Easy Baked Salmon

Time has not been on my side lately and dinners are suffering. Plus, it is a little too cold and dark to motivate myself to stand at the grill right now. Which led me to try my first baked, foil-wrapped salmon dish for dinner this week.

I thawed three frozen filets (last month I bought a huge piece at Costco and froze individual portions) so that I’d have one leftover for lunch. In a small bowl I combined the following:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 diced garlic cloves
  • 1 diced shallot
  • Heaping handful of cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

To prepare, set each fillet in the start of a foil packet on a baking sheet. Season the fillets with salt and pepper before spooning on the oil mixture. Add a thinly sliced lemon if you like the citrus flavor. Close the foil packet tightly and bake for 20 – 25 minutes at 400 degrees.

Voila! Dinner is served. I suggest pairing with whole wheat rolls (I am a huge Alexia fan) and plenty of roasted root vegetables.

How do you adapt summer staples for winter cooking?
