Steamed Baked Salmon Recipe

This is a very easy and nutritious way to cook salmon. You can serve the salmon with your meal of choice.


(Serves 4)

4 (5 ounces each) salmon fillets
2 teaspoons olive oil plus 2 Tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
4 Tablespoons water


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the salmon pieces into a large bowl. Drizzle on 2 teaspoons of olive oil and the salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice, oregano and thyme.

Cut 4 pieces of aluminum foil, each one big enough to form a packet that can hold a piece of salmon.

Divide the oil/lemon mixture onto the bottoms of each piece of aluminum foil and place a piece of salmon on top, drizzle any remaining oil on top of each.

Put one tablespoon of water into each packet.

Wrap each fish to form a sealed packet.

Place packets into a baking dish and place into the preheated oven.

Bake until cooked through, about 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and transfer the salmon, leaving any skin behind onto a serving dish and serve with your meal of choice.
