Lemon Salmon in Foil

This was SO easy! I have family coming to babysit my son this evening, so I figured I would make one of these for myself for lunch and then prep the rest so that it just had to be thrown in a pan.  It turned out great!

  • 4 6oz wild salmon filets
  • 4 tsp avocado oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 4 tsp capers
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 8 Tbsp dry white wine
  • aluminum foil


Place the salmon on a piece of foil large enough to wrap and cover. Rub the salmon with avocado oil, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle with thyme, and add a layer of lemon slices over the top. Add 1 tsp capers to each. Pour 1 Tbsp lemon juice and 2 Tbsp white wine into each foil packet.  I used a plate with sides underneath the foil so that the liquid wouldn’t pour out before I had a chance to seal it up.  In a skillet over medium high heat, place the foil packets. Cook for 6-8 minutes depending on how you like your salmon.  8 minutes yielded salmon that was fully cooked through. Be careful when opening as it will be very hot.  Place the salmon on a plate and pour juices over the top.
