a large piece of aluminum foil in a large rimmed baking dish that will comfortably hold all of your salmon (the baking dish is to catch any drippings – way easier to clean than your oven!).
  • Season fish: Lightly grease the foil with olive oil. Place the salmon fillets on top (they can be close together if using individual fillets, just not on top of each other). Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and evenly scatter garlic on top. Drizzle with lemon juice and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Dot with butter. Seal foil over salmon.
  • Bake: Bake for 10-15 minutes (depending on the thickness of your filletor until salmon flakes easily. Serve immediately.
