Garlic-Herb Baked Salmon in Foil

A simple recipe for baked salmon in foil that yields perfectly tender, flaky salmon coated with delicious garlic-herb sauce. 


  • 4 4oz salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 lemon, zested & juiced (more for garnish)
  • 45 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley*


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F (200C). Place a sheet of aluminum foil on the baking sheet. Place the salmon fillets in the middle of the baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the melted butter, lemon zest and juice, garlic cloves, salt, pepper, and parsley.
  3. Spread mixture over the tops of the salmon. Close foil into itself to create a packet and bake, in the preheated oven, for 12-15 minutes (time will vary based on the thickness of your salmon).
  4. Remove from the oven, and poke with a fork to check for soft, flaky, salmon.
  5. Serve with lemon wedges.
