Lemon and Parsley Baked Salmon

Many people don’t realise that you can  transform plain food into something tasty with little effort.  I have friends who tell me they don’t like salmon or are bored of chicken, it’s so easy to stick to the same way of preparing certain foods, but this becomes boring.  This is why I experiment with flavours and try different ways of cooking simple dishes, so that I don’t get bored.  I love salmon and chicken, but if I stuck to cooking them in the same way week in week out, I’d be bored too!  So here’s a quick and simple way to cook salmon with some real flavour.


  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 2tbsp parsley (chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 1-1.5 tsp dijon mustard
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Half a tsp of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Make a foil parcel for the salmon fillets by folding a piece of foil in half and placing both fillets on one half of the foil.

Mix together all of the ingredients, pour over the salmon.

Fold the other half of the foil over the salmon and losely scrunch the edges together to form a parcel.

Bake in a preheated oven at 200c for approximately 25 minutes, until the salmon is cooked.
