1. To make the salmon in foil packets: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low-medium heat. Add honey, garlic and lemon. Whisk until the honey has melted through the butter and the mixture is well combined. Add one tablespoon chopped parsley, mix well and set aside.

3. Cut 4 sheets of 14-inch (35cm) length aluminum foil. Divide pineapple slices among sheets layering in center in an even layer and sprinkle with pepper. Arrange salmon fillets on top and drizzle with the honey lemon garlic butter sauce. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and top with more chopped parsley.

4. Pull sides of foil inward and seal then roll edges up, try to leave a little room for heat to circulate. Transfer the packets on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven about 10-15 minutes. Enjoy the lemon garlic butter salmon in foil packets with brown or white rice if desired and remaining sauce. Sprinkle with additional chopped parsley if you like. Enjoy!

Tips for the Lemon Garlic Butter Salmon in Foil Recipe

Use unsalted butter for this lemon garlic salmon because it lets you can control the amount of salt in this dish. We prefer using freshly squeezed lemon juice for this baked salmon recipe,  the fresh stuff has a much better flavor! Use freshly sliced pineapple because it is juicier.

What kind of salmon works best for the baked salmon in foil packets?

Our biggest tip for this baked salmon in foil recipe is to use good quality salmon fillet. By quality, we mean wild-caught salmon fillet. Farm-raised salmon sometimes leaves that gross mud flavor, especially when it’s not grilled.

How long do you cook salmon in the oven?

It will depend on the size and thickness of your salmon fillet. Count about 15 minutes in the oven at 400°F for a thick fillet. If it is a normal size, about 10-12 minutes should be ok. The salmon should reach an internal temperature of 145ºF and flake easily with a fork.

Can I use parchment paper instead of aluminum foil to make this baked salmon recipe?

If aluminum foil is a concern, you can use parchment paper instead. Or even better: line aluminum foil with parchment paper then wrap the packets. You will have a packet that is solidly wrapped, and still, the salmon won’t enter in contact with the foil.

How to store cooked salmon

Properly stored, cooked salmon will last 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator. Remove the foil and place completely cooled salmon in an airtight container; close and store in the fridge. You can also freeze the cooked salmon for up to 1 month.

    Very delicious! I like the pineapple flavor with it. I added white wine, pineapple juice & thickened the sauce.
