  • 4 thick firm boneless salmon fillets (about 4 ounces each)
  • Parchment paper or aluminum foil for baking
  • 4 thick slices of lemon
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 large cloves garlic peeled and halved
  • 8 small sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 8 sprigs fresh dill
  • 4 small sprigs fresh rosemary
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut four pieces of aluminum foil or parchment paper that are about twice the size of each salmon fillet.
  3. Sprinkle the salmon with a little bit of salt and pepper, and then place each fillet on the center of a parchment square.
  4. Place a slice of lemon on top of each piece of fish; drizzle with about 1 teaspoon of olive oil; put half of a garlic clove, 2 thyme sprigs, 2 dill sprigs, and 1 rosemary sprig on top.
  5. Fold the parchment paper to seal each parcel tightly shut.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
