2-3 6-ounce salmon fillets 1 pound (227 g) vegetables, asparagus, green beans, grape tomatoes, and sliced bell pepper (mix and match) Salt and pepper, to taste 4 tablespoon s (56 g) unsalted butter 1 tablespoon (8 g) garlic, finely diced 1 teaspoon (1 g) fresh thyme, chopped 1 teaspoon (1 g) fresh oregano, chopped 2 tablespoons (8 g) parsley, chopped ½ teaspoon (1 g) paprika lemon juice, from ½ lemon or more to taste 2-3 tablespoons (30-45 ml) chicken stock
Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Cut 2-3 sheets of heavy-duty foil paper about 14 by 12-inch, it doesn’t have to be precise - enough to hold the salmon and vegetables. Place the foil paper on a cookie or baking sheet. Season salmon with salt and pepper, then place salmon in the center of prepared foil paper. Divide vegetables into equal portions and arrange next to the salmon on each foil piece. Salt and pepper vegetables to taste. In a small bowl add butter, minced garlic, thyme, oregano, parsley, and paprika. Microwave for about 30 seconds. Mix in lemon juice and stock. Brush salmon and vegetables with the garlic butter sauce, top with sliced lemon. Fold foil papers in and pleat edges. This helps seals the juices in the foil paper making sure there are no tears or leaks. Bake salmon for about 10-12 minutes or until cooked through and flaky. This all depends on the thickness of your salmon. Remove and serve with sliced lemons and sprinkle with parsley. Enjoy!
First, find and choose the freshest salmon you can find.
If you can find Sockeye or Coho salmon, then you're in luck! They are the best type of salmon for this recipe.
You can use pink salmon since they're more common. However, it tends to be watery. So, you can halve the broth to achieve the same flaky texture. ;)
You can also slap this garlic butter salmon on a grill. Heat it to 375-400℉/195-205℃ for about 10-15 minutes.
Remember, the cooking time depends on the thickness of the salmon fillets. Please keep in mind that the nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary significantly based on the products used in the recipe.
