Michael Symon's Salmon Cooked In Foil

This is such an easy way to make fish, and it took almost no prep or time.  This 5 in 5 cookbook by Michael Symon has been great for us, the recipes always turn out well, and it allows us to have great food in almost no time.  I love that!  This received an 8 from all of us, and we didn't have any of the liquid the fish cooked in, so the calories are a little lower than what I figured out, 493 per serving. Here's what to do:

5 4 oz salmon fillets
salt and pepper to taste
5 sprigs rosemary
1 t crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 c olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 c dry white wine or broth or salted water
1 c torn fresh basil leaves

Preheat the oven to 450°.  Season both sides of the salmon with salt and pepper, then lay each piece onto a sheet of foil.  Top with rosemary, salt, red pepper, and a little olive oil, garlic and then season again with salt and pepper.  Form a pouch with the foil, and before serving, pour a little wine into each bundle.  Seal the packets and place on a cookie sheet.  Cook for about 5 minutes, more if desired.  Remove from the liquid, top with basil, and serve.

  1. Did this really only take 5 minutes to cook? I usually cook my salmon at least 20. But I have never tried cooking it in foil as I have some other fish. Love mom
