Salmon is one of my favorite ingredients when I cook low-carb meals. It’s delicious, healthy and my whole family loves it. Cooking salmon perfectly can be tricky, though. The recipe below uses a foolproof salmon cooking method that turns out moist, flaky, flavorful fish. In addition, it makes cleanup a breeze.
Baking salmon in a pouch made of aluminum foil prevents the fish from drying out. At the same time, the sealed package keeps the flavors of any topping ingredients inside, infusing them deep into the fish for penetrating flavor. This recipes calls for a simple combination of butter, garlic and lemon, but you can add all kinds of ingredients, such as herbs and spices, for even more flavor. When the fish is done, simply slide it onto serving plates and toss the foil packets, along with all the messy fish drippings, in the trash.
