Dill and lemon baked salmon

I usually do this one on the BBQ but the day I made this it snowed so we did it in the oven.


One whole salmon  - you can remove the head or leave it on I like food that is not looking at me
1-2 lemons sliced about 1/4 inch thick
1 sliced onion
6 or so cloves of garlic
Large bunch of fresh dill - you could use dry if you wanted


Clean salmon inside and out, remove head and tail if preferred.
On top of a sheet of foil larger then your fish, place one layer of lemons, onion, dill, and garlic.

Lay fish on top
Inside fish place another layer of lemon, onion, dill and garlic

Repeat on the top then place a layer of foil and roll edges to make a nice package

Cook 45 minutes in a 375 oven or until salmon is cooked through and flakes easily.

To serve I find the easiest method is to slice down the backbone but not too deep so you cut the bones off, then across to make fillet sized piece, slide off the spine. Run your finger lightly over it to make sure you didn't miss any small pin bones but most should stay with the spine
