Serves: 4

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 15-20 minutes


  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Drizzle olive oil over the salmon, ensuring each fillet is well-coated.
  • Sprinkle minced garlic, salt, and pepper over the fillets.
  • Lay lemon slices on top of each fillet and sprinkle with fresh dill.
  • Cover the baking sheet with aluminum foil, creating a loose tent over the salmon.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets. The salmon should flake easily with a fork when done.
