Garlic Lovers Salmon in Foil (Grilled or Baked)

Source: http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/garlic-lovers-salmon/


INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 pound side of salmon, boneless and skinless

  • 4 tablespoons butter8 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped

  • 1/4 cup dry white wine

  • 2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice, plus extra lemon wedges for serving

  • salt and pepper

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley*

  • 1/4 cup thinly-sliced green onions

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat oven to 375°F.  Or heat a grill to medium heat

  2. .Line a large baking dish with a large piece of aluminum foil.

  3. In a small saucepan, heat butter over medium-high heat until melted. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.  (You want the garlic to be partly- but not fully-cooked.)  

  4. Remove from heat and stir in the white wine and lemon juice.

  5. Using a pastry brush, brush a tablespoon of the butter mixture on the foil until it is evenly covered. Lay the salmon out on the foil. Then pour the remainder of the butter-garlic mixture on top of the salmon and brush it around until it evenly covers the salmon. Season the salmon evenly with a few generous pinches of salt and pepper.

  6. Fold the sides of the aluminum foil up and over the top of the salmon until it is completely enclosed.  (If your sheet of foil is not large enough, just place a second sheet of foil on top and fold the edges so that it forms a sealed packet.

  7. To Cook In The Oven: Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until the salmon is almost completely cooked through.  (Cooking times will vary on the thickness of your salmon, so I recommend checking it a few minutes early if you have a thinner cut of salmon.)

  8. Remove the salmon from the oven and carefully open and pull back the aluminum foil so that the top of the fish is completely exposed. (Be careful, lots of hot steam will be released!)  Change the oven setting to broil, then return the fish to the oven and broil for 3-4 minutes, or until the top of the salmon and the garlic are slightly golden and the fish is cooked through. (Keep a close eye on the salmon while broiling, though, to be sure that the garlic does not burn.)

  9. To Cook On The Grill: Carefully transfer the packet of salmon to the grill, and grill for 12-14 minutes, or until the salmon is almost completely cooked through. (Cooking times will vary on the thickness of your salmon, so I recommend checking it a few minutes early if you have a thinner cut of salmon.) Carefully open and pull back the aluminum foil so that the top of the fish is completely exposed. (Be careful, lots of hot steam will be released!)  Continue cooking for 3-4 minutes, or until the top of the salmon and the garlic are slightly golden and the fish is cooked through.

  10. Remove salmon from the oven or grill. Sprinkle the top of the salmon evenly with parsley and green onions, and serve immediately.
