Baked Salmon in Foil


  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 2 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice, or more to taste
  • 5 cloves cloves garlic, minced or pressed through a garlic press
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • aluminum foil
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 (3 pound) salmon fillet
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1lemon, sliced
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).


  • Step 2

    Combine 1/2 cup olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, brown sugar, oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper in a bowl.

  • Step 3

    Place a large piece of aluminum foil on a baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Place salmon in the middle of the foil, skin-side down. Drizzle with olive oil mixture. Fold up the edges of the foil over the salmon to create a packet, making sure to seal the edges.

  • Step 4

    Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes. If your salmon fillet is very thick, it can take longer. Garnish with fresh parsley and lemon slices.
