  • 1 whole salmon filet
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
  • 1/2 lemon thinly sliced


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place the salmon filet onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, basil, oregano, and pepper. Pour directly over salmon and spread to cover. Place lemon slices on top.
  • Pull the sides and ends of the aluminum foil up and pinch together, covering the salmon completely.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork. Sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley just before serving.
