Aimee’s Salmon Recipe

First, you start with a salmon caught on the C-Worthy - That's very important.

It is an amazing (and easy!) recipe- from Giada De Laurentis’s “Everyday Italian.” Here is the recipe- with my changes to it…

Salmon Baked in Foil
1 can diced tomatoes, drained (I used the low sodium- with oregano & basil)
2 shallots, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
small pinch of salt & pepper
(if you don’t use the diced tomatoes with herbs in it, add 1 1/2 tsp oregano & thyme)
4 salmon fillets (about 5 oz each)

Preheat oven to 400. Mix the above ingredients in a bowl. Take 4 lg sheets of foil and place the salmon skin down on each. If you don’t oil the foil the skin sticks right to the foil when you remove the fish from the packet- magic! Divide up the liquild mixture on top of each fillet and and wrap tightly. Place on rimmed baking sheet and bake for 25 min. Present them in their foil packets or serve over pasta/ rice and sprinkle with parmesan if you like. Enjoy and let me know if you try it!



  1. Yeah!!!! Thanks

  2. i made this last night with skinless tail pieces of salmon. altered it a bit by adding seeded jalapeno and some garlic to the tomato mixture and put it all in a single layer in a large baking dish – put it in the convection oven a little longer than recommended and also put parmesan cheese on it while it was cooking. served it on seasoned brown/wild rice mixture.
    wow – very good.

  3. Tried this last night with some fresh caught plump Frankfort coho in the 9lb range. Fantastic stuff!!! We put it over angel hair pasta and added a little salt/pepper.

    My kids, wife and I finished off that fish no problem.

    Thanks for the recipe.

  4. Tried this recipe, and we loved it. Thanks for sharing it.
