Salmon in Foil Pouch
Author: Melissa
  • 4-6 oz filet of fresh salmon
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Dash of salt (the black olives and capers are very salty, so I don’t use too much salt)
  • 2 Tbsp bread crumbs (plain or seasoned is fine – if using seasoned, you may want to reduce the salt and pepper a bit – I wrote this recipe using plain)
  • 1 oz sliced black olives (about ½ small can; kalamata olives would be great too)
  • 1 Tbsp capers
  • ¼ cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 slices fresh lemon
  • 1 Tbsp parsley (I used dried, but fresh would be great)
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  1. Lay out 1 sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil, approximately 3x the width of the salmon filet
  2. Spray foil with cooking spray (I used olive oil spray) and lay the salmon in the middle of the sheet
  3. Season the filet with salt, pepper, and bread crumbs
  4. Add the olives, capers, and tomatoes
  5. Lay lemon slices on top and sprinkle parsley over the whole thing
  6. Drizzle with olive oil
  7. Bring left and right sides of the foil together and roll them together, downward until the foil is almost touching the salmon (you want to leave a little space between the salmon and the foil)
  8. Seal the front and back so that you have a pouch
  9. Place the packet on a baking sheet and cook at 400 Degrees for 25-30 minutes
  10. Open carefully – there will be a lot of steam!
  11. Enjoy!
