Lemon Salmon

Published Thursday, 27 October, 2011 by Sarah

stupidly easy salmon



  • Salmon fillet (these can be bought frozen in bags/trays - but need to be defrosted first! - or fresh from the fishcounter)
  • 1 Lemon
  • Butter or Oil
  • Baking Paper (it might work with foil, but I haven't tried that yet!)


Preheat the oven to about 180'C.

Cut the baking paper so you have a piece big enough to wrap your salmon up in.

Brush the baking paper with melted butter or oil on one side.

Cut the lemon into slices.

Place the salmon on the baking paper, and the arrange the lemon slices on top of it and underneath it. Try and cover it all for maximum lemoniness!

Wrap the salmon and lemon up in the baking paper.

Place on a tray in the oven for around 18-20 minutes.

Unwrap and enjoy!

(I like this with potato wedges, but it goes with rice, pasta, chips etc...)
