    1. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    2. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, brown sugar, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper in a bowl.
    3. Place a large piece of foil on a baking tray and brush with olive oil. Place salmon in the middle of the foil, skin-side down. Drizzle with olive oil mixture. Fold up the edges of the foil over the salmon to create a packet, making sure to seal the edges.

    No changes came out great  -  17 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This had good flavor. Are used fresh time because I had it on hand. Also I opened up the foil and bake for another 10 minutes because I wanted it to be a little drier than it was.  -  24 Jan 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Forgot to set the timer, but I believe the marinade coupled with the foil made a HUGE difference! First time my salmon came out so moist!  -  23 Dec 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
