Quick and tasty salmon steak dinner

First of all I apologize for the lack of blogs this week.  With GDC going on and lots of other stuff at work Ive been doing double time and have had no spare time to write.  But have no fear, next week will be back to normal. Earlier this week I made a delicious salmon steak dinner and many people were asking me for the recipe and I want to share it because its a great dinner that takes little time and almost no energy to make prooving that even if you have no time in the world you can still make a delicious and healthy dinner.

Foil Wrapped Salmon


  • 2 salmon steaks or fillets
  • olive oil
  • dill
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 sweet red or yellow pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste

First preheat and oven to 400. Next, clean the salmon and rub it with the olive oil, salt and pepper on each side.  Place some aluminum foil in a baking pan and drizzle some more olive oil in the bottom. Next chop up a handful of dill and cover the salmon. Dice the onion and pepper and add that to the foil as well.  Squeeze the juice of half the lemon onto the salmon and cut up some extra slices of lemon to place on top.  Close up the foil tightly and throw it in the oven until the salmon is thoroughly cooked (about 10-20 minutes depending on your oven and the thickness of the salmon).  Serve with some lemon slices and the peppers and onions.  You can also save the juice and use that as a sauce to drizzle on the salmon.

Easy huh?  Want something even easier? For a side dish cut up some squash or zuchinni and throw them in the pan OUTSIDE the foil wrapped salmon.  Drizzle them with some olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper.  Add a clove or two of crushed garlic and roast them while you are cooking the salmon.  Easy huh? You just made your main dish and side dish all at once with almost no effort at all! Enjoy!
