Marinated salmon is cooked with capers in convenient aluminum foil packets that make for easy clean up. This recipe will work great on the grill, too!
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1 pinch kosher salt
- 2 (8 ounce) salmon fillets
- 2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed
- 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
In a shallow dish, mix the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and salt. Pierce the salmon fillets on both sides with a fork, and place in the dish. Coat with the olive oil mixture, and marinate at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Place each salmon fillet on a large sheet of aluminum foil. Fold the foil around the fillets to form packets. Pour the marinade mixture over the fillets, and top with capers and red bell pepper strips. Tightly seal packets, and place in a baking dish.
Cook salmon 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until easily flaked with a fork.
