There is nothing better than wild king salmon caught fresh.  Except maybe if it’s white king salmon (a rare kind of salmon that has pale flesh instead of red or pink).  And if it’s caught by the sweetest fisherman in Southeast Alaska.

So right now, I have a fridge and freezer full of delicious white king.  This recipe is an easy way to prepare a large piece of salmon.


salmon fillet or fillets (this piece was about 2 lbs)
2 lemons
reduced fat butter with canola oil
fresh dill

How I Made It:

As frequent readers know, I am a fan of the foil packet meal.  This simple salmon recipe is no exception. 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lay two large sheets of aluminum foil on a cookie sheet. 

Slice the lemons into medium sized slices.  Lay them together on the foil to create a bed or platform for the salmon.  Rinse and pat dry the salmon before placing on top of the lemon slices.  Dot the salmon with small dabs of the butter.  Place sprigs of dill over the salmon.

Seal the foil into a packet.  Bake for 40 minutes or until no longer translucent.  Serve with sauteed vegetables or pasta.

How It Turned Out:

When it came out of the oven, it was so fragrant with the lemon and dill.  And tasty, too!
