The reason my kids loved this so much was because of the way I prepped it, I believe. First of all, I seasoned it very simply with just lemon and some herbs. It was a definite hit because of the simplicity, for sure! But also, they loved the fact that they each had their own little foil packet to unwrap and discover a piece of salmon inside. They found it to be a little surprise and to this day, they still want me to serve each of their pieces wrapped in foil so they can unwrap themselves. It has been such a fun thing for the kids to experience.
Check out what our friends over at Primavera had to say about this:
“This is the easiest way to make salmon in foil. It is baked over a bed of asparagus. You infuse your salmon with lemon, onion and dried oregano for a richer flavor.”
Not only is this the only way my kids love this, it is the simplest way to make it. This could not get any better!
2 salmon fillets (It is about 4 once each)
1 tbsp (15ml) extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
16 Asparagus spears
2 (40g) slices of onions
4 slices of lemon
1 tsp Fresh Parsley, chopped
Preheat oven to 400F.
In a medium bowl, place the two pieces of salmon; pour 1 tbsp olive oil and sprinkle salt, pepper and dried oregano.
Cut two sheets of foil. It has to be big enough to wrap the salmon and asparagus.
First place asparagus (about 8 spears) on the sheet of foil.
Layer fillets over asparagus.
Then top each with about 2 onion slices and 2 lemon slices.
Wrap sides of foil inward over salmon then fold on top and bottom of foil to enclose.
Place foil packets in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes. (if you cook more than this asparagus might be soggy)
Unwrap and using a large spatula, transfer the foil packets to plates and serve warm.

Quick Tip: Serve with a side of mashed potatoes
