Steamed Baked Salmon
Teeming with vitamins, minerals, and other precious nutrients, salmon, especially wild-caught salmon, is so unbelievably good for you. This is an extra bonus for anyone who loves a fresh salmon recipe like this one for Steamed Baked Salmon. Steaming your salmon cutlets while baking, as this fish recipe calls for, is a wonderful way to seal in moisture and conserve as many nutrients as possible while cooking your salmon as well. You’ll be left with a juicy, delicious serving of fish for your family. High in protein, pantothenic acid, riboflavin, and phosphorus, salmon is also very high in selenium, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12. Eating fresh, wild-caught salmon is far better for you than consuming it frozen or canned. Farmed salmon does not contain nearly as many minerals as wild salmon does, and can also contain more saturated fat and calories. This easy salmon recipe is definitely one of Grandmother’s favourites! It serves up to four people and only takes a half hour to make.*

4 (5 ounces each) salmon fillets
2 teaspoons olive oil plus 2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
4 Tablespoons water
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Place the salmon pieces into a large bowl. Drizzle on 2 teaspoons of olive oil and the salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice, oregano and thyme.
Cut 4 pieces of aluminum foil, each one big enough to form a packet that can hold a piece of salmon.
Divide the oil/lemon mixture onto the bottoms of each piece of aluminum foil and place a piece of salmon on top, drizzle any remaining oil on top of each.
Put one tablespoon of water into each packet.
Wrap each fish to form a sealed packet.
Place packets into a baking dish and place into the preheated oven.
Bake until cooked through, about 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and transfer the salmon, leaving any skin behind onto a serving dish and serve with your meal of choice.
