This was a last minute post which I didn’t spend as much time on as other posts on this blog – hence the Diet Coke can in the background ;) I didn’t anticipate the traffic this post has generated through Pinterest and I’ve received a lot of questions regarding the temperature I cooked this salmon at. Like all recipes on my blog, this was only a suggestion because it worked for me. A few people have suggested raising the temperature or cooking it longer and have shared their experiences in the comment section below.
Lay out a large piece of tin foil. Slice a lemon and lay flat on surface. Lay salmon on top of the lemons. Add butter, salt and pepper then wrap up the sides and fold tightly together, like a pouch. Place on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 30 minutes at 325° or 350° depending on how hot your oven runs.
Tilapia in a Bag is another great recipe to try if you enjoyed this method of cooking.
