  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh dill or parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare sheets of aluminum foil, each large enough to wrap a salmon fillet and lemon slices.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, minced garlic, dried dill, dried oregano, salt, and pepper to create the seasoning mixture.
  4. Place a salmon fillet on each sheet of foil. Brush both sides of the fillet with the seasoning mixture.
  5. Layer a few slices of lemon over each salmon fillet, allowing the citrusy aroma to infuse the fish.
  6. Carefully fold the foil around the salmon and lemon slices, creating a secure packet.
  7. Place the foil packets on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  8. Once baked, carefully open the foil packets, allowing the aromatic steam to escape.
  9. Garnish the Baked Seasoned Salmon with Wrapped in Foil with fresh dill or parsley for a burst of color and freshness.
  10. Serve the salmon directly from the foil packets to preserve the flavors and aromas.


1. Can I use other types of citrus fruit instead of lemons?

Absolutely! If you want to experiment with different citrus flavors, you can use orange slices, lime slices, or a combination of citrus fruits. Each option will lend its unique aroma and taste to the dish.

2. Can I add vegetables to the foil packets?

Definitely! Feel free to enhance the dish by adding vegetables like asparagus, zucchini, or cherry tomatoes to the foil packets. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time if needed to ensure all the ingredients are cooked to perfection.


This dish is a celebration of contrasts—tender salmon fillets enveloped in the bright and zesty embrace of lemon slices. With every bite, you'll experience a burst of citrusy freshness that complements the richness of the salmon. The best part? It's not just the taste that's impressive; the presentation of the foil packets adds a touch of elegance to your dining table.
