Salmon baked in foil

Time: 20 mins

This is extremely easy, involves no washing up, and tastes delicious. The salmon ends up very moist.


  • Salmon fillets
  • Fresh herbs (dill is good)
  • White wine or water


  1. Remove the bones from the salmon fillets (I use a pair of pliers to do this – you can get a better grip than you can with eyebrow tweezers), and cut into portions if they’re too enormous.
  2. Place on a piece of foil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place fresh herb sprigs on top, or a bay leaf, or even dried herbs if you’re stuck. Add a glug of white wine.
  3. Wrap up the foil tightly (this makes sure that all the moisture is kept in and the salmon cooks quickly).
  4. Bake at 200ºC for 10-15 mins.

Serve this with sour cream, crispy bacon and chive sauce, or a yoghurt and mustard sauce, or a slice of lemon on the side.
