Salmon baked in foil

I have never been a big fan of fish dishes but when I tried this salmon recipe I changed my mind. I am sure that if you prepare this meal at home, it will disappear faster than any other food. 

For this dish I used lemon, butter, fresh herbs and dried juniper berries. These berries give the salmon absolutely new and luscious taste.  I swear this recipe is super easy to prepare and absolutely great. It’s a simple meal with a refreshing taste that anyone can make. And I almost forgot- it´s an easy way to prepare a fish quickly and in a non smelly way 🙂


  •  salmon fillet
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices of butter
  • fish spices
  •  fresh rosemary
  • 4 bay leaves
  • dried juniper berries
  • 4 slices of lemon


  • Preheat oven to 180°C
  • Rinse salmon fillet under cold running water and pat dry.  Cut a piece of foil long and wide enough to wrap the whole salmon twice.
  • Butter one side of the the tin foil leaving there some chunks of it. Season it with salt, pepper and fish spice, add 2 bay leaves, 2 slices of lemon and few juniper berries.
  • Place the salmon on the buttered part of a foil and put the same ingredients on the top of the salmon, plus add rosemary.
  • Wrap the ends of the tin foil to form a spiral shape. Fold the sides of the foil over the fish , covering completely; seal the packets closed. Place the foil packet on a  large baking sheet.
  • Bake the salmon for 15 minutes. Then cut a top of the tin foil, open it a bit and bake for another 5 minutes
  • serve 🙂
