Baking fish fillets in foil gives them a moist, tender texture. Steamed rice is an ideal accompaniment either way. When making this. I often prepare an extra fillet to have cold with lunch the next day. You will need a toaster oven to prepare this.
Variation: Maple Lemon Salmon
Before wrapping salmon, drizzle with 2 tsp (10 mL) maple syrup.
Lemon Garlic Salmon from a Toaster Oven
- Arrange spinach and garlic on two sheets of foil, dividing evenly. Top each with a salmon fillet. Sprinkle with dill, if using, and salt. Drizzle with olive oil and top each with 2 lemon slices. Fold in foil edges and ends to seal. Place packages seam side up on oven pan.
- Bake in preheated 400 °F (200 °С) toaster oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until fish is opaque and flakes easily when tested with a fork (peek in one package to check). Remove from oven and let stand for 2 minutes. Open packages and drain off juices.
