enjoy - this is very easy & delicious make sure that the salmon is fresh, & rich in colour when you buy it


  • fresh salmon fillets - preferably with skin on
  • capers
  • fresh basil, chives, oregano, parsley
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 lemon for the juice
  • 1 lemon - finely sliced


finely chop all the fresh herbs
tear off 2 pieces of aluminum cooking foil & place one on top of the other
lightly oil the foil, sprinkle half of the herbs, & place the salmon onto the foil
season to taste & sprinkle remaining herbs on top of the fillets
add capers
squeeze lemon juice over the fish
place lemon slices in a line down the middle of the fillet
seal the foil, so that the fish is completely encapsulated in the foil
bake in pre-heated oven @ 140deg Celcius for about 30 mins, until flesh is flaky - depending on thickness of fillets

once cooked, remove from foil serve with fresh salad - the salmon can be placed on a bed of mashed potato if desired
