Simple Steamed Salmon

Simple Steamed Salmon recipe is now posted!  I'm trying to eat more fish and veggies this year - any dish loaded with flavor helps keep me on track!


Time: 30 mins


  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 bunch fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 4 square pieces of foil - large enough to cover each salmon piece


  1. Lay out the foil pieces flat - drizzle 1/2 teaspoon olive oil in the middle of each.
  2. Place 1 salmon fillet in the center of each piece of foil.
  3. Pour 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice on each fillet.
  4. Sprinkle the salmon fillets with 1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper, then place fresh dill leaves on each.
  5. Fold the foil over on all ends so the salmon is completely covered.  This way, it'll steam and cook evenly.
  6. Place it in a 350 degree oven for 15 mins or until cooked through.

I enjoyed this with a side of sliced mushrooms sautéed with olive oil & thyme leaves and green beans roasted in garlic salt for 10 mins on 425.
