Lately the topic of traditions has come up in conversation. Specifically family dinners and the all important Sunday dinner to which seems a dying tradition in many households. A clear result of our modern on the go fast paced culture.

In times past, Sundays were for family time, days for church and the good old fashioned, Sunday dinner. . Believing its worth reviving, this not so fussy dinner makes it easy to do just that. Serve it up with your favorite side, (for us its rice and veg) and enjoy the company of loved ones around your table.

What you’ll need to make Easy Foil Salmon Recipe:

12oz of fresh salmon

3 sprigs of fresh rosemary

Salt and pepper to taste

1 heaping scoop of garlic

1 tbsp olive oil

3 tbs of butter

Foil

raw salmon filet with herbs and butte on a slice of foil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut two large slices of foil that are longer then the salmon laid out. Put one piece of foil on top of a cookie sheet. Place the salmon skin side down on top of the foil and cookie sheet. Taking the rosemary sprigs in a pinch between two fingers and glide down as the rosemary is released.

Chop it finely and place to the side. Sprinkle the olive oil all over the salmon. Add the garlic generously atop the salmon. Salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle the rosemary on top.

Take the butter and evenly distribute it on top in clumps. Place the other foil on top and make sure to wrap the bottom foil over the top foil all around the salmon.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes depending on oven. Salmon is done cooking when it flakes with a fork.
