Here are some things to consider in baking the salmon in the foil: Use a baking sheet to avoid the mess if there is a leak. If you have plenty of foil I advise you use a 3-4 sheet to guarantee that the fillets will be covered with foil. Mizzle the sauce all over the fillet. Then season it with salt and pepper. Finally, pull the foil edge and seal it thoroughly to prevent the sauce from exuding from the gaps.
Don’t overcook the salmon! Yes, it must be succulent on the inside but crisp on the outside. That’s what a perfect salmon baked in the foil should be like.
- 2 salmon fillets
- 1/2 pineapple, halved and sliced
- ¼ cup butter
- ⅓ cup honey
- 4 large cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (juice of ½ a lemon)
- Chopped fresh parsley
- Salt and pepper
- 1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
- 2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low-medium heat. Add honey, garlic and lemon. Stir until the honey has melted through the butter and the mixture is well combined. Add one tablespoon chopped parsley, mix it well and set aside.
- 3. Cut 4 sheets of 14-inch (35 cm) length aluminum foil. Divide pineapple slices among sheets layering in center in an even layer and sprinkle with pepper. Arrange salmon fillets on top and drizzle with the honey lemon garlic butter sauce. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and top with more chopped parsley.
- 4. Pull sides of foil inward and seal then roll edges up, try to leave a little room for heat to circulate. Transfer the packets on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven about 10-15 minutes. Enjoy with brown or white rice if desired and remaining sauce. Sprinkle with additional chopped parsley if you like. Enjoy!
