Total Time: 25 minPrep: 10 minCook: 15 minYield: 4Level: easy
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
Remove any visible bones and cut off the head and tail (if it hasn’t already been done for you) If using a poacher place the tray in the poacher, add 1/4 cup water and place your salmon in the tray skin side down.
If you do not have a fish poacher (how many of us do?) you can use any oven safe pan large enough to hold your fish.
Just crumple and crinkle a medium sized sheet of tin foil and place your fish on the foil skin side down.
Add enough water to just come to the edge of the foil without spilling onto the fish (approx 1/3 cup).
On top of the fish sprinkle all ingredients.
Cover with lid or tin foil.
Cook for 12-20 min’s.
For RARE fish, cook just until white liquid emerges from fish (this is the cooked fish oil).
It will be pinky white on the outside and peachy pink inside.
For more well done fish, cook until fish is a pinky white color all the way through.
Place on a platter to serve.
Leave onions, capers and dill on the fish.
Slice lemons on the side for those who like fresh lemon juice.
