Simple Lemon Butter Salmon

This is Lemon Butter Salmon is my go-to salmon recipe. It is quick and easy and so is the cleanup. It works well on other types of fish too, especially grouper! For a variation, use Smokehouse Maple seasoning instead of lemon juice!

Simple Lemon Butter Salmon Recipe

Yield: 4

Ingredients for the Simple Lemon Butter Salmon

  • 4 4-6 oz salmon filets

  • 2 lemons

  • 2 tbsp butter

  • Salt to taste

Instructions for the Simple Lemon Butter Salmon

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • Cut 4 aluminum foil squares about 12-15 inches square

  • Spray foil with non-stick spray

  • Place a salmon filet in the center of each piece of foil, skin side down. (I leave the skin on because the meat flakes away easily after cooking but you can remove the skin before cooking if preferred.)

  • Squeeze the juice of half a lemon on each salmon filet.

  • Add 1/2 tbsp butter on top of each salmon filet.

  • Sprinkle with a dusting of salt.

  • Roll up the foil around the salmon filet to create a tent.

  • Put the foil-wrapped salmon filets into a 13x9 casserole dish

  • Bake for about 20 minutes.

  • Open up the tents for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
